In Agatha Christie’s classic, Sleeping Murder, the indomitable Miss Marple turns ghost hunter and uncovers shocking evidence of a perfect crime.
Soon after Gwenda moved into her new home, odd things started to happen. Despite her best efforts to modernize the house, she only succeeded in dredging up its past. Worse, she felt an irrational sense of terror every time she climbed the stairs.
In fear, Gwenda turned to Miss Marple to exorcise her ghosts. Between them, they were to solve a “perfect” crime committed many years before.
Miss Marple does it again
This is one of my favorite Agatha Christie novels. Miss Marple is a wonderful detective. Always in the right place at the right time.
As Miss Marple's last mystery, this story keeps you completely guessing what was going to happen next. The story would take you one place then you would arrive at another. A perfect example of how brilliant Dame Agatha Christie was as a mystery writer, and an example of why she is still considered the best mystery writer of all time.
As always, a great read.
I love AC, and this one is no different. Leaves you dying for more.
