Oh, this is a good one Alright, before the internet gave birth to trolls there were the poison pen writers.What s that Lymstock is the quintessential definition of the peaceful English countryside just ask any of its inhabitants Everything is so utterly uneventful here, that one might be tempted to attribute its inhabitants main cause of death to boredom, rather than old age In other words the perfect place for Jerry Burton s rehabilitation needs Doctor s orders So when the first libel induced suicide happens, our hero is obviously first in line to flex his sleuthing muscles In true Agatha Christie fashi Lymstock is the quintessential definition of the peaceful English countryside just ask any of its inhabitants Everything is so utterly uneventful here, that one might be tempted to attribute its inhabitants main cause of death to boredom, rather than old age In other words the perfect place for Jerry Burton s rehabilitation needs Doctor s orders So when the first libel induced suicide happens, our hero is obviously first in line to flex his sleuthing muscles In true Agatha Christie fashion, we get one heck of a convoluted story, without too much action, but enough mystery to twist around even the most logical of us Or is it just me, who s never able to guess the criminal I especially enjoyed the grand reveal, when it turned out that I had never even suspected the culprit Now that s what good murder mysteries are made of.Yet with all its well crafted mysteries, wild speculation, and half way decent romantic subplots, my overall impression was still that of disappointment This was supposed to be a Miss Marple novel So why doesn t the lovable old lady make its appearance until the 80% mark Yes that s correct EIGHTY.EFFING.PERCENT Score 3 5 starsObjectively speaking, there s nothing too egregiously wrong here Except for the sudden flowery turn towards the end, but I m willing to give it a pass I have to, after finding myself shedding a tear or two at one point.As much as I feel cheated, I kind of suspect the fault may lie mostly at my feet I shouldn t have assumed stuff just because GR marks this book as being part of a series continues to sulk nonetheless Review of book 1 Murder at the VicarageReview of book 2 The Thirteen ProblemsReview of book 3 The Body in the Library A curious Miss Marple tale not least because of

arrive in the quite village of Lymstock only to find a series of anonymous letters spreading false accusations, including themselves with a letter stating that the brother and sister are really loversIt all comes to a head when Mrs Symmington body is found alongside a letter and poison, an inquest instantly rule the death as suicide.The idea of a poison pen letter is a great one and easily casts everyone as a suspect The air of suspicion not least with the gossiping notes added an off kilter feel about the village.I found the middle portion of the novel to lag slightly though.Marple herself feels tacked on at the end, I practically liked her scenes of summing up all the clues.The realisation that the solution was so obvious is why even the weaker Christie s are still a joy to

once I got over my disappointment that no elderly spinsters were going to appear and kick butt and take names The main characters in this story are Jerry and Joanna, a clever, funny brother and sister pair who come to the small village of Lymstock so Jerry can recover from some unnamed accident Then people start getting mean anonymous letters, a few bodies turn up, and Jerry gets involved trying to help I liked it My copy says that Christie thought this was one of her finest novels It was certainly funny in many parts and had a small romantic sub plot which was cute and unexpected A good read if you re an Agatha Christie fan Pros I liked the main character brother sister duo of Jerry and Joanna, and it was an interesting variation on the traditional poison pen mystery Most of the characters were less hateful than is often the case in Golden Age British mysteries, which made it a relaxing read for a sick day.Cons Why is this a Miss Marple mystery She hardly appears and there s no reason, in terms of the plot, that the case could not have been solved in exactly the same way by the police, who seemed competent I w Pros I liked the main character brother sister duo of Jerry and Joanna,

the fictional issue of murder inevitably occurring, they seem to be an awful combination of boredom and irritations How is it restful to have strangers dropping in at all hours, even before breakfast, and everyone prying and gossiping Second Agatha Christie book To remind myself There are so MANY Anyway, this was just okay Short read which I appreciated I didn t guess the killer right away I liked the dialoguethan the storyline I like how people are engaged with one another Miss Marple just kinda showed up to solve the story in the last 30 pages People in this small village are getting
