あらすじ・解説

After a lifetime spent in public relations, one-woman dynamo Agatha Raisin struggles to adapt to life in a quiet country village - but she soon finds that there is murder and mayhem aplenty to keep her busy. 

Among the cases she has to deal with are a poisoned quiche; a vet who has been ‘put to sleep’; a hanged horticulturist; a murdered rambler and a curate who meets his Maker somewhat sooner than expected. Then there’s the treasure hunt with a rather nasty prize at the end; the secretive salon owner; the husband who is quite definitely ex; the murder on the dancefloor and the fairies at the bottom of the garden. 

With all this and handsome neighbour James Lacey to deal with, the ‘Columbo of the Cotswolds’ has her hands full! 

This complete radio drama collection includes the following stories: The Quiche of Death, The Vicious Vet, The Potted Gardener, The Walkers of Dembley, The Curious Curate, The Buried Treasure, The Wizard of Evesham, The Murderous Marriage, The Terrible Tourist and The Fairies of Fryfam.

批評家のレビュー

"Agatha Raisin - sharp, witty, hugely intelligent, unfailingly entertaining, delightfully intolerant and oh so magnificently non-PC." (Anne Robinson)

"If there is one thing better than watching Penelope Keith, it is listening to her." (The Times)

Such a treat

It’s Penelope Keith! A full cast and the abridged books make these perfect for my commute. Ms Keith is fabulous as usual and the other actors excellent. James is engaging, bringing his and Agatha’s relationship to life.

Absolutely Fabulous!!

Penelope Keith is an absolute favorite as Agatha Raisin, but the full cast production of the series of these books is the absolute best. I have listened to many full cast productions on Audible and they are sooo much better than single narrator productions. This an steal for a credit!

Penelope Keith is Perfect as Agatha Raisin

I adore Penelope Keith, and she does a wonderful job with M.C. Beaton's Agatha Raisin.

This BBC Radio Drama Collection is a delightful way to enjoy the Agatha Raisin mysteries. In fact, I find that I prefer this collection to the actual unabridged audiobooks. The main characters (i.e. Roy Silver and James Lacey) are more appealing in this version.

A new favorite for a major Agatha Christie fan!

I am obsessed with Agatha Christie audiobooks--I own just about every title their is and have listened to each one so often that they're practically memorized. When I found the Agatha Raisin TV series, I loved it so much that I raced over to Audible to see if there were audiobooks. When I found this collection I was thrilled! I couldn't be happier with this audiobook. The dramatisation is so fantastic that I feel like I can SEE what's going on. The stories are a tiny bit different from the TV series, but not enough so that it's annoying. The stories are long enough to be interesting but don't drag on. I know I will listen to this over and over again! Hope there's another one soon!

Mrs Raisin at her best!!!!

This lively performance was wonderful - I've read most of Agatha Raisin's books - and am a fan.

But to have them brought to life in this audio-book made these adventures something I could

share with my hubby! He was happy to meet Mrs. Raisin and her quirky ways... the chapters

made a long road-trip most enjoyable! Thank you!

Lighthearted detective stories

Penelope Keith is far more like the Agatha Raisin in the books than the TV version.
This collection is the dramatisation of the first 10 books. They are light hearted detective books which you can just listen and unwind to without too much thinking.

Agatha Raisin Collection

Penelope Keith is superb in this - heaven knows why she didn't get the gig for the tv version.She is the reason I listened to these when they were broadcast on 4 extra, and to have 9 hour's worth to listen to is a real treat.

There is only one Agatha Raisin ....

.... and it's Penelope Keith!

Just as I wanted to be Margo Leadbetter as a child, now I think I'm turning into Agatha as an adult. Who cares, so long as it's Penelope Keith. Under it all, Agatha's heart of stone is still a heart and it's in the right place. She tries so hard and it always goes to pot and ends in murder.

Everyone in these dramas is perfectly cast. A fab audio recording.

Wonderful Penelope Keith

I don't really like MC Beaton's work, I find the books badly written and rather coarse, but with Penelope Keith playing Agatha Raisin they are a joy.

Entertaining, but...

This is an enjoyable drama collection but it's hard to get away from a reminiscence of Penelope Keith's role in 'To The Manor Born' where her upper-class accent and continual 'put-downs' are more relevant. Here it becomes an annoyance and it's hard to imagine her character ever running her own PR company; she'd frighten most clients away. Agatha manages to make enemies of just about everyone and her frequent disparagement of friends and neighbours alike is tiring.

Unlike the TV version where the title character is a scatterbrain, this adaptation of the book has Agatha disregard authority continually and rudely which detracts from the enjoyment of the storyline.

Enjoyed a lot

This was really well done. Cast were great and the storylines. There was humor along with the mysteries.
