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 a murderer he had known. Infuriatingly, just as he was about to show her a snapshot of this acquaintance, the Major was suddenly interrupted. A diversion that was to prove fatal.

Interesting tropical mystery
I'm not much of an edge-of-the-seat reader, but there were enough twists and turns to keep me interested, and I'll listen again to find nuances I missed.
I thought all of the women characters were pretty well performed, with the exception of Lucky. My favorite is Molly, simply because she was striving so hard against a variety of odds.
It was the perfect beach read.
