Nothing ever happens in the peaceful village of St Mary Mead. So it seems almost incredible when Colonel Protheroe is discovered shot through the head in the vicarage study. Unfortunately for the murderer, there is someone in the village who knows everything, sees everything and hears everything - and she intends to work out who killed the Colonel. Her name is Miss Marple! The Murder at the Vicarage was the book that introduced Miss Marple to the world. Loosely based on Agatha Christie's own grandmother, this charming but suspicious old lady was to become the world's most famous amateur sleuth, and is brought to life in this graphic adaptation by the artist Norbert Morandiere, known internationally as 'Norma'. Famed for her crime masterpieces, Agatha Christie's books have become the best-selling in the world, appealing to readers young and old for their ingenious plots and immediately recognizable characters. The stories have also transcended the printed page, become bestselling audiobooks and award-winning films, plays and television series. Now words and pictures combine in an exciting new way of telling these stories - full-colour graphic novels which enhance the original stories and offer a completely new way of enjoying some of the world's most popular and exciting mysteries.Read Less

Publishers Weekly, 2009-07-27 James Saxon delivers a memorable and absolutely masterful performance of Christie's first Miss Marple mystery. When the wildly unpopular Colonel Protheroe is found murdered in the vicar's study, it seems that everyone-his unhappy wife, his daughter, a visiting artist, an embittered poacher, the vicar-has a motive in a mystery that confounds the authorities, consumes the village and can only be untangled by observations and deductions of our heroine: the elderly gossip-cum-sleuth Miss Marple. Saxon's artful and enthusiastic portrayal of a host of characters-male and female, guilty and innocent, young and old-will delight Christie fans, mystery lovers and anyone lucky enough to listen.
