Miss Marple: The Complete Short Stories, Hardcover
This collection 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 it to devastating effect. 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""--and many Agatha Christie fans would agree.
