"Miss Marple was an old lady now, knowing that a scent for evil was still, in the evening of her days, her peculiar gift."--Times Literary Supplement (London)From the Back Cover:
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.
Recognising in Miss Marple a natural flair for justice, Mr Rafiel 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.
WHEN IT CAME TO SOLVING MYSTERIES, JUSTICE WAS REWARD ENOUGH FOR MISS MARPLE
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.
