Agatha Raisin is the detective in this novel. The action is a bit of romp in the Cotswold. I read it, but can't say I really enjoyed it. The main characters behave quite silly, unlike any detective story I've read. Perhaps some readers like MC Beaton's humorous accounts, but I don't think I'll be tempted with another of her novels. In this novel several villagers' bodies are found dead around or on the village green tree, called the Witches' Tree. By the time, Beaton reveals the murderer, I had rather forgotten about those dead bodies - so much nonsense between the deed and this discovery.
