Miss Marple is an unmarried elderly lady living in the small English town of St. Mary Mead. Miss Marple is able to solve mysteries like no other. She has lived in her small town all her life and recalls seemingly unconnected events that lead her to solve the mystery. St. Mary Mead is a microcosm of the world in general and Miss Marple has a large number of friends, relatives and tradespeople she knows.
I can not select one story as my favourite as they are all excellent. Agatha Christie is a fantastic mystery writer as evidenced by these short stories.
First Line: "Unsolved Mysteries."
