June Whitfield stars as the sharp-witted spinster sleuth in a BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation now available on audio.
Miss Marple is totally shocked to receive a letter from the recently deceased Mr Rafiel, an acquaintance she had met briefly on her travels.
The letter leaves instructions for Miss Marple, whom Mr Rafiel had recognised as a natural detective, to investigate a crime after his death.

Nemesis isn't one of Christie's great books, but the dramatisation makes this a nicely creepy experience. After the death of a friend, Miss Marple receives a legacy - on condition she agrees to unravel a mystery and set right an injustice. The only problem is that she doesn't know what she's investigating. June Whitfield as always does a great job portraying the fluffy-seeming spinster with the gimlet brain.
