Yakov Ben Efraim's insight:

Agatha Christie has for long been known as the indisputable master of murder mystery novels, always being capable of delivering a solid plot that drags the reader along exactly where it wants to, keeping them oblivious to the clues under their noses and leading to the unexpected unveiling of the criminal nobody even suspected.

Though she did tend to follow certain archetypes or had similar settings from one story to the next, there always managed to be that high-class uniqueness to it all, as can be perfectly seen with 4:50 From Paddington, a Miss Marple mystery.

Quick Book Reviews: “The Murder at the Vicarage” by Agatha Christie – Marple's Debut

Quick Book Reviews: “The Murder at the Vicarage” by Agatha Christie – Marple's Debut | Agatha Christie | Scoop.it
The Murder at the Vicarage by Agatha Christie is the first Miss Marple novel, following her as she investigates a murder which took place in a clergyman's study.
Yakov Ben Efraim's insight:

Though Agatha Christie has certainly gained untold levels of notoriety for her stories featuring the unforgettable Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot, it is sometimes easy to forget that somewhere down the line, she created a sort of counterpart: Miss Marple.


A lovely aged lady, Miss Marple is rather gifted when it comes to powers of deduction, and often unwittingly finds herself in the middle of quite morbid affairs which call upon her specific talents. Her run in literature was no less impressive than Poirot's, netting an array of stories, and this review will focus on the beginning of it all, The Murder at the Vicarage.
