As Miss Marple sat basking in the Caribbean sunshine, she felt mildly discontented with life. True, the warmth eased her rheumatism, but here in paradise nothing ever happened. Eventually, her interest was aroused by an old soldier's yarn about strange coincidence. Infuriatingly, just as he was about to show her an astonishing photograph, the Major's attention wandered. He never did finish the story... June Whitfield stars as the sharp-witted spinster sleuth in a BBC full-cast radio drama.

This was a great read and I found myself reading it a second time in order to savor the mastery of the plot and the sheer brilliance of Miss Marple. The locale is exotic which is unusual for Marple novels and it made for a great change of pace. The characters are well fleshed out and never dull. I highly recommend reading it but give A Murder Is Announced a whirl before diving into this one as it is referred to in the novel.

Going on holiday in the tropics, Miss Marple finds herself bored to death. At least until a murder occurs! And with the clues piling up, the body count does as well. But she will have to go back to the first crime and try and remember her reason for boredom in order to catch a killer. This novel doesn't disappoint even an avid fan like myself.
