When the Bantrys wake to find the body of a beautiful, young stranger in their library. Dolly Bantry knows there’s only one person to call: her old friend Miss Marple.
Who was the young girl? What was she doing in the library? And is there a connection with another dead girl, whose charred remains are discovered in an abandoned quarry?
Miss Marple must solve the mystery, before tongues start to wag, and the murderer strikes again.
After reading 4:50 from Paddington, I was expecting much more from this one, but unfortunately it’s not as good as other Christie’s books. It was a quick read and I guess that was the only good thing about it. As I’m planning to read all the books in Miss Marple series, I really hope that the rest of the books are better than this one.
Personally I won’t recommend it to anyone. This book is definitely not for me!You can read this review at Goodreads.
