"A stunning omnibus that gathers together every short story featuring one of Agatha Christie's most famous creations, Miss Marple. 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 this incredible ability to ferret our murderers and solve crimes. 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" -- from publisher's website.

What a wonderful collection! The perfect way to read Agatha Christie in summer or any other season. Works for lunch hour reading.

Filled with interesting characters and twist-filled plots. You'll walk away loving Miss Marple.

Well worth the time!

This collection of short stories are wonderfully clever and surprisingly satisfying. And Miss Marple owes all of her crime solving skills to living simply and quietly in a village. So we all can live in hope. Her acumen is cleverly hidden by a fluff of white hair and knitting needles. This will become my disguise when I am a little old lady, if I can live up to such a shining example.

So many people seem to me not to be either bad or good, but simply, you know, very silly.

The art of writing gives one an insight into human nature. One sees perhaps motives that the ordinary person would pass by.

Wonderful collection of short stories. 20 in all. Many episodes stem from the Tuesday Night Club where Miss Marple and her associates try to identify how a crime is committed and who is responsible. Jane Marple of course, bests them all.
