What you need to know before your trail

Left with bald patches thanks to the wicked doings of a murderer from a previous investigation, Agatha flees to coastal Wyckhadden to re-grow her lost locks. With hair tonic supplied by a local witch, Agatha’s tresses begin to flow – but the witch is found bludgeoned to death.

The odd elderly residents of Agatha’s elegantly faded hotel seem innocuous, but as she delves deeper she discovers secrets best left and powerful motives for revenge. Balancing the amorous attentions of police inspector Jimmy Jessop with an ever more treacherous search for the killer, Agatha is at her wits’ end – and ready to cast a spell of her own .

Travel Guide

Agatha Raisin's Cotswolds

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!
