WEDDING BELLS SOUND A DEATH KNELL
Moonstruck Agatha Raisin is tying the knot with distinguished but reserved James Lacey before he can have second thoughts. After all, her first husband Jimmy must be long since dead of alcohol poisoning. But Jimmy Raisin hears the news in his cardboard residence among London's down-and-outs-and reaches Carsely village just in time to stop Agatha from committing bigamy.
Promptly jilted by her handsome groom, feisty Agatha pushes the offensive Jimmy in a ditch--where he is later found strangled. Even the local Ladies' Society believes her--or James--to be the killer. And soon the unhappy couple, thrown together again by their investigation of Jimmy's insalubrious past, is risking life and limb--not to mention love--as they ferret out dark doings that make Carsely the multiple murder capital of the English Cotswolds.
