A classic Marple mystery, read by Emilia Fox.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.Recognising in Miss Marple a natural flair for justice, Mr Rafiel 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.

"The acknowledged queen of detective fiction." (Observer)
Really appalling amounts of victim blaming. I mean I know its an old book, from the point of view of even older people but theres some really shocking sentiments from quite a few men in the story. This is just a warning because it took me badly by surprise.
Its still one of the better Mrs Marple stories, and one of the few I've come across that actually deals with her perspective. She can be such an all-knowing all-seeing background character in some books its nice to see her stumped.
