Are foul deeds afoot when Agatha alights incognito at an ominous hotel far from Carsley? Or is her anonymity more to do with the desire to hide a truly calamitous hairdon't from the rest of the village? Where Raisin roams, foul deeds have a habit of following, and soon there's an unfortunate end for Wyckhaddon's local witch. With a local constabulary reluctant to remove Agatha from their list of suspects, Team Raisin arrive to help unravel the murderous misdeed.
