Agatha Raisin's neighboring village of Ancombe is usually the picture of quiet English Cotswolds charm. Yet the arrival of a new mineral-water company, which intends to tap into the village spring, sends tempers flaring and divides the parish council into two stubborn camps. When Agatha, who happens to be the new PR person for the company, finds the council chairman at the basin of the spring, tongues start wagging. Could one of the council members have silenced the chairman before he could cast the deciding vote?

Village gossip takes on a life of its own and Agatha must weed her way through the council members' alibis, promote the water company, and try to resurrect her love life, all while pretending she is over her exfiance, James Lacey. This delightful seventh mystery featuring the pleasantly prickly Agatha Raisin and a cast of village eccentrics proves once again that no one writes a cozy mystery better than M.C. Beaton.

Too many murder suspects to keep track of, but still an enjoyable summer read.
