Book Description

20 May 2011

Coinciding with the major new TV series, this is the definitive companion to the MISS MARPLE novels, films and TV appearances.

‘I have had a lot of experience in solving different little problems that have arisen.’

Most of the ‘little problems’ tackled by Miss Marple occurred in the pretty rural village of St Mary Mead and came in the shape of murder, robbery and blackmail. In the 40 years of her career, she even solved cases as far afield as London and the Caribbean. But though she usually masqueraded as ‘everybody’s favourite great aunt’, what was she 'really' like?

In this authorised biography of the world’s most famous female sleuth, Anne Hart combs through the 12 novels and 20 short stories in which Miss Marple appeared, uncovering clue and amassing all the evidence to solve the most difficult case of them all – the mystery of Miss Marple.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Mystery of Miss Jane Marple 17 Jan 2005
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is only a short book, but Anne Hart has carefully combed all the Miss Marple novels and short stories to put together as clear a picture as possible of Agatha Christie's elderly Lady detective. Although the stories Miss Marple appears in are discussed, Hart doesn't give away the identity of the murderer or culprit, which is good to know if you've not read all the Miss Marple stories. All in all this is an excellent Miss Marple companion, which puts stories in a chronological order, provides a map of St Mary Mead and helps out with the characters who have appeared in some of the stories. My only tiny criticism is the few Americanisms in the book, which are a bit jarring. The book also provides a filmography of all the dramatisations based on Miss Marple that have appeared on screen and radio.
