“The Body in the Library” by Agatha Christie – A Book Review

This is another Miss Marple Mystery first published in 1942.

How did a female body get to be there in the library of the residence of Colonel and Mrs Bantry? Both were friends of Miss Jane Marple and therefore Mrs Bantry requested the help of Miss Marple to solve this mystery. The reputation of Miss Marple in solving murders was well known even to the police. Jane Marple studied human nature and drew parallels to characters of her village to match human natures to analyse the current case.

As I was reading the fiction, I was not nearer to establishing the killer until I was reaching the end of the book. The author, Agatha Christie kept me in the dark and I was frustrated just like the police detectives.

The plot of murder was convoluted for reason to provide alibi for the real killer. However with the clear explanation by Miss Marple, one could marvel at the ingenious plot and the killer nearly got away with it.
