In utter disbelief, Miss Marple read the letter addressed to her from the recently deceased Mr. Rafiel—an acquaintance she had met briefly on her travels. He had left instructions for her to investigate a crime after his death. The only problem was, he had failed to tell her who was involved or where and when the crime had been committed. It was most intriguing. Soon she is faced with a new crime—the ultimate crime—murder. It seems someone is adamant that past evils remained buried. . . .

This was another solid mystery. I really love Miss Marple. I think she is absolutely adorable and also sharp as a tack, and it is great fun to watch everyone underestimate her while she ties knots around them. Watching her start to really feel and sound old in this novel was very hard, though. I a...
I have already read Sleeping Murder so for me Nemesis is my last Miss Marple mystery. I am saddened by that a great deal but Nemesis ended up being just a four star read for me which was very disappointing to me after reading and loving "A Caribbean Mystery" and "At Betram's Hotel".Nemesis has Miss ...
