Miss Marple, Agatha Christie's deceptively mild spinster sleuth, is being treated to a few days' holiday by her niece, staying at Bertram's Hotel, a dignified, unostentatious establishment tucked away in a back street of busy Mayfair.

Here is a place where sedate upper class ladies, retired military gentlemen and the higher echelons of the clergy can indulge in the comforts of a bygone age. But Miss Marple begins to feel uneasy. Something sinister lurks beneath the polished veneer. Why are so many major crimes associated in some way with the hotel or somehow implicate eminently respectable people staying there?

June Whitfield stars as Miss Marple in this BBC Radio 4 dramatisation of a classic brain-teaser from the Queen of Crime.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea Walker | 2/14/2014

    " This is the 11th Miss Marple, and I have to say that I don't think very highly of it. The story has fantastic potential, with plenty of sub-plots and sub-sub-plots to keep you confused and unsure what's significant and what's not. Like much of Agatha Christie, it relies heavily on a fair amount of coincidence, which tends to annoy me. Unfortunately, this book simply does not live up to what one expects. The execution is poor and the pacing is problematic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Faye | 1/23/2014

    " As always, I love Agatha Christie. This one was a Miss Marple mystery. I was a little disappointed that the story line followed the policeman investigating the crime a lot more than Miss Marple herself. Still enjoyed it though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tali | 1/15/2014

    " Really disappointed by this book, especially after just having read the great Cat Amongst the Pigeons. This mystery just moved too slowly, and although the clues were built up carefully throughout the novel, the end product of the murder and the revelation was just lacklustre and incomplete. Not a bad read, but not really a good one either. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aniko | 12/31/2013

    " not quite the classic Miss Marple mystery (so the label on the cover is misleading), and in many ways unusual for Agatha Christie. was a little disappointed, to be honest. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emma | 12/22/2013

    " My guess is that I really liked this book because Miss Marple is in a quintessential English hotel and has high tea and cakes. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Narnia | 12/20/2013

    " Not interesting, nor exciting. Everything was rather obvious so no surprises or fun sleuthing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gail | 12/16/2013

    " This was my least favorite Miss Marple book and I have now read them all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kirk Dilley | 11/30/2013

    " To some, its better to burn out than fade away. They shouldn't always be center stage, however. Good exploration of what becomes of innocence left idle. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 11/12/2013

    " At Betram's Hotel is my all time favourite of the Miss Marple mysteries. I enjoy the complex layers, the overall plot, and the themes of change and progress. Christie's Miss Marple series does not need to be read in order to enjoy, although I prefer reading them in order. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Big Shell | 9/18/2013

    " Exactly one would expect from Christie. Rambly, specific, convoluted; but gripping and satisfactory and just delightful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jordan Shaw | 8/29/2013

    " the greatest hotel, with the most most blood curdling murder for Miss Marple to solve "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sylvia | 8/16/2013

    " I love a good Agatha Christie mystery. Miss Marple has become a recent favorite. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maureen | 8/9/2012

    " The lesson I learned from this book is: you change or you die. One of the great lessons of life, delivered by Agatha Christie via kindly, flinty, Jane Marple. I have read waaaaay more Christie books than I will ever admit to, but of them all, this is my favorite. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 6/3/2012

    " After reading few Agatha Christie's mystery stories I think she wrote intelligent mystery stories for masses. Maybe the detctive isn't a policeman (who can be a represenattive of all society classes), but small, round and wealthy Belgian. Rather nice read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chocolaa | 11/15/2011

    " My least favorite for agatha so far..I enjoy miss Marple's mysteries but this one wasn't that good.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gabriel Mero | 11/4/2011

    " True to Agatha Christie, this novel is full of twists and turns and the murderer's identity does not become apparent until the very last page. Love it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 5/12/2011

    " I reread this after watching the TV production with Geraldine McKewan. Any resemblance between the two stories is remote, setting and some of the characters. The original is better by far. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chavonne | 5/4/2011

    " Boring and predictable, sadly. I love Miss Marple and wish she'd been written as well as Poirot. I do love the descriptions of the hotel, though! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 4/23/2011

    " The best of the Miss Marple books, which I much prefer to the Poirot series. I totally missed all the clues and followed the red herrings. The ending was genius. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristen | 2/6/2011

    " Not my favorite Christie novel so far, but still a quick and fun read. Remembering that this was early in her career. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zach | 2/2/2011

    " If you like Miss Marple's mysteries, you'll love "At Bertram's Hotel." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caren | 1/10/2011

    " I love Ms. Christie! No matter how many times I read her, I am still amazed at how she keeps me in the dark :0)
    I even go back and look for the clues she put right in front of me, but I never seem to catch them or the "culprit". She will always get at least 4 stars from me!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hana | 1/8/2011

    " I read a lot of her books. I don't think I will add them all. I watched all of the TV episodes too. She wrote the best criminal books... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sylvia | 11/29/2010

    " I love a good Agatha Christie mystery. Miss Marple has become a recent favorite. "
