In utter disbelief, Miss Marple read the letter addressed to her from the recently deceased Mr. Rafiel...an acquaintance she had met briefly on her travels. He had left instructions for her to investigate a crime after his death. The only problem was, he had failed to tell her who was involved or where and when the crime had been committed. It was most intriguing.
Soon she is faced with a new crime...the ultimate crime...murder. It seems someone is adamant that past evils remained buried....

This was so drawn out, with endless repetition of the slim facts and clues of this almost non-existent mystery. Almost no story, but the characters, as always in Agatha Christie, are fun. Great narration by Emilia Fox !
Very disappointing. The first Agatha Christie that I didn't enjoy.
Yes. I only buy audio books that I plan to listen to multiple times. This one was pretty well plotted, without the "hidden factors" that Christie sometimes relies upon. I enjoyed the fact that it involved a "solved" crime that had, in fact,not been solved at all.
Miss Marple is always a favorite character of mine. I love her mix of doddering little old lady and high mental acuity.
Miss Marple contemplating those white flowers in the garden, and her reaction to what they implied.
The reader had some obvious difficulty with the male voices, so they were occasionally distracting. Nonetheless, the book is a worthwhile "read".
