9781250026750: The Walkers of Dembley: An Agatha Raisin Mystery (Agatha Raisin Mysteries)

The Walkers of Dembley continues the tradition in M. C. Beaton's beloved Agatha Raisin mystery series―now a hit show on Acorn TV and public television.

After six months in London, Agatha Raisin returns to her beloved Cotswold village―and her dashing neighbor, James Lacey. Well, sort of. James might not be so interested in Agatha. But soon enough, Agatha becomes consumed by her other passion: crime-solving. A woman has been found dead in a lonely field nearby. Her name is Jessica Tartinck, a hiker who infuriated wealthy landowners by insisting on her hiking club's right to trek across their properties.

Now it's up to Agatha, with James's help, to launch an investigation. Together, they will follow no shortage of leads; many of Jessica's fellow Dembley walkers seem all too willing and able to commit murder. But the trail of a killer is as easy to lose as your heart―and your life. So Agatha and James had better watch their every step. . . in The Walkers of Dembley, the fourth book in M.C. Beaton's bestselling series.

From the Inside Flap:

"TRENCHANT AND DROLL."
--St. Petersburg Times
After six months in London, Agatha Raisin returns to her beloved Cotswold village--and to her attractive neighbor, James Lacey. True, James is less than thrilled to see her, but Agatha is soon consoled by a sensational homicide.
The victim, found in a lonely field, is hiker Jessica Tartinck, who enraged wealthy landowners by insisting on her club's right to hike over their properties. Agatha lures James into helping with the investigation, and there are many leads to follow, for Jessica's fellow walkers seem able, even willing, to commit murder. But the trail of a slippery killer may also be the royal road to love--and death. . . .
"Beaton has a winner in the irrepressible, romance-hungry Agatha."
