A Caribbean Mystery

Front Cover
Harper Collins, Jan 6, 2004 - Fiction - 240 pages
186 Reviews

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.

Review: A Caribbean Mystery (Miss Marple #10)

User Review  - Goodreads

Reliably diverting read, great for holiday reading on the sun lounger. Anything by Christie is always good for a distraction and it was just a bonus with this one that it was set in the Caribbean. Read full review
