But all of that changes when one of the recipients, Mrs. Symmington, appears to have been driven to suicide. 'I can't go on,' her final note reads. Only Miss Marple questions the coroner's verdict.

Overview

Lymstock is a town with more than its share of shameful secrets -- a town where even a sudden outbreak of anonymous hate-mail causes only a minor stir. But all of that changes when one of the recipients, Mrs. Symmington, appears to have been driven to suicide. 'I can't go on,' her final note reads. Only Miss Marple questions the coroner's verdict. Was this the work of a poison pen? Or of a poisoner?

Editorial Reviews

Mary Jane Clark
“Agatha Christie is in a class by herself. For those of us who write mysteries, there’s no better muse, and for those of us who read them, no deeper pleasure.”
The Times (London)
“Beyond all doubt the puzzle in The Moving Finger is fit for experts.”

The Moving Finger, A Miss Marple Mystery 4.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 13 reviews.

Good mystery story. However, you see and hear very little about or from Miss Marple. She isn't even mentioned until page 116. Then disappears for a chapter or two. She makes another brief appearance and once again disappears until the very end when she completely explains the entire mystery. Miss Marple really wasn't part of this story. It was as if she was just an add-on to explain the murders. It just seemed to fall a bit flat.

agatha christie at her best. Liked the idea of the mysterious letters showing up at people's houses and the secret cloak room hiding place. You don't know who the killer is til the end.

I dont know why one of the reviewers said this story was too romantic, I am so glad there is something I can read that isn't in your face sex, and Ms Christie never disappoints.
