About the Book

Did you know that one of the world’s sharpest and most forensic minds inhabited the persona of an attractive old lady, with pink cheeks and blue eyes, and a gentle, rather fussy manner? Discover the secrets of Miss Marple in this gorgeous book of her quotes and sayings, and an essay by Agatha Christie appearing for the first time in any book!

‘Really, I have no gifts – except perhaps a certain knowledge of human nature.’

Everyone in St Mary Mead knew Miss Marple: fluffy and dithery in appearance, but inwardly as sharp and as shrewd as they make them.

‘This is a wicked murderer, Inspector – and the wicked should not go unpunished.’

Now, in her own words, discover the razor-sharp mind of the world’s favourite armchair sleuth, and the wit and wisdom of the Queen of Crime who created her.

Includes an exclusive essay by Agatha Christie written to promote the Miss Marple stories: Does a Woman’s Instinct Make Her a Good Detective?

Critical Praise

‘There was no unkindness in Miss Marple, she just did not trust people. Though she expected the worst, she often accepted people kindly in spite of what they were.’—Agatha Christie, <i>An Autobiography</i>
