Descriptions du produit

From Library Journal

Now that her ex-fiance has run off to Cyprus, Agatha decides that her Cotswold village is boring. She pursues her former intended, witnesses a murder in a disco, and sleuths once more. Another refreshing and delightful series addition.
Copyright 1997 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Kirkus Reviews

The marriage of expublic relations whiz Agatha Raisin to cold, enigmatic James Lacey, who lives next door to her retirement cottage in the Cotswold village of Carsely, has fallen through (Agatha Raisin and the Murderous Marriage, 1996, etc.). James has taken off for Cyprus, the planned site of their aborted honeymoon, and Agatha, incomprehensibly, takes off after him. Soon after her arrival, on a day cruise in the harbor at Kyrenia, she meets an oddly mixed group of tourists--aristocratic Olivia Debenham, her broker husband George, and their older friend Harry Tembleton-- spending much of their time in the company of low-class, tarty Rose Wilcox, her hard-drinking husband Trevor, and their elderly friend Angus King. Agatha has tracked down James and, on a platonic basis, is sharing his rented house. They've joined the oddball group at a disco one night when Rose is stabbed to death and Agatha and James are detained and questioned by Detective Inspector Lyall Pamir. A second murder in the group arouses all of Agatha's detecting fervor. She gets background info on them from her policeman friend Bill Wong in England; escapes a couple of attacks on her own life; plays around a bit with vacationing long time acquaintance Sir Charles Fraith; and bemoans James's disappearance just as she solves the case. None of this nonsense can be taken seriously, least of all Agatha's obsession with the thoroughly off-putting James or plotting as full of holes as Swiss cheese. Only the author's blithe and breezy style and some interest in the historic sights of northern Cyprus could inspire most readers to stay the course. -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP.

Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Agatha part à la recherche de son grand amour qui a pris l'avion pour Chypre du nord côté turc. Et là Elle va le trouver mais aussi Charles et une bande d'anglais en vacances et des meurtres ...
Ce livre est plus sérieux et moins drôle que les autres de la série mais il est très bien ficelé etl'intrigue est très bien menée. On apprend beaucoup sur l'Histoire de Chypre .

un peu déçu par la collection, les intrigues sont peu développées par contre les histoires d'amour de l'héroine prennent toute la place, ce n'est pas ce que je cherchais.

Les enquêtes d'Agatha Raisin sont toujours divertissantes à lire. La langue est agréable et facile à comprendre... Celui-ci n'est pas mon favori sur la série, mais cela reste un très bon moment de lecture.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Tour of Murder 26 juin 2003
Par L Smith - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
In this 6th book in the Agatha Raisin series, Agatha decides to take a trip to Cyprus to track down one-time fiancé, James Lacey, who took off after their disastrous almost marriage. Instead of enjoying a romantic reunion with James, they witness a murder of a fellow tourist. Staying in their rented "honeymoon" cottage, Agatha and James work together to solve the murder, but not before the killer strikes again.
This book was harder to get into than several of the other in the series. Overall, this series is one of my favorites in the cozy genre, and I was a bit disappointed in this offering. Agatha is portrayed as desperate for James' affections, and although I like her vulnerability, I could easily see why James becomes annoyed with her. With that said, I would still highly recommend this book as a part of the series since it has a decent mystery and an interesting setting.
The first book in the series is "Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death". Enjoy!

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Was disappointed!!!! 2 avril 2001
Par Mac Blair - Publié sur Amazon.com

The story line is well explained above so will just commit on my thoughts. I did not enjoy this book as well as the others. Agatha and James move on to Cyprus and leave the friendly place of Carsely. I have come to like the local characters in Carsely and missed them being in the book. The conflict between Agatha and James is beginning to remind me of a "Soap" on TV and I don't like that. I also can do without Charles, he is a pain, in my openion. Hopefully Ms. Beaton will move the next book back to Carsely and the people I have come to like.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Terrible Tourists and a Rotten Sweetheart 8 août 2006
Par Dennis Phillips - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
When last we left Agatha she had solved the murder of her estranged husband whom she had assumed was already dead. Unfortunately for her he showed up very much alive just in time to stop her marriage to James Lacey and when he shortly turned up dead the authorities naturally looked to Agatha and James as their chief suspects. Agatha and James worked together to solve the case and it seemed that James just might forgive her until he took off alone for Cyprus, which was to have been their honeymoon trip.

