- Summary: A stunning omnibus that gathers together every short story featuring one of Agatha Christie's most famous creations, Miss Marple. Described by her friend Dolly Bantry as the typical old maid of fiction, Miss Marple has lived almost her entire life in the sleepy hamlet of St. Mary Mead. Yet, by observing village life she has gained an unparalleled insight into human nature - and used this incredible ability to ferret our murderers and solve crimes. As her friend Sir Henry Clithering, the ex-Commissioner of Scotland Yard has been heard to say, "She's just the finest detective God ever made".
