Book 1: Miss Marple: The Complete Short Stories
This collection gathers together every short story featuring one of Agatha Christie's most famous creations: Miss Marple. Described by her friend Dolly Bantry as "the typical old maid of fiction," Miss Marple has lived almost her entire life in the sleepy hamlet of St. Mary Mead. Yet, by observing village life she has gained an unparalleled insight into human nature--and used it to devastating effect. As her friend Sir Henry Clithering, the ex- Commissioner of Scotland Yard, has been heard to say: "She's just the finest detective God ever made"--and many Agatha Christie fans would agree.
Jane Marple Returns for murder, mayhem, and mystery in this collection of short stories penned by twelve remarkable bestselling and acclaimed authors- a thrilling celebration of one of the queen of mystery's most beloved characters. Featuring stories from Naomi Alderman, Leigh Bardugo, Alyssa Cole, Lucy Foley, Elly Griffiths, Natalie Haynes, Jean Kwok, Val McDermid, Karen M. McManus, Dreda Say Mitchell, Kate Mosse, Ruth Ware
