The Body In the Library (Miss Marple, Bk 3)
The Body In the Library - Miss Marple, Bk 3 Author:Agatha Christie The stately manor house known as Gossington Hall is not the place one expects to stumble over a dead body. Certainly not the body of a blonde in a tawdry dress. Definitely not a blonde who is discovered dead in the library. However, the corpse of a young blonde is definitely what was found by the maid early one morning in Colonel Bantry?s librar... more »y.
While Colonel Bantry seems stunned at the discovery, his wife Dolly knows just what to do and she immediately places a telephone call to her friend, Miss Jane Marple. Although Miss Marple appears to be a slightly nosy spinster, she is (rather like Agatha Christie herself) a Queen of Crime.
Hearing of the discovery of a corpse in the Bantry library, Miss Marple rushes to Gossington Hall. She arrives at the manor house even before the local constable can show up to secure the crime scene.
Miss Marple immediately senses that something just doesn?t look right. The blonde corpse is wearing a dress that is made of cheap fabric that makes the victim look like a floozy. Yet, the young woman?s nails are bitten short like a schoolgirl?s. It just doesn?t seem quite real somehow.
Miss Marple agrees to aid her friends and she and Dolly Bantry immediately set out to find out who the body is and why she was placed in such a compromising position at Gossington Hall. The villagers are already beginning to look at poor Colonel Bantry with more than a touch of suspicion, so time is of the essence.« less
