I was completely blindsided by that one. Took off a star because I couldn't keep people straight... which is probably one of the reasons the solution crept up on me like that. ( )

Another entertaining mystery! Makes we want to read more of Miss Marple particularly-- I wish Bunch was her sidekick in more mysteries, but I take it that's not the case.

I would definitely recommend the audiobook-- Emilia Fox's voices for the characters were superb, particularly Bunch, Mrs. Easterbrook, and Patrick, and everyone was differentiated nicely. ( )

This is another of my re-reads, so I can contribute to a book discussion on the first 5 or 6 Miss Marple novels. While Jane Marple was introduced in a set of short stories in the late 1920s, the first novels were spaced well apart.

THE MURDER AT THE VICARAGE 1930
THE BODY IN THE LIBRARY 1942
THE MOVING FINGER 1943
A MURDER IS ANNOUNCED 1950

The last in that list seems to be placed just after World War II has ended, and there is even thought that another war is inevitable, with reference to the horrors of atomic war.
England has much changed, and it's residents are no longer necessarily English. There are many migrants, and people are no longer whom they seem to be.

Fifteen years ago one knew who everybody was. The Bantrys in the big house—and the Hartnells and the Price Ridleys and the Weatherbys … They were people whose fathers and mothers and grandfathers...

But it’s not like that any more. Every village and small country place is full of people who’ve just come and settled there without any ties to bring them. The big houses have been sold, and the cottages have been converted and changed. And people just come—and all you know about them is what they say of themselves.
They’ve come, you see, from all over the world.

There were just faces and personalities and they were backed up by ration books and identity cards—nice neat identity cards with numbers on them, without photographs or fingerprints. Anybody who took the trouble could have a suitable identity card —and partly because of that, the subtler links that had held together English social rural life had fallen apart. In a town nobody expected to know his neighbour. In the country now nobody knew his neighbour either, though possibly he still thought he did …

Miss Marple is introduced relatively early in this novel. She is staying at a local hotel, having treatment for her "rheumatic leg." she is introduced as an old "Pussy" who has written to the local police saying that she might have something to contribute in the matter of the recent murder that has taken place at Little Paddocks.

Miss Jane Marple was very nearly, if not quite, as Craddock had pictured her. She was far more benignant than he had imagined and a good deal older. She seemed indeed very old. She had snow-white hair and a pink crinkled face and very soft innocent blue eyes, and she was heavily enmeshed in fleecy wool. Wool round her shoulders in the form of a lacy cape and wool that she was knitting and which turned out to be a baby’s shawl.

There are a couple of sub-plots to keep the reader involved, and eventually 3 murders in the quiet little village of Chipping Cleghorn, and of course, a whole raft of red herrings.

Inspector Craddock the policeman from Scotland Yard is far better treated by Christie than Inspector Slack was in earlier novels. He also has a better appreciation of Miss Marple:

Well, perhaps you’re right, Miss Blacklock, but my own diagnosis would be a severe attack of Nosey Parkeritis …’ ‘She’s a very harmless old creature,’ said Miss Blacklock. ‘Dangerous as a rattlesnake if you only knew,’ the Inspector thought grimly. But he had no intention of taking anyone into his confidence unnecessarily. Now that he knew definitely there was a killer at large, he felt that the less said the better. He didn’t want the next person bumped off to be Jane Marple.

Interesting features of this novel:

Agatha Christie's observations of the changed structure of village life, and her comments on social and economic changes that have taken place;
Miss Marple snares the murderer, whose identity she has already realised, but needs to prove. Her "honey trap", set up with the local policeman, puts one of the other characters in great danger. Note here Miss Marple's talent at mimicry;
Miss Marple moves in a circle of vicarages. The Vicarage at Chipping Cleghorn is not the first one she has stayed at in these novels.
ex-Commissioner of Scotland Yard Sir Henry Clithering first appeared in the late 1920s and is still around, and being consulted.
Note the "mannish" women and the women doing men's jobs.
Note also Jane Marple's own comments on her sleuthing abilities.
There is a romantic element
If Jane Marple was "old" in the late 1920s, how old is she now? It is 25 years later. She has to be in her 80s. ( )

The twist was a bit of a stretch here. It was a decent story but had far too little Ms. Marple for my taste. ( )

Read a long time ago, & just listened to BBC Radio adaptation. One of the greatest Christie set-ups - a murder is announced in the local newspaper, and the villagers invite themselves to the house where the promised drama is to play out.

So many could-be murderers, & Miss Marple gets herself invited locally to do some discreet detective work. ( )

Between 7.30 and 8.30 every morning except Sundays, Johnnie Butt made the round of the village of Chipping Cleghorn on his bicycle, whistling vociferously between his teeth, and alighting at each house or cottage to shove through the letterbox such morning papers had been ordered by the occupants of the house in question from Mr Totman, stationer, of the High Street.
