But when it seems like all she's doing is looking for missing cats while being outclassed by her sixty-seven year-old secretary, she wonders if she has finally bitten off more than she can chew? When the wealthy Mrs. Laggat-Brown walks in, claiming that her daughter is receiving death threats, Agatha realizes that this is the chance she's been waiting for.

I thought I would stop liking this series once Agatha Raisin started her detective agency, but her new credentials & resources added more realism to her investigations, and the new agency characters did not overshadow her.

This is the first Agatha Raisin mystery that I've read. Although I'm a big mystery fan, this was only OK in my book. I think I agree with the Publishers Weekly review that said ".. an insistent theme that won't deter Beaton fans but is unlikely to win new readers." I might try another one sometime but I don't know.
