9780006165330: Sleeping Murder (The Christie Collection)

Soon after Gwenda moved into her new home, odd things started to happen. Despite her best efforts to modernize the house, she only succeeded in dredging up its past. Worse, she felt an irrational sense of terror every time she climbed the stairs.

Review:

Miss Marple, almost as if she knew she wouldn't be around much longer, is her most self-effacing while she watches and warns quietly that "murder in retrospect" is the equivalent of sleeping murder which like those dogs should be let lie. However a young couple buy a house where just-married Gwenda has some deja-vu intimations of what took place their eighteen years ago and she and her husband look into the disappearance of her stepmother and the several men in her life that was. This is Miss Marple at her noticing, unobtrusive, kindly best - a perfect envoi. Dual Literary Guild selection for December in a two-in-one volume with The Murder at the Vicarage (which took place some time ago). (Kirkus Reviews)

From the Back Cover:

Soon after Gwenda moved into her new home, odd things started to happen. Despite her best efforts to modernise the house, she only succeeded in dredging up its past. Worse, she felt an irrational sense of terror every time she climbed the stairs…

In fear, Gwenda turned to Miss Marple to exorcise her ghosts. Between them, they were to solve a ‘perfect’ crime committed many years before.

Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. She wrote 80 crime mysteries and collections, and saw her work translated into more languages than Shakespeare. Her enduring success, enhanced by many film and TV adaptations, is a tribute to the timeless appeal of her characters and the unequalled ingenuity of her plots.

‘A puzzle that is tortuous, surprising and finally satisfying.’
SUNDAY EXPRESS
