My rating: 5 of 5 stars
It has been ages since I have read these Miss Marple short stories and they were excellent! Miss Marple, some friends and some detectives all discuss crimes from their past which were interesting, both solved and unsolved. Miss Marple makes the point that most crimes need to be solved not only for the sake of the murdered person, but for the sake of people who were suspected but innocent.
In each case, Miss Marple understands the personal aspect of the crime and is able to apply it to the crime in question. While I always try to observe all the details, just like Miss Marple, I hardly ever can solve the crime. I have to say that the reader is always provided with enough information to come to a conclusion, but the depth of her understanding of human nature is enough to rival the best detective.
