This is a BBC Radio dramatization of the first two Agatha Raisin mysteries by M.C. Beaton. The production qualities are excellent, with trained actors doing the voices of the various characters. Agatha is an intriguing character, being somewhat more curmudugeonly than you would expect a successful founder of a London Public Relations firm to be. Both stories held my interest very well. As with the Agatha Christie mysteries, the problem for the author is how the amateur sleuth can get involved with a murder investigation without interfering with the police. Beaton's approach is to make Agatha good friends with the local police detective, who indulges her somewhat. Now that I have heard these two discs, about 1 hour 45 min total, I want to go back and read or listen to the complete novels to see what was left out. But this is a very entertaining introduction to Beaton's second major series (after Hamish MacBeth) and I recommend the set.
