A fantastic Miss Marple, which has definitely improved for me on this reread. The mystery is wonderfully twisted and I´m still in awe how Miss Marple has been able to solve the murder. Miss Marple is amazing! And I particularly enjoyed that the vicar and his wife Griselda made an appearance as well ...

Colonel Bantry has found the strangled body of an exotic blonde bombshell lying on his library hearth - and the neighbors are beginning to talk! When Miss Marple takes an interest, though, things begin to move along nicely, and its all far more convoluted - and sordid - than the genteel Bantrys coul...

“What I feel is that if one has got to have a murder actually happening in one's house, one might as well enjoy it, if you know what I mean.” This is a Marple story, but I love the book nonetheless. The story follows the typical Christie formula - the impossible murder and a cast of suspects who...

A quick and fun novel to round out my 2017 reading. This cozy little mystery focuses on the psychology of the characters involved, including a few convincing red herrings that fooled me once again.

This is my first Miss Marple book and I was a wee disappointed that she wasn't in it more. I haven't read a "cozy" murder mystery in a really long time, if ever, and it was a lot slower than I am used it. It was really good though and I was quite surprised at the end when the murderer was revealed. ...

I´ve got to admit, I admire Miss Marple´s deductive skills. I wouldn´t be able to solve a single one of her cases (even if there were enough clues to work with). Sitting in a corner, knitting and listening and watching closely what´s going on around her, that how she does it. Yet with this book, I w...

Another theme of my summer reading this year: favorite older mysteries, and unread mysteries by Christie. This is one I'd never read. Before we can figure out whodunnit, we have to figure out whatthehellisthisbodydoinghere? Personal copy
