Agatha Raisin and the Love From Hell

Category: Fiction / Mystery
224 pages; ISBN: 0312207662

Rating: 9/10  (Ratings explained)
Reviewer: Harriet Klausner


Agatha Raisin has chased after James Lacey for years hoping he will marry her. She finally succeeds, but after the honeymoon, James begins to criticize everything Agatha does from her desire to work to her smoking to her clothing. The marriage disintegrates and Agatha moves back into her cottage next door to that of James.

One day James turns up missing and blood is found all over his car and house. At first the police suspect Agatha, but that changes when the woman James is dating turns up dead. Law enforcement now believed that James killed Melissa before vanishing. Agatha disagrees and accompanied by Sir Charles tries to find out whom really murdered Melissa.

AGATHA RAISIN AND THE LOVE FROM HELL is a fascinating tale of greed, insanity, and revenge. Agatha is a firebrand not afraid to speak her mind even when it offends someone else. The mystery is solved using a slow systematic sleuthing style supplemented with a touch of guesswork and luck helping. Readers will enjoy this tale especially due to its stunning climax.
