There is something about Agatha Christie that I truly enjoy. I intersperse these mysteries among my other reading so I don't become jaded. I liked the interplay between Miss Marple and a wealthy, old gentleman who helps her solve the murders. A man who plans to murder his wife kills the wrong woman and the plot begins to tangle from there. It's typical Miss Marple who observes so carefully and finally with a little help uncovers the murderer. I liked it.

This is one of my favorites of Agatha Christie. I like the play between Miss Marple and Mr Rafiel. This book is the precursor to Nemesis.
