The Body in the Library
Author: Agatha Christie [Website] aka Mary Westmacott
Series: Miss Marple Mystery, Bk 2
Obtained: Library ebook
Why this book?:
I needed a "book published 15 years ago or more" for the Summer Reading bingo. I decided to interpret that as original publication date. Plus I had read the first in both the Miss Marple and poirot series, but hadn't gone further.
I just read back my commentary about the first book in this series, The Murder at the Vicarage, and realized I claimed I would read them all in audio. Obviously that didn't happen.
I enjoyed this mystery. It flowed better for me than some vintage mysteries have, and I enjoyed the story line. I was, of course particularly interested in the body being in a library. I'm no Miss Marple and I did not detect the circumstances. Which meant I was able to enjoy the unraveling of the plotting and scheming that goes hand in hand with this type of story. Fun; I'll have to be quicker about reading the next book.
