"Agatha Raisin has finally opened her own detective agency. 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. But as she careens through the case, flirting with the chief suspect and alienating her friends, Agatha herself begins to wonder if she will be able to solve this case"--Container.

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.
