Description

Penelope Keith stars as Agatha Raisin in two more full-cast BBC Radio 4 dramas.

After a lifetime spent in public relations, the drinking and smoking one-woman dynamo that is Agatha Raisin struggles to adapt to life in a quiet Cotswold village. Penelope Keith stars as Agatha Raisin, Miss Marple with attitude, in two full-cast dramas based on the best-selling books by M. C. Beaton.

"The Quiche of Death": In her first extended radio appearance, Agatha Raisin determines to make her mark by winning the local baking competition. When the judge is poisoned by her efforts, she investigates and uncovers a web of extra-marital sex and pastry-based favours.

"The Vicious Vet": A handsome vet is found stabbed with a syringe full of tranquiliser. Was it an accident or did someone put him to sleep? Agatha sets off on a tale of beastly behaviour and animal passion.

First time with this author and this character

And I loved it. I hadn't caught that this was a performance versus an audiobook, so I was taken aback during the first few minutes. But I enjoyed myself thoroughly and can't wait to hear the next one! I see the next one is audio, not performance. I'm slighly disappointed but I'm sure since Penelope Keith is the narrator I'll be happy. I highly recommend this series, this narator and this performance.

Dramatized Radio Production, Not Unabridged Book

My rating is not a comment on the well-respected actors in this performance, it's a reflection of my disappointment when I realized this recording is not the unabridged book read by a single narrator but a short (approx 1 hour) dramatized production for radio. Now I know to check the file details before buying!

Penelope Keith

Penelope Brings Agatha Raisin to life, I enjoy hearing her so much I only wish they didn't change her out of the audio books. I won't buy any more audio books until they bring her back.

I am a huge fan of Agatha BUT

This is a very short production that doesn't do either book justice. Much of the plot lines have been changed and the most hilarious escapade Agatha has had (and I have read them all) does not occur. This is perhaps satisfying as a radio production if you don't know Agatha, but you will be disappointed if you are at all familiar with the Raisin series.

Always a fun listen

I like the characters that M.C. Beaton creates and I do like to listen to them frequently between some of the much longer much more involved mysteries.
