The Murder at the Vicarage (Paperback)
The first Miss Marple mystery, one which tests all her powers of observation and deduction.
Anyone who murdered Colonel Protheroe, declared the parson, brandishing a carving knife above a joint of roast beef, would be doing the world at large a favor!
It was a careless remark for a man of the cloth. And one which was to come back and haunt the clergyman just a few hours laterwhen the Colonel is found shot dead in the clergymans study. But as Miss Marple soon discovers, the whole village seems to have had a motive to kill Colonel Protheroe.
About the Author
Agatha Christie (1890 1976), one of the most popular authors of all time and known the Queen of Crime, is the author of eighty novels and short-story collections, including "The Mysterious Affair at Styles", "And Then There Were None", "The Murder of Roger Ackroyd", and "The Mirror Crack'd".
“Agatha Christie taught me two things: that plotting mysteries was an art, and that a woman detective could be as strong a character as a male detective.”
-Charles Todd, New York Times bestselling author of the Ian Rutledge mysteries and Bess Crawford mysteries
“When she really hits her stride, as she does here, Agatha Christie is hard to surpass.”
-Saturday Review of Literature
