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.
Consistently good author, one of my favorites. I guessed wrong "whodunit" but thankfully Miss Marple did not. Nicely narrated too.
Agatha Christie is one of my favorit authors
A lot of her voicis was the same so that could have been better.
Her first conversation whith miss Temple
This is a sequel of sorts to A Carabean Mystery. Miss Marple is brilliant in her typical soft-spoken, elderly appearance. I would have loved to hear Joan Hickson read her parts but was very pleased with Emilia Fox.
This has to be the best Miss Marple mystery! And the audiobook is nice and long, revealing details at a pace the listener could keep up with.
I loved every minute!
Nemesis is my favorite Miss Marple, because it's particularly twisty and has the connection of another tale, A Caribbean Mystery's Jason Rafiel. The narrator is excellent and was actually in the Masterpiece episode of The Moving Finger. Excellent production.
I just can't listen to Emilia Fox narrating Miss Marple. After listening to the audiobooks that Joan Hickson narrated, as well as the radio plays, I could not get past Emilia Fox's performance. It's not often you get to be spoiled by having your personal, iconic Miss Marple acttress read the same stories, but we got lucky there, until now. EF cannot pull this off and it just ruined it for me. And the first instance of her doing a male voice, Mr. Rafael, is just grating, jarring, whatever you want to call it. That's when I hit pause and returned this book. Shame.
After catching an episode of Ms Marpel on PBS the other day. I deparately needed more if this wise old woman. This audiobook did not disappoint.
Agatha Christie has always been a favorite, and this series is so delightful to listen to.
