Agatha Raisin is off and running - running away from home and the unrequited, unreturned love of her neighbor. She settles into a comfortable hotel in the seaside village of Fryham, to mend her heart and recover from a hair-raising experience.

A terrifically terrifying prediction, a bottle of hair tonic and a love potion get Agatha in more trouble than she ever imagined.
