Dishing the Dirt

Dishing the Dirt

A therapist had moved into the village of Carsely and Agatha Raisin hates her. Not only was this therapist, Jill Davent, romancing Agatha's ex-husband, but she had dug up details of Agatha's slum background.

Added to that, Jill was counselling a woman called Gwen Simple from Winter Parva and Agatha firmly believed Gwen to have assisted her son in some grisly murders, although has no proof she had done so.

A resentment is different from a dislike and needs to be shared, so as the friendship between James and Jill grows stronger, the more Agatha does to try to find out all she can about her. When Jill is found strangled to death in her office two days' later, Agatha finds herself under suspicion - and must fight to clear her name.

  • Belinda

    Here's the thing. I know these books aren't good books. There is no character development at all - the characters are exactly the same in every single book. The body count is ridiculous - I think abou...

    I'm conflicted, I am so fond of the sassy Agatha Raisin, this is my 26th adventure with her after all. Unfortunately, I found this one rather disappointing. Sooo many murders, and so many characters w...

    Whoa! Talk about ‘let the bodies hit the floor!’ I think this book averaged out one corpse per chapter! To be honest, I’d’ve rated this one higher if the author wasn’t letting her ignorant S...

    Once upon about 12-13 years ago, I stumbled upon an Agatha Raisin audio book, the very first book in the series of which Dishing the Dirt is #26. Since that time, I have read or listened with pleasure...

    I keep promising myself never to read another Agatha Raisin novel again, but a friend gave me this one, so I just had to read it, didn't I?! The last 5 or 6 novels in the series seemed to me to be ove...

  • Pattie Tierney

    I have always been a little bit in love with Sir Charles Fraith. After reading this book, I am completely enamored by him. Sure he has his faults, lots of them, but then so does Aggie, and she is darn...

  • Carol

    My husband warned me I would hate this book. It started off well enough, but became very disjointed with multiple points of view for no apparent reason. It was also sloppy -- on one page a character w...

  • Una Tiers

    Beaton does a nice job of bringing in the regulars with brief descriptions. This book is stronger that the last several books and has several differences: everyone is nasty, ravens are all over the bo...

    Predictable and repetitive but I just can't stop myself from reading them!! :)...

  • Leslie W

    It is a sickness really, sticking with an author and a series well past the point of both their primes. Why do i do this?! Please give me those four days of my life back....
