Publisher Description

In Agatha Christie’s classic, A Pocket Full of Rye, the bizarre death of a financial tycoon has Miss Marple investigating a very odd case of crime by rhyme.

Rex Fortescue, king of a financial empire, was sipping tea in his “counting house” when he suffered an agonizing and sudden death. On later inspection, the pockets of the deceased were found to contain traces of cereals.

Yet, it was the incident in the parlor which confirmed Miss Marple’s suspicion that here she was looking at a case of crime by rhyme. . . .

The Brilliance of Miss Marple.

I am making my way through all of the Marple and Poirot books. While I had initially decided not to bother with the books I had seen adapted for the two series, I had a change of heart after remembering that they do take license with them.

A Pocket Full of Rye was followed close enough and I was surprised by the elements that weren’t. This story hit close to home for Miss Marple and it brought out her warrior’s instincts quite brilliantly. Inspector Neele was mostly up to the task and was most gracious about looping dear Jane in.

The Dame did a good job of planting the red herrings to a most poignant conclusion.
