    Audio
    A beautiful gift pack featuring one of Agatha Christie's most famous creations: Miss Marple. Aimed at the Christmas market it contains The Thirteen Problems and Miss Marple's Final Cases, gathering together all the Miss Marple short stories. Described by her friend Dolly Bantry as 'the typical old maid of fiction', Miss Marple has lived almost her entire life in the sleepy hamlet of St Mary Mead. Yet, by observing village life she has gained an unparalleled insight into human nature - and used it to devasting effect. As her friend Sir Henry Clithering, the ex-Commissioner of Scotland Yard has been heard to say: 'She's just the finest detective God ever made.' - and many Agatha Christie fans would agree. Appearing for the first time in The Murder at The Vicarage (1930) her crime-fighting career spanned over forty years when she solved her final case in 1977 in Sleeping Murder. With every tale flawlessly plotted by the Queen of Crime herself, these short stories provide a feast for hardened Agatha Christie addicts as well as those who have grown to love the detective through her many film and television appearances.

    Product Code: BWKZW
    Paperback
    The definitive companion to the MISS MARPLE novels, short stories, films and TV appearances, now revised and updated. `I have had a lot of experience in solving different little problems that have arisen.' Most of the `little problems' tackled by Miss Marple occurred in the pretty rural village of St Mary Mead and came in the shape of murder, robbery and blackmail. In the 40 years of her career, she even solved cases as far afield as London and the Caribbean. But though she usually masqueraded as `everybody's favourite great aunt', what was she really like? In this authorised biography of the world's most famous female sleuth, Anne Hart combs through the 12 novels and 20 short stories in which Miss Marple appeared, uncovering clue and amassing all the evidence to solve the most difficult case of them all - the mystery of Miss Marple. This new edition has been updated to include new information about original publication dates, newspaper and magazine serials, and up-to-date lists of TV, radio and stage adaptations (including Geraldine McEwan, Julia McKenzie, June Whitfield and Susie Blake).
