Described by her friend Dolly Bantry as ' the typical old maid of fiction', Miss Marple has lived almost her entire life in the sleepy hamlet of St Mary Mead. Yet, by observing village life she has gained an unparalleled insight into human nature - and used it to devasting effect. As her friend Sir Henry Clithering, the ex-Commissioner of Scotland Yard has been heard to say: 'She's just the finest detective God ever made.' - and many Agatha Christie fans would agree. Appearing for the first time in The Murder at The Vicarage (1930) her crime-fighting career spanned over forty years when she solved her final case in 1977 in Sleeping Murder. With every tale flawlessly plotted by the Queen of Crime herself, these short stories provide a feast for hardened Agatha Christie addicts as well as those who have grown to love the detective through her many film and television appearances.Read Less

This book was unusual in that Miss Marple was more of a catalyst than a heroine. But each story's solution hinged on just a few well chosen observations from her. A different presentation by Agatha Christie of her sleuth, but entertaining and a welcome addition to any armchair detectives library.

Before modern crime solving tech-it was about behavior, motive and opportunity! Sometimes they can be a little "dated" and there is a cultural difference, but there is also a wonderful glimpse into the past. Miss Marple has an amazing gift of recognizing trends in people and proves that sometimes wisdom comes with age and observation. I think that is why I enjoy the TV series-'The Mentalist' so much-he looks for small details and human nature.
