The Body in the Library (Miss Marple, Bk 3)
The Body in the Library - Miss Marple, Bk 3 Author:Agatha Christie The body of a beautiful blonde is found in the library of Gossington Hall. What the young woman was doing in the quiet village of St. Mary Mead is precisely what Jane Marple means to find out. Amid rumors of scandal, Miss Marple baits a clever trap to catch a ruthless killer
In my opinion, one of the better Miss Marples. Not too many suspects to bog it down and an easy to follow investigation that gives you plenty of opportunity to form your own hypothesis on who-dunit (isn't that what makes Christie novels so much fun?). Jane Marple stays out of the way most of the time so don't expect too many scenes with her.
