Review

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

From the Back Cover

'four of agatha christie's twelve miss marple novels in a single volume'

'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…

Format: Paperback
This collection of Miss Marple mysteries is excellent. Agatha Christie is at her very best with them. I could not put the book down until I had finished all the stories which made for a very enjoyable weekend. Each story is superbly crafted and, if like me, you always see the characters and action unfold in your imagination then you will not be disappointed.

didn't realise these bumper editions existed until i saw them on amazon - so was delighted to be able to buy all 3 volumes - ALL the complete novels of Miss Marple - and the original stories - without ITV completely ruining the plots - and they just go to show how fantastically faithful the BBC adaptations were!

5.0 out of 5 stars More Good Christie 6 Aug. 2016
By felicitaz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Curiously, I found the "likeable" characters in "Caribbean Mystery" less likeable than the "unlikable" characters in "Pocket Full of Rye", which to date is my favorite of the novels in this Omnibus volume. The characters are interesting and complex, and the dialogue lively. Highly recommended.

Miss Marple is my favorite Agatha Christie character and these stories are why. A small, little old lady with sparkling blue eyes and a mind like a steel trap.
