Another favourite A.C. book for me. I have read it umpteen times and watched the miniseries with Joan Hickson also innumerable times. This is so good. If you read it the first time, you will see, it is not that easy to find out who the very cruel murderer is. Although of course, Miss Marple solves the case brilliantly. By contrast to many other crime novels by A.C., in this there is no romance. There is a touch of sadness to the whole book, as the murderer is the worst kind of human being and the solution of the case will bring a very kind person a great heartache. Not for nothing ends the book as follows: “The tears rose in Miss Marple’s eyes. Succeeding pity, there came anger – anger against a heartless killer.” Finally, a note on the narration: Joan Hickson was the perfect choice, nobody can hold a candle to her portrayal of Miss Marple. However, if you are a non-native speaker, you may encounter difficulties with understanding her: she sometimes reads very quickly and does not articulate very clearly.
