What you need to know before your trail

Agatha Raisin has never been one for enforced holiday cheer, but her friendly little village of Carsely has always prided itself on its traditional Christmas festivities. However, this year Mr John Sunday, an officer with the Cotswold Health and Safety Board, has chosen Christmas as the time to crack down on what he sees as gross misconduct by everyone. But when Mr Sunday goes too far, he is soon found lying face down in the petunias, very much dead. Agatha is on the case, but with so many people having threatened the life of the victim, it’s hard to know where to start….

Agatha Raisin’s Cotswolds

Cotswolds – “Carsely”

Agatha Raisin lives in a fictional village – Carsely – in the Cotswolds but even though you can’t visit the village, there are plenty of places you can go and walk around as if you were Agatha herself. Just don’t get into quite the same trouble as her, will you?

Some ideas of places to visit:

Charlbury

This is a nice little village. Could it be Carsely?

Moreton in Marsh

This is the village where the “Books Yule Love “ bookshop is and where market day is. We can imagine Agatha popping in here! What a lovely name!

Evesham

This may be the place to go and find out more about the village whilst Agatha gets her hair done in the local hairdressers. The Evesham Road features in the novel.

Chipping Camden

This is the village where Agatha and James go for a spot of dinner. Try the Red Bull for real Cotswold charm!
