Overview

When therapist Jill Davent moved to the village of Carsely, Agatha Raisin was not a fan. Not only was this therapist romancing Agatha's ex-husband but she dug up details of Agatha's not-too-glamorous origins. Jill also counsels a woman, Gwen Simple, that Agatha firmly believes assisted her son in some grisly murders, although there is no proof. Not one to keep her feelings to herself, Agatha tells anyone that would listen that Jill is a charlatan and better off dead. Agatha could only sigh with relief when the therapist took an office in Mircester.

When Agatha learns that Jill had hired a private detective to investigate her background, she barges into Jill's office and gives her a piece of her mind, yelling "I could kill you " So when Jill is found strangled to death in her office two days later, Agatha becomes the prime suspect. But Agatha, along with her team of private detectives, is determined to prove her innocence and find the real culprit. This time Agatha must use her skills to save her own skin.

With Dishing the Dirt, MC Beaton proves that "once you meet Agatha Raisin, you'll keep coming back."(New York Journal of Books)

Jealousy prompts Agatha Raisin to visit therapist Jill Devant, who has attracted the attention of Agatha’s ex-husband, James Lacey, in bestseller Beaton’s lively 26th cozy featuring the remarkably intuitive private detective (after 2014’s The Blood of an Englishman). The session at Jill’s office in Carsely, the scenic Cotswolds village where Agatha resides, doesn’t go well, since Jill accuses Agatha of lying about her past. Agatha has further reason to resent Jill because Jill is counseling Gwen Simple, who Agatha is convinced was an accessory to murder in her previous case. When someone strangles Jill, gossip suggests that Agatha was involved, given her quite public disdain for the therapist. Agatha, aided by her loyal team of investigators, sets out to prove her innocence, but as usual her penchant for allowing handsome suitors to distract her complicates her search for the killer. Fans of traditional English mysteries who appreciate oddball sleuths will be rewarded. Agent: Barbara Lowenstein, Lowenstein Associates. (Sept.)
