Description
A stunning omnibus that gathers together every short story featuring one of Agatha Christie's most famous creations, Miss Marple. Described by her friend Dolly Bantry as the typical old maid of fiction, Miss Marple has lived almost her entire life in the sleepy hamlet of St. Mary Mead. Yet, by observing village life she has gained an unparalleled insight into human nature -- and used this incredible ability to ferret our murderers and solve crimes. As her friend Sir Henry Clithering, the ex-Commissioner of Scotland Yard has been heard to say, She's just the finest detective God ever made.

Appearing for the first time in The Murder at the Vicarage, Miss Marple's crime-fighting career spanned over forty years. With every tale flawlessly plotted by the Queen of Crime herself, these short stories provide a feast for Agatha Christie fans -- and readers who simply love a good story.

Fans of the amiable, omniscient Miss Marple will be delighted. - Publishers Weekly

One of the greatest female sleuths of all time. - The Chicago Observer
