Here are six gripping cases with one thing in common: the astonishing deductive powers of Miss Marple.

These stories are evocative of Agatha Christie's general style. They are read by Joan Hickson - the best Marple - from the 1980s TV series. The stories are a light-hearted romp through different times read by a person who made the character her own; an actress from the old school who knows how to use her voice to best effect.
Final cases rates about fourth, after two similar Poirot collections and a similar Miss Marple collection.
The narration, and the plot twist endings.
I have listened to several of her performances, and I love the way she can make each character distinctive. This is about the level of other performances I have heard.
"Good stories, but Joan Hickson only narrates some"
I bought this book because of the narrator. In my mind, Joan Hickson is Miss Marple. Therefore, I enjoyed most of the short stories, but was a bit dissapointed, when I found out that the last two were narrated by a different actress. Not that she was bad, it just wasn't the same.
