8 short stories, the first 6 of which are classic Miss Marple. Very enjoyable! The last two are slightly eerie and don't feature Miss Marple at all. ( )

An anthology of short stories published many years before they were collected. Furthermore, two of the eight stories are tales of the supernatural, which have nothing to do with Miss Marple so the whole package is misleading. Despite these reservations, it makes a diverting read. ( )
  TheoClarke | Oct 29, 2009 |
Collection of short stories, mostly featuring Miss Marple and not previously published in the UK. Miss Marple applies her brain to various problems, not all of them murder - she helps a young couple find their inheritance. There are a couple of Gothic short stories at the end - 'A Dressmaker's Doll' is particularly creepy. A fine book on which to end the Marple series. ( )
