I think this is the first Miss Marple mystery. I wish she was not so often described as helpless or old when she obviously is smarter than many of the other residents. I read this many years ago and didn't remember the ending so I enjoyed reading it again... a classic example of Christie's plot and psychological twisting.

This is the first Christie novel to feature Miss Marple, a lovely old women who has insight into the character of those around her and uses it to solve murders. The novel was written in 1930.

Typical to Agatha Christie, there isn't a lot of action, and the first mention of the murder is half-way through the book. Good for a long read.

I think this was a fantastic book. Some of the English is old fashioned, which make some parts hard to understand.Other than that this book was a terrific, thrilling mystery.
