Further details

After going on a date with village vet and heartthrob Paul Bladon, Agatha gets a shock when he shows up dead the next day - killed by a fatal dose of horse tranquilliser.

Unconvinced by claims he committed suicide, Agatha and James investigate and soon find that Agatha wasn't the only woman in the village to fall under the young vet's charms. Tapping into the village rumour they question former lovers, spurned husbands and even stud owner Lord Pendlebury. However, when a second murder occurs and Agatha starts to receive threatening letters, the stakes are upped.

Agatha refuses to be warned off the investigation. But pursuing a double murderer means throwing her life on the line, as she discovers when she comes face to face with the killer...
