Agatha has her eye on the local gardener, George Marston, but so do other women in their little Cotswold village. When George doesn't even show up for a date, Agatha goes looking for him, and finds his dead body in a compost heap. Rising to the occasion, Agatha rallies her little detective agency to find the killer, only to learn that George had quite a complicated love life. But murderously complicated? Well, if she can't have George, at least Agatha can have the satisfaction of confronting the other women and solving the crime.
