9780007274604: The Murder at the Vicarage (Miss Marple)

Miss Marple’s first case is adapted into the first Miss Marple comic book in this long-awaited adaptation of one of Agatha Christie’s most famous novels.

Nothing ever happens in the peaceful village of St Mary Mead. So it seems almost incredible when Colonel Protheroe is discovered shot through the head in the vicarage study. Unfortunately for the murderer, there is someone in the village who knows everything, sees everything and hears everything - and she intends to work out who killed the Colonel. Her name is Miss Marple!

The Murder at the Vicarage was the book that introduced Miss Marple to the world. Loosely based on Agatha Christie's own grandmother, this charming but suspicious old lady was to become the world's most famous amateur sleuth, and is brought to life in this graphic adaptation by the artist Norbert Morandière, known internationally as 'Norma'.

Famed for her crime masterpieces, Agatha Christie’s books have become the best-selling in the world, appealing to readers young and old for their ingenious plots and immediately recognizable characters. The stories have also transcended the printed page, become bestselling audiobooks and award-winning films, plays and television series. Now words and pictures combine in an exciting new way of telling these stories – full-colour graphic novels which enhance the original stories and offer a completely new way of enjoying some of the world’s most popular and exciting mysteries.

Review:

"Any book by Agatha Christie attracts attention but when she really hits her stride, as she dies in Murder at the Vicarage, she is hard to surpass." -Saturday Review of Literature

Book Description:

It’s a historic event in detective fiction as the unflappable sleuth’s passion for gossip – and cheerful recognition of the worst side of human nature – leads her to a crime scene at the local vicarage. Colonel Protheroe, St. Mary Mead’s most loathed magistrate, has been found shot through the head. But it isn’t the “pompous old brute’s” murder that raises eyebrows, but rather the scandalous secrets it exposes. Those secrets are about to put St. Mary Mead on the map – and send Miss Marple on the trail of a killer with something to hide.
