The first Miss Marple mystery, one which tests all her powers of observation and deduction.
“Anyone who murdered Colonel Protheroe,” declared the parson, brandishing a carving knife above a joint of roast beef, “would be doing the world at large a favor!”
It was a careless remark for a man of the cloth. And one which was to come back and haunt the clergyman just a few hours later—when the Colonel is found shot dead in the clergyman’s study. But as Miss Marple soon discovers, the whole village seems to have had a motive to kill Colonel Protheroe.

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...
I enjoyed reading this. What a well done mystery! This book made me laugh a lot, something I didn't expect. The Vicar was a great narrator, and I enjoyed these characters. I didn't figure out who did it, and after reading the denouement, I never would have. I think I had suspected everyone at...
I had trouble getting into this one. It's different from anything I've read (not a surprise) and it really threw me off that none of it is in Miss Marple's POV. I didn't even try to guess who the killer was, since every time I thought I had it figured out, I was wrong. I just gave up after a w...
