Miss Marple Mysteries
In utter disbelief, Miss Marple read the letteraddressed to her from the recently deceasedMr. Rafiel—an acquaintance she had met brieflyon her travels. He had left instructions for her toinvestigate a crime after his death. The only problemwas, he had failed to tell her who was involved orwhere and when the crime had been committed.It was most intriguing.
Soon she is faced with a new crime—the ultimatecrime—murder. It seems someone is adamant thatpast evils remained buried. . . .
“Agatha Christie proves that if you really are good enough, you can break all the ‘rules’ and still come up with a winner.”
“Miss Marple was an old lady now, knowing that a scent for evil was still, in the evening of her days, her peculiar gift.”
The Queen of Mystery has come to Harper Collins! Agatha Christie, the acknowledged mistress of suspense—creator of indomitable sleuth Miss Marple, meticulous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, and so many other unforgettable characters—brings her entire oeuvre of ingenious whodunits, locked room mysteries, and perplexing puzzles to Harper Paperbacks. In Nemesis, a letter from a dead man instructs Miss Marple how to conduct an investigation into a puzzlingly unspecific crime.
