Miss Jane Marple, spinster sleuth extraordinaire, is introduced in this first-ever mystery to feature her brilliant talents. The setting is St. Mary Mead, where Colonel Protheroe is found shot in the vicar's study. Nearly everyone in town is a suspect: his daughter, his second wife, the artist enamored with both of them, the poacher, and even the vicar. Into this uproar, Miss Marple carefully steps and shrewdly fits the nearly endless puzzle pieces together. Match wits with this master of the deductive arts.

An excellent mystery read by a relentlessly entertaining narrator who is truly throwing his all into giving each character his or her own unique voice. Each character is very engaging and I found myself fascinated by the entire lot of them and desperate for more of Miss Marple's adventures by the end.

My only complaint is that due to the complex nature of the mystery and the various moving parts such a story must inevitably contain, it's easy to lose sight of things when you're only listening to the story, especially if you're a visual learner like me. I found myself wishing I had the book in my hands so I could go back and re-read things that I had missed. That aside though, this was an excellent audio book that I would heartily recommend to any Christie fan, or anyone looking for a good whodunnit set in polite society.
