Plot:
Just back from an extended stay in London, Agatha Raisin finds herself
greeted by torrential rains and an old, familiar feeling of boredom.
When her handsome new neighbor, Paul Chatterton, shows up on her
doorstep, she tries her best to ignore his obvious charms, but his
sparkling black eyes and the promise of adventure soon lure her into
another investigation.

Paul has heard rumors about Agatha’s
reputation as the Cotswold village sleuth and wastes no time offering
their services to the crotchety owner of a haunted house. Whispers,
footsteps, and a cold white mist are plaguing Mrs. Witherspoon, but the
police have failed to come up with any leads, supernatural or otherwise.
The neighbors think it’s all a desperate ploy for attention, but Paul
and Agatha are sure something more devious is going on. Someone’s
playing tricks on Mrs. Witherspoon, and when she turns up dead under
suspicious circumstances, Agatha finds herself caught up in another
baffling murder mystery.
