Thirteenth Agatha Raisin book in which a new man comes to down to perk up Aggie's flagging interest. The curate sent to help out Rev. Bloxby is a nearly perfect, angelic looking man who has the locals flocking to church every Sunday. Some people can see through his guise and refer to him as "slimy" but Agatha is smitten and accepts an invitation to dinner at the home of an elderly parishioner where Tristan, the curate, is being housed. When he turns up dead the next day, guess who's thrown headfirst into the fray? With her usual "Watsons" Roy Silver and Sir Charles Fraith out of the picture, Agatha's new neighbor John Armitage, the author of detective stories, helps her investigate. Enjoyable visit to Carsely, and in this one, Agatha seems to show her soft side a bit more.
