A missing body baffles the police, but not Miss Marple Poor Dame Agatha! When she started writing her mysteries in the 1920’s she had no idea that she would still be cranking them out fifty years later. If she had, she wouldn’t have made her two detectives (Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple) so old to start with. On the other hand, she got to explore the advantages and disadvantages of old age in a way not often found in mystery novels.

4 50 from Paddington is a tense and suspensful Miss Marple murder myster by Dame Agatha Christie the Queen of Murder! Instead of taking the night train to Memphis the elderly Mrs McGillicuddy took the 450 from Paddington. Suddenly a train running parallel to her train reveals a murder in progress! A dark headed man is strangling to death a woman. Mrs M. returns home to report the foul deed to the local constables. She then tells the tale to Miss Marple the greatest old lady in all of English murder fiction. The story revolves around the dark secrets of a large old English family the Crackenthorpes who live…

An Engaging Mystery Chock Full of Characters I’ve never read much Agatha Christie, and don’t really know why. Now that I have a Kindle, I plan to stock up on this author whenever I see a good price ! According to the blurb at the end of the book, Christie is the “most widely published author of all time and in any language, outsold only by the Bible and Shakespeare.” That fact alone is proof that she has a universal appeal.
