Murder at the Vicarage marks the debut of Agatha Christie’s unflappable and much beloved female detective, Miss Jane Marple. With her gift for sniffing out the malevolent side of human nature, Miss Marple is led on her first case to a crime scene at the local vicarage. Colonel Protheroe, the magistrate whom everyone in town hates, has been shot through the head. No one heard the shot. There are no leads. Yet, everyone surrounding the vicarage seems to have a reason to want the Colonel dead. It is a race against the clock as Miss Marple sets out on the twisted trail of the mysterious killer without so much as a bit of help from the local police.

5.0 "The Murder At The Vicarage - Miss Marple #1" by Agatha Christie - Highly Recommended

I don’t feel the need to do an actual review for this one, so instead I’ll just say that Jane Marple is my favorite character that ever came out of Agatha Christie’s mind. As the good vicar said: If I were at any time to set out on a career of deceit, it would be of Miss Marple that I should be afr...

5.0 Our First Stand Alone Miss Marple Novel
The first Miss Marple mystery that showcases a different Miss Marple than the one I am used to. This one seems nosy and at times to have ill meanings/feelings. However, in the end we get to see our first glimpse of Nemesis in action with her wanting the person or persons responsible for the murder o...

5.0 The Murder at the Vicarage
I enjoyed this a lot! And my success at sussing out the murderer while reading Crooked House apparently was just dumb luck, because once again I was completely fooled as to who the murderer was.
