“Jane Marple has an uncanny combination of elderly gentility and bedrock cynicism about human foibles learned by observing the mundane in everyday village life.” (Mary Daheim, USA Today bestselling author of the Bed-and-Breakfast mysteries)
“Throws off the false clues and misleading events as only a master of the art can do.” (New York Times)
“Liveliness....Infectious zest….As good as anything Miss Christie has done.” (The Observer)
From the Back Cover
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.

It was fun, and the interaction with Mr. Rafiel was great, makes me sad that this is the only time we meet him before his end in the last Marple. But, nothing really special, and I'll probably forget which of the couples holds the black widow by the time I get a hankering to work my way through some Christies again. Oh well, that's not such a bad thing, do enjoy sometimes being surprised by a book I've read before, even if it means that it was one of the more mediocre ones.

Book review -
Great story. This is one of my favorites (although you'll hear that about probably two thirds of the Agatha Christie novels that I review).
The puzzle is decent, the red herrings abound, and the characters are fun and interesting. If you are new to Agatha Christie the Miss Marple mysteries can have her as a main character or as a side note, basically working in the background. This one is actually as much about her, putting her in a new setting, making new friends, experiencing the world... basically taking her out of her comfort zone.
If you have not previously read any of her works I would recommend that you read one where the detective is the main character - whether it's Miss Marple or Poirot. The ones where they are incidental characters are not as satisfying if you are not familiar with their quirks and their methods.
