The Moving FingerDie anonymen Briefe sorgen für böses Blut in dem kleinen Städtchen Als sie dann noch zwei myste Not a favorite by any means The Moving Finger is a good tidy mystery but our Miss Marple is not part of the story until the very end I have read uite a few Christie mysteries stand alone stories a few Poirrot a few Tommy and Tuppence but mostly Miss Marple She is my favorite because she knows human failings and foibles so well and she looks like a dowdy old lady; and therefore is not taken seriously by murderers until it's too late

Agatha Christie ñ The Moving Finger kindle

Le zu bunt Statt länger Landluft zu tanken legt sie ihr Strickzeug beiseite und schreitet zur Tat A curious Miss Marple tale not least because of favourite elderly sleuth only has a minor role in this novelI think I would have enjoyed this one if I wasn’t aware that Christie’s other famous detective featured and her appearance would have come as a great surpriseThe mystery itself instantly grabbed me as siblings Jerry and Joanna Burton arrive in the uite village of Lymstock only to find a series of anonymous letters spreading false accusations including themselves with a letter stating that the brother and sister are really loversIt all comes to a head when Mrs Symmington body is found alongside a letter and poison an inuest instantly rule the death as suicideThe idea of a poison pen letter is a great one and easily casts everyone as a suspect The air of suspicion not least with the gossiping notes added an off kilter feel about the villageI found the middle portion of the novel to lag slightly thoughMarple herself feels tacked on at the end I practically liked her scenes of summing up all the cluesThe realisation that the solution was so obvious is why even the weaker Christie’s are still a joy to read
