An exotic holiday for Miss Marple is ruined when a retired major is killed…
As Jane Marple sat basking in the Caribbean sunshine she felt mildly discontented with life. True, the warmth eased her rheumatism, but here in paradise nothing ever happened.
Eventually, her interest was aroused by an old soldier’s yarn about a strange coincidence. Infuriatingly, just as he was about to show her an astonishing photograph, the Major’s attention wandered. He never did finished the story…
The puzzle is decent, the red herrings abound, and the characters are fun and interesting. If you are new to Agatha Christie the Miss Marple mysteries can have her as a main character or as a side note, basically working in the background. This one is actually as much about her, putting her in a new setting, making new friends, experiencing the world... basically taking her out of her comfort zone.
