Publisher's Summary

In utter disbelief, Miss Marple read the letter addressed to her from the recently deceased Mr. Rafiel...an acquaintance she had met briefly on her travels. He had left instructions for her to investigate a crime after his death. The only problem was, he had failed to tell her who was involved or where and when the crime had been committed. It was most intriguing.

Soon she is faced with a new crime...the ultimate crime...murder. It seems someone is adamant that past evils remained buried....

Most Excellent!

I prefer Poirot mysteries but occasionally toss in a Miss Marple for a change.

For the most part, it typically feels like Miss Marple sits and observes and then pronounces but in this particular story she is up front and center and actively involved - and she has no idea even what she is supposed to be investigating, let alone who! This sort of gives the reader a sense of "we are in this together" as the story unfolds. Highly recommend.

Not Prime Time Miss Marple

What could Agatha Christie have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

This was so drawn out, with endless repetition of the slim facts and clues of this almost non-existent mystery. Almost no story, but the characters, as always in Agatha Christie, are fun. Great narration by Emilia Fox !

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Very disappointing. The first Agatha Christie that I didn't enjoy.

Good story, good narration.

Consistently good author, one of my favorites. I guessed wrong "whodunit" but thankfully Miss Marple did not. Nicely narrated too.

Excellent performance of a great Christie.

Excellent performance by Emilia Fox. Classic Christie murder mystery. I very much enjoyed listening. One of her better stories, I think.

Did not age well

There's a part of this book where a man talks about how women claim rape far too often these days and he implies that women shouldn't be believed. This book also criticizes working women and has several gross anti-women comments. Another Christie ruined with bigotry. :(

A little loud

Loved story, good performance if somewhat problematic while wearing earbuds. Volume very changable. Good for AChristie fans

Offensive Misogynist Ideas- Sexual Assault/Rape

I gave this a three because I liked the story. Christie is a good an interesting writer, but sometimes you just get tired of the racism, sexism, & classism. More than one set of characters voice the same sort of offensive views about rape. It's misogynist & victim blaming.

Christie doesn't disappoint!

I really enjoyed this story and Emilia Fox is pretty darn good with the voices for the characters!
Good story line although quite sad. I even really liked the follow up at the end!

Well-read, relaxing Miss Marple Mystery

Emilia Fox did a brilliant job performing/reading this book. I love Agatha Christie novels, and Miss Marple ones are usually great for a "cozy mystery." The usual twists and surprises are there. Loved it!
