Agatha Raisin, snug in her Carsley cottage, is overwhelmed by boredom until a report of a haunted house sends her to investigate. Suddenly, middle-aged Agatha is aglow with romance and excitement.
But the glow fades fast. It turns out the victim of the haunting is a universally disliked old biddy, and the ghost is most likely someone playing a practical joke. Then an old lady is murdered, and, for Agatha, solving a homicide is more fun than hunting a ghost. Very soon she s up to her usual tricks, involving the villagers, local police, and, naturally, her handsome new neighbor."
