Her writing career spanned more than half a century, during which she wrote 79 novels and a short story collection, as well as 14 plays, one of which, The Mousetrap, is the longest running play in history.

    Very good

    I love rereading these wonderful stories and to have them in one e-book is great. Just wish there were more of them.

    I can never go wrong with an Agatha Christy

    I have been a fan of Agatha Christie for many years. I keep going back to her over and over again, whether I am reading one of her stories or watching on TV. Miss Marple in particular is one of my favorites. These stories are typical Jane Marple. You are dragged into the narrative and watch as Jane Marple slowly figures out the mystery kicking yourself for not noticing the solution yourself. They are a good late night read, because each chapter is a complete story unto itself. I already own the entire collection in hardcover, but the e-books are much easier to transport and pick up where I left off, cause I don't have to worry about the bookmark falling out.

    Wonderful Miss Marple!

    If you like Miss Marple, or even just a primer on deductive reasoning, you will enjoy this collection of short stories.
