Cotswolds inhabitants are used to bad weather, but the night sky is especially foggy as Rory and Molly Harris, the new vicar and his wife, drive slowly home from a dinner party in their village of Sumpton Harcourt. They struggle to see the road ahead – but then screech to a halt.
Right in front of them, aglow in the headlights of their car, a body hangs from a lightning-blasted tree at the edge of town. But it’s not suicide; Margaret Darby, an elderly spinster of the parish, has been murdered – and the villagers are bewildered as to who would commit such a crime, and why.
Agatha Raisin rises to the occasion, delighted to have some excitement back in her life. But Sumpton Harcourt is an isolated and unfriendly village, she finds a place that poses more questions than answers. And when two more murders follow the first, Agatha begins to fear for her reputation – and her life.
