Eh. It felt very careless. Agatha, through Miss Marple, meditates on life changing and people remaining the same. The characters are generally irritating without being interesting, and the mystery isn't solved nearly as tidily as usually. This is her decline? Or maybe this was one mess of a novel and the next will have been more sharply edited. It's all sad now I'm down to the last 10 and have started enjoying free-and-easy old-lady Agatha. The difference between relaxed and sloppy is very fine, and very crucial.
