Notes From Your Bookseller

There’s never a bad time for an Agatha Christie novel. And, lucky for us, the Christie estate is reissuing all the Miss Marple titles in a yearlong program. Jane Marple isn’t a detective by profession — however, we’re none the wiser because of her ability to always crack the case!

Now with a beautiful new series look, Agatha Christie’s first mystery to feature the beloved investigator Miss Marple—as a dead body in a clergyman’s study proves to the indomitable sleuth that no place, holy or otherwise, is a sanctuary from homicide.

Miss Marple encounters a compelling murder mystery in St. Mary Mead, where under the seemingly peaceful exterior of an English country village lurks intrigue, guilt, deception, and death.

Colonel Protheroe, local magistrate and overbearing landowner is the most detested man in the village. Everyone—even in the vicar—wishes he were dead. And very soon he is—shot in the head in the vicar’s own study. Faced with a surfeit of suspects, only the inscrutable Miss Marple can unravel the tangled web of clues that will lead to the unmasking of the killer.

What People are Saying About This

Charles Todd

“Agatha Christie taught me two things: that plotting mysteries was an art, and that a woman detective could be as strong a character as a male detective.”
