Another Miss Marple to pass the time. This one was better than others because Jane Marple is actually a main character in the story. The body of a young blonde girl turns up in the library of the home of Colonel and Mrs. Bantry, good friends of Miss Marple's. No one knows who the dead girl is or how she got there.

So Miss Marple hits the scene, mostly because she knows that the gossip surrounding the murder will end up ruining the Bantrys, and that would never do. Also, she just hates it when people get away with wickedness. And really, who doesn't? So Miss Marple figures it out, nudges the police along and finally reveals whodunnit.

Did you know that Agatha Christie is the best selling novelist of ALL TIME? It's true. And I think Miss Jane Marple deserves some of the credit.
