As Jane Marple sat basking in the tropical sunshine she felt mildly discontented with life. True, the warmth eased her rheumatism, but here in paradise nothing ever happened. Then a question was put to her by a stranger: ‘Would you like to see a picture of a murderer?’ Before she has a chance to answer, the man vanishes, only to be found dead the next day. The mysteries abound: Where is the picture? Why is the hotelier prone to nightmares? Why doesn’t the most talked-about guest, a reclusive millionaire, ever leave his room? And why is Miss Marple herself fearful for her life?

Of note: A Caribbean Mystery introduces the wealthy (and difficult) Mr Jason Rafiel, who will call upon Miss Marple for help in Nemesis (1971) — after his death.

Even so, as Christie entered her sunset years, the nature of her novels changed, often becoming less interesting for the complex plots that made her reputation than for a their chatty charm.Such is the case with 1964 A CARIBBEAN MYSTERY, which finds Christie revisiting her favorite…

Murder and Mayhem in the Caribbean This story is set in the Caribbean – quite an unusual setting for Miss Marple who usually prefers to stay close to home. A garrulous major talks about various crimes he has observed over the years and says he may have recognized a killer…the next day he is found dead and Miss Marple finds herself called upon to solve the crime. Notable for its beautiful locales as well as the interesting dialogue among the various characters, the most interesting of which is the interplay between Miss…

I was desperate for anything in English to read and resorted to my mother’s paperback mystery collection. I was so excited and intrigued by this story, that it started me on a Mystery book addiction, now going on 32 years worth of mystery reading.~ ~ – ~ ~ I…
