Miss Marple makes her debut as renowned arm chair sleuth,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Thirteen Problems (The Christie Collection) (Paperback)
Every Tuesday evening a group of intellectual elites meet to discusss unsolved crimes. Charitably they allow an old, frail and very innocent looking Miss Marple to join them as an after thought. I mean really what could she possibly know about crime from livingthe small 'uneventfull' village of St. Mary Mead. Crime after crime Miss Marple manages to outwit her superiors by use of her insightfull in-depth knowledge of human nature, which she claims, is universal. The plots of these thirteen crimes are so intricate that it is shame that they each make up just a short story. Nevertheless first class Christie led by a first class Miss Marple.
