The placid village of Lymstock seems the perfect place for Jerry Burton to recuperate from his accident under the care of his sister, Joanna. But soon a series of vicious poison-pen letters destroys the village's quiet charm, eventually causing one recipient to commit suicide. The vicar, the doctor, the servants--all are on the verge of accusing one another when help arrives from an unexpected quarter. The vicar's houseguest happens to be none other than Jane Marple.

I liked that the detective didn't actually appear until nearly the end of the book. It made a nice change. This book had almost nothing wrong with it. The mystery was very well plotted, the characters were great, and the solution was satisfactory. A great mystery, not too long, if you're looking for one. Definitely recommend!

Keep in mind that Miss Marple only appears at the very end of this book--and solves the mystery. Yet, this is an excellent story, and I love the characters. Another big hit from the Queen of Mystery!

I don't normally read mystery but I enjoyed reading this book. Good book for an introduction to mystery.

Told from a disabled airman's perspective. Marple doesn't show up until the very end.

Jolly good read.
Something nice about Agather Christie, nothing too violent and yet all is not revealed till the last pages.