Still lovesick, Agatha decides to follow James and hope that she will be able to find him. Find him she does but she also finds a group of terrible tourists that she can't stand. Somehow though she always seems to end up running into this group and is present when one of them is murdered. The local police consider Agatha, James and the entire party of English tourists suspects and to clear her name Agatha starts to snoop. In previous books from this series Agatha has basically bumbled around and sort of fell backwards into the solutions of the various mysteries, an observation, which James makes in this entry. This time however she actually uses her wits and solves the mystery on her own. I must admit that I was quite proud of the old girl.

This book is set almost entirely in Cyprus and has a much different feel than the earlier books, which are set in the English countryside. This is a much more rough and tumble and somewhat seedy tail. It is nonetheless very entertaining, as Agatha becomes a target herself, finds another body, sleeps with a character from a previous book and tours the ancient ruins of Cyprus. All of this while she is still chasing after James Lacey who really doesn't come across in this book as much of a gentleman or as much of a human being for that matter. I don't know what will come of Agatha and James' relationship in future books but as of now I have to agree with one of the characters in this book that she deserves better.

This entry in the Agatha Raisin series does lose some of the charm contained in the earlier books but I really liked the fact that Agatha solved the mystery on her own and did so in a way that would make Sherlock Holmes proud. Another plus is that the reader is clearly shown the clues and can solve the mystery the same way Agatha did but one has to pay very close attention. I must admit that I apparently didn't pay close enough attention but once Agatha named the culprit it all made perfect sense. Not bad I would say, not bad at all.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 --Murder in Cypress-- 30 janvier 2004
Par Judith Miller - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
Agatha Raisin who had retired to the quiet life in the Cotswold village of Carsley, is finding life to be very boring without the companionship of James Lacey. She's depressed because James, the love of her life has broken off their engagement. Of course, he had a good reason to do so, because Agatha had not told him the complete truth about her husband, Jimmy. She had led him to believe that Jimmy was dead, and both Agatha and James were shocked to have Jimmy appear at the start of their wedding. James is now in Cypress where he and Agatha were to be together on their honeymoon. Since Agatha is wildly aggressive and impulsive, she decides to follow James and try to rekindle their romance.
Agatha has some trouble in locating James, and to fill her time, she takes a cruise. On the ship she meets up with a rather odd assortment of English tourists. She also runs into Sir Charles Firth who seduces her and causes more conflict between Agatha and James. When one of the English tourists is killed, Agatha jumps in to investigate, and after a second murder takes place; it appears that the murderer is also after our Aggie, as Sir Charles likes to call her.
AGATHA RAISIN AND THE TERRIBLE TOURIST is a little different from the other stories in this series because it takes place in an exotic part of the world. I really enjoyed hearing about the history of Cypress. This is the sixth book in the Agatha Raisin stories.

Here she is again, the formidable and brash Agatha Raisin in an adventure that is remarkable as it is the first that takes her from her quaint Cotswold village to exotic northern Cyprus. This change of locale, however, is the only breath of truly fresh air in this current installment in the Agatha series. Having discovered both of M C Beaton's detective characters, it remains a suspicion of mine that the Hamish Macbeth character is more developed than dear Agatha. Though I am predisposed to enjoy Agatha's exploits, she remains unfortunately flat, two-dimensional.

The current novel is stock, the usual two or three bodies littering the narrative landscape and tidied up in the last 10 or 20 pages.

But I wonder if other fans like myself are aware of what may be the real unsolved mystery of the Agatha Raisin series: why on earth does Agatha (who, in agonizingly brief flashes of insight and personal honesty, knows Lacey is no good for her and that life with him would be hellish) persist in a predilection for James Lacey?

Though the Agatha series will undoubtedly remain disappointing in certain aspects, I will always anticipate the next novel of her exploits.
