(4 / 5) Agatha Christie: Marple
I am a huge fan of Agatha Christie, murder mysteries, and the short story format so this book was destined to be one I loved and I was not disappointed! This book is a collection of twelve new Marple mysteries written by modern mystery authors and it was thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish.
While each short mystery story stood alone, I appreciated the continuity of characters throughout the stories so a brief introduction of common characters was enough of a reminder for the reader to remember the recurring secondary characters surrounding Ms. Marple and therefore the writer could focus on the mystery. Reading these short stories had the same feel as reading authentic Agatha Christie mysteries which made reading this collection of short stories a pleasure.
If you enjoy murder mysteries (especially in the short story format) you should absolutely pick up this collection! Agatha Christie’s stories have remained popular for the last 100 yrs for a reason and these modern authors do her work justice in their continuation of Ms. Marple!
Read on my friends!
