9780001055988: The Blue Geranium and Other Stories

Four Miss Marple short stories taken from The Thirteen Problems.

Sir Henry Clithering, ex-commissioner of Scotland Yard, is staying with his old friend Colonel and Mrs Bantry, who live near St Mary Mead.

“When I was down here last year we got into the habit of discussing unsolved mysteries… We each supplied a story to which we knew the answer, but nobody else did. It was supposed to be an exercise in deductive faculties – to see who could get nearest to the truth. We hardly realised that Miss Marple was playing; but we were very polite about it – didn’t want to hurt the old dear’s feelings. And now comes the cream of the jest. The old lady outdid us everytime!”

The Blue Geranium
The Four Suspects
The Companion
A Christmas Tragedy

And so it is decided to ask Miss Marple to dinner, and once again she proves that simply by observing human nature in the sleepy village of St Mary Mead, she is easily able to unravel the mysteries put forward by the other diners.

From the Back Cover:

READ BY JOAN HICKSON

When her friends from the Tuesday Night Club visit Miss Marple’s house the conversation often turns to unsolved crimes …

Four cases from the collection 'The Thirteen Problems', all of which confirm that in the sleepy village of St Mary Mead Miss Marple has observed enough about human nature to be more than a match for the most perspicacious investigator …

Read by Joan Hickson who played Miss Marple in the popular BBC television series.
