When militant rambler Jessica Tartinck is found bashed to death in a field, former PR whiz Agatha Raisin is forced to go undercover to get to the bottom of the grisly crime. Synopsis - AGATHA RAISIN, retired PR whiz and recovering career woman, has settled into her comfortable Carsely cottage, but is still restless to fit in and make her mark among the locals. Still pining after next-door neighbor JAMES LACEY, she joins a local ramblers' group, of which James is a member, only to find him becoming entangled in a romantic web spun by rich recent arrival MARY FORTUNE. Agatha's life is thrown into further disarray when the body of a militant rambler, JESSICA TARTINCK, is found bashed to death in a field. A boisterous member of another rambling troupe that runs out of Dembley, Jessica was the chapter's chief agitator, and had amassed her share of enemies, some within the group itself. A concerned member of the group, DEBORAH CAMDEN, hires Agatha to investigate the death. But the case takes an unexpected twist when Agatha and James are forced to pose undercover as man and wife in the hopes of getting to the bottom of the grisly crime.
