A stunningly repackaged omnibus, gathering together every short story featuring one of Agatha Christie's most famous creations: Miss Marple. Described by her friend Dolly Bantry as ' the typical old maid of fiction', Miss Marple has lived almost her entire life in the sleepy hamlet of St Mary Mead. Yet, by observing village life she has gained an unparalleled insight into human nature - and used it to devasting effect. As her friend Sir Henry Clithering, the ex-Commissioner of Scotland Yard has been heard to say: 'She's just the finest detective God ever made.' - and many Agatha Christie fans would agree. Appearing for the first time in The Murder at The Vicarage (1930) her crime-fighting career spanned over forty years when she solved her final case in 1977 in Sleeping Murder. With every tale flawlessly plotted by the Queen of Crime herself, these short stories provide a feast for hardened Agatha Christie addicts as well as those who have grown to love the detective through her many film and television appearances.

3.5 Miss Marple: The Complete Stories by Agatha Christie
It looks like this collection contains all of the stories from The Thirteen Problems as well as some additional stories. I think Miss Marple lends herself well to the short story format, although I didn't enjoy the later stories quite as much as the earlier ones. Overall they were pretty good though...

4.0 Miss Marple: The Complete Short Stories
This collection was pretty much a hit with me. There are only a few stories that I felt okay to meh about and so I gave the entire book 4 stars. If you don't know Miss Marple by now, I don't suggest you start with this collection. What I do like though is that Miss Marple is a lot more endearing in ...
