Dead on Target: An Agatha Raisin Mystery (Agatha Raisin Mysteries, 34)

We rated this book:


While attending a village fete, Agatha Raisin participates in an archery demonstration. Shortly after, she discovers a dying man while trying to retrieve a lost puppy from the adjacent woods. The man is a local landowner with an arrow sticking out of his chest. And since Agatha is the last person to see him alive, Detective Chief Inspector Wilkes decides to try and pin the murder on Agatha.

Luckily, Agatha plans to investigate independently, and she’s got some inside help from her new police friend and occasional dance partner, Detective John Glass. She is sure the victim, Sir Godfrey Pride, might have ruffled a few feathers when he decided to change his will and plans for his estate. It remains to be seen if the murderer is someone close to the victim or a gangster hoping to further his criminal empire by purchasing Pride’s estate for redevelopment.

Fans of Agatha will not be disappointed with this latest installment. She is her usual bossy, opinionated self but remains loyal and faithful to her friends and colleagues as she seeks to solve another mystery. Dead on Target is full of fun escapes that keep me returning for more.
