An exotic holiday for Miss Marple is ruined when a retired major is killed...


As Jane Marple sat basking in the tropical sunshine she felt mildly discontented with life. True, the warmth eased her rheumatism, but here in paradise nothing ever happened. Then a question was put to her by a stranger: 'Would you like to see a picture of a murderer?' Before she has a chance to answer, the man vanishes, only to be found dead the next day. The mysteries abound: Where is the picture? Why is the hotelier prone to nightmares? Why doesn't the most talked-about guest, a reclusive millionaire, ever leave his room? And why is Miss Marple herself fearful for her life?

Of note: A Caribbean Mystery introduces the wealthy (and difficult) Mr Jason Rafiel, who will call upon Miss Marple for help in Nemesis (1971) -- after his death.

Going on holiday in the tropics, Miss Marple finds herself bored to death. At least until a murder occurs! And with the clues piling up, the body count does as well. But she will have to go back to the first crime and try and remember her reason for boredom in order to catch a killer. This novel doesn't disappoint even an avid fan like myself.
