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 strange coincidence.

Infuriatingly, just as he was about to show her an astonishing photograph, the Major's attention wandered. He never did finish the story.... June Whitfield stars as the sharp-witted spinster sleuth in a BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation.

Listener Opinions

    " Very good characters, but for the first time, I felt like this was too easy to solve. Often I have a hint of who the murderer is, or I'm halfway right in my suspicions--this one was too obvious. But the idea of Miss Marple being involved from beginning to end and having to employ allies (notably Mr. Rafiel, who is a great character) because she's too frail, was intereating and real. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dana | 2/15/2014

    " Its a classic Miss Marple mystery. My favorite part of the book was a conversation between Miss Marple and Mr. Rafiel on pg 144 'Life is more worth living, more full of interest when you are likely to lose it. ... When you're young and strong and healthy, and life stretches ahead of you, living isn't really important at all. ... But old people know how valuable life is and how interesting.' "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 2/15/2014

    " Miss Marple is delightful as ever, although it must be noted that Dame Christie is incapable of writing characters of color in a non-offensive way. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joshua | 2/12/2014

    " Overall, not one of Christie's best, but suspect-obscuring clouds still hang heavy of this work. However, I managed to guess the murderer halfway through, for the first time ever in a Christie book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carrie | 2/6/2014

    " Great mystery for a cruise vacation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thomas | 1/28/2014

    " My first Miss Marple mystery, started slow but picked up with lots of twists and ended with a very surprising ending. I liked it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Noralisma | 1/10/2014

    " A briliant trick! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 1/9/2014

    " My favorite Agatha Christie book of all time! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vanessa | 1/9/2014

    " I have no idea why this took me so long to finish. It just didn't quite grab my attention like other Miss Marple books. I think I need an Agatha Christie break! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandra Strange | 1/2/2014

    " Good basic Christie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 12/15/2013

    " Whats to say? I love Miss Marple. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zach | 12/13/2013

    " This was a great Agatha Christie novel. This is one of the best Miss Marple books I've read. She is certainly the equal of Poirot. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Eileen | 11/19/2013

    " Now for a little light relief... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pia | 11/16/2013

    " Old, senile Woman, LOl. The murderer never saw her coming.............. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley FL | 7/11/2013

    " Miss Marple. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beka | 3/14/2013

    " One of my favorite Miss Marple stories. It takes so many twists and turns and the characters are great. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marjorie | 10/3/2012

    " Ok but not as good as some.....still entertaining, tho. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maddie | 8/26/2012

    " It was a good book if you like mystery or CSI! LOL "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Monica | 7/16/2012

    " This is VERY different from the Joan Hickson Miss Marple movie. I like the book far better because it really answers all the questions where the movie doesn't. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie | 11/30/2011

    " i really liked this book. i didn't want to stop reading it. it was that good and you would never guess why the caribbeans was such a mystery "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lotta | 10/29/2011

    " A very nice BBC version of a classic Agatha Christie whodunnit. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 6/13/2011

    " Love it!!! Couldn't put it down... you try to figure out the mystery but it's almost impossible to figure out yourself but at the end it all makes sence!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kivrin | 6/9/2011

    " I liked the characters in this one, and it took me a little longer to figure out the killer. I don't like it when it's too easy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeffrey | 5/28/2011

    " A delightful mystery featuring Miss Marple. I'm usually not fond of travel mysteries, but this one is the exception to the rule, giving us a spinster far from home, but in a familiar setting. The plot is fairly straight-forward and mixes multiple murders with a sunny clime. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chavonne | 5/4/2011

    " This is an okay Miss Marple mystery. It's not my least favorite of hers but definitely not the best. It's a bit predictable but still enjoyable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jen | 4/25/2011

    " def not one of her best mysteries... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicola | 3/30/2011

    " Mrs. Marple is my favorite Christie detective. I love the idea of a fussy old lady in the the thick of murder. She is so proper. Fun story. Great characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kay | 1/14/2011

    " As usual, Agatha Christie has written another good one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zach | 1/12/2011

    " This was a great Agatha Christie novel. This is one of the best Miss Marple books I've read. She is certainly the equal of Poirot. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 4cats | 12/7/2010

    " not one of her best, okay, has to be read in the moment rather than with a 21st century brain, if that makes sense. "
