From Publishers' Weekly:

In bestseller Beaton's terrific 21st Agatha Raisin mystery (after 2009's There Goes the Bride), the fiercely formidable private detective and her perky young protege, Toni Gilmour, look into the stabbing murder of John "Grudge" Sunday, a Mircester health and safety board officer, outside a joint meeting of two Cotswolds ladies' societies. The unpopular Sunday had put a pall on the holidays by stopping the annual custom of erecting a Christmas tree atop the Carsely church tower. Millionaire and prime suspect Miriam Courtney, who threatened to kill Sunday, hires Agatha to clear her name. Complications ensue after someone strikes Miriam a fatal blow to the head. Beaton, the pen name for Marion Chesney, does a brilliant job of depicting Agatha's struggles with aging and keeping her detective agency afloat. Her romantic upheavals (will she ever marry close friend Sir Charles Fraith?) continue to tantalize. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

When John Sunday of the Health and Safety Board declares that the village's traditional Christmas tree is a menance to public safety, he makes many enemies-even one who decides to kill him. This is the 21st entry (after There Goes the Bride) in Beaton's popular cozy series; purchase according to demand. (c) Copyright 2010.
