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.

3.0 The Murder at the Vicarage: A Miss Marple Mystery by Agatha Christie (audio)
I'm giving it a 3 because I didn't hate it and I didn't love it and because I can. I’ve never read an Agatha Christie novel. There, it has been said. I received this audio free from the SYNC summer reading program last year. Apparently it’s the first book in a series. Yay SYNC. I usually pick up...

5.0 The Murder at the Vicarage

Each story and crime made up of interlocking events, motives and clues, all combining by the end into a finished ...
