Agatha Raisin meets Sookie Stackhouse, with croquet and crumpets. An adventure with zombies. And vampires. And romance. And croquet.
Toni Windsor is trying to live a quiet life in the green and pleasant county of Staffordshire. She'd love to finally master the rules of croquet, acquire a decent boyfriend and make some commission as an estate agent...
...but first she's got to deal with zombies rising from their graves, vampires sneaking out of their coffins and a murder to solve.
It's all made rather more complicated by the fact that she's the one raising all the zombies--oh, and she's dating one of the vampires. Really, what's a girl meant to do?
