9780006499602: Miss Marple Omnibus: Volume Two (Miss Marple)

Another four of Agatha Christie’s twelve, celebrated Miss Marple novels in a single volume, bound in the stylish livery of the new series.

A Caribbean Mystery
As Miss Marple dozes in the West Indian sun, an old soldier talks of elephant shooting and scandals. Then he dies – shortly after offering to show her a picture of a murderer. It’s not long before the deceptively frail detective finds herself investigating a most exotic murder…

A Pocket Full of Rye
Rex Fortescue, ‘king’ of a financial empire, was in his counting house; his ‘queen’ was in the parlour…and that’s exactly where they were when they died. There are baffling similarities between the rhyme and the crime and it takes all Miss Marple’s ingenuity to find them…

The Mirror Crack’d from Side to Side
Marina Gregg, the famous actress, witnesses a murder in her country home. But what gave her the expression of frozen terror that only Dolly Bantry saw? Dolly, of course, knows just who can find out: her old friend Miss Marple…

They Do It With Mirrors
To fulfil a promise to an old schoolfriend, Miss Marple stays in a country house – with 200 juvenile delinquents and seven heirs to an old lady’s fortune. One of them is a murderer – with, it seems, a talent for being in two places at once…

Review:

‘Throws off false clues and misleading events as only a master of the art can do’

From the Back Cover:

'a caribbean mystery'
It seems nothing will stem Major Palgrave's tiresome stories – except his untimely death. Could it be coincidence that just before he died he was about to show Miss Marple a photograph of a murderer? Or that he was about to hand the snapshot over something, or someone, caught his eye and made him turn pale and change the subject? Miss Marple thinks not…

'a pocket full of rye'
Rex Fortesque, 'king' of financial empire, was in his counting house; his 'queen' was in her parlour – when both ingested lethal qualities of deadly poison. The clues to these ruthless murders demonstrate terrifying similarities between the rhyme and the crime, and it will take all of Miss Marple's ingenuity to find them…

'the mirror crack'd from side to side'
Marina Gregg, the famous actress, witnesses a murder in her new country home – but only Dolly Bantry witnesses the look of absolute horror on Marina's face. Dolly describes it to Jane Marple, as the look of 'The Lady of Shallot' as she cries ''The doom has come upon me'' – but Miss Marple wonders exactly whose doom Marina has foreseen…

'they do it with mirrors'
To fulfil a promise to an old schoolfriend, Miss Marple stays in an old country house – with 200 juvenile delinquents and seven heirs to an old lady's fortune. One of them is a murderer – with a talent, it seems, for being in two places at once…
