The Murder at the Vicarage.
A Miss Marple Story.
This is the 13th book by Agatha Christie and the First involving Miss Marple.
Oh how no-one thinks an elderly spinster could be interesting or knowledgeable when it comes to - well almost anything except perhaps her garden.
This book is full of endearing characters and infuriating characters which are probably the norm in an English Village the difference here being that one of those infuriating characters gets murdered.
Plenty of suspects and a complicated timeline of events makes this a difficult case to solve until Miss Marple can see around and through various aspects of this mystery.
A great storyline to introduce this sleuth and one that is definitely suited to her personality and insight. So read and enjoy (as I did) and watch out for the clock, the garden and all the people that see everything in a village.
