Of the actual mystery stories in this collection, perhaps The Tape-Measure Murder or Sanctuary were my favourites. As I've said before Miss Marple for me IS Joan Hickson, and so every time I read the words Miss Marple I see Joan Hickson in my head and somehow it makes the story even more enjoyable as i imagine her eyes twinkling as she teases whichever policeman is trying to follow her wonderfully rambling stories.

Strange Jest -Two young people are the heirs to their jokester uncle, who left them something, they are sure of it, they just don't know what it is. On 8 December 1926 the couple quarreled, and Archie Christie left their house, Styles, in Sunningdale, Berkshire, to spend the weekend with his mistress at Godalming, Surrey. Their marriage was especially happy in the early years and remained so until Christie's death in 1976.Published posthumously, this collection of tales, seven of them featuring Agatha Christie’s much loved Miss Marple, plus two stand-alone stories, is a treasure trove. A fine first impression copy of this volume of Christie's final Marple short stories, gripping murder mystery stories by the Queen of Crime, The first edition, first impression of this work.

So if you are fast reader it won’t take too long to page through six cases and two unrelated to Miss Marple stories.So after a Christmas of numerous Poirots on tv, I thought I’d finally finish my challenge, 13 months late. She had many high profile friends, such as Winston Churchill, Coco Chanel, Fred Astaire, and Nancy Mitford, a sparkling hostess of the Edwardian period, her hedonistic antics bringing her into the Bright Young Things.

The Dressmaker's Doll - Creepy tale of a doll who seems alive, and moves around the rooms, apparently on her own steam, freaking out the workers in the dressmaker's establishment. Stories that were rushed and sloppy, details that were just pointless and the last two stories didn't even feature Miss Marple!

The book contains eight short stories, six featuring Miss Marple and two other stories, and did not originally appear in the United States because most of the stories had been published earlier in the US in magazines. They are very much different from the usual and for all those reasons, the book is a good if surprising read. The Tape-Measure Murder: First published in issue 614 of the Strand Magazine in February 1942 under the title of The Case of the Retired Jeweller. The Case of the Perfect Maid: First published in issue 616 of the Strand Magazine in April 1942 under the shortened title of The Perfect Maid.However, that one is more of a real treasure hunt with clues, and this one is that he didn't trust banks and they're just hunting around in the house for what the crazy old fart did with all of his money. Many of the mysteries were excellent―the puzzles keeping me guessing ( A Murder is Announced, The Body in the Library, 4:50 from Paddington, Sleeping Murder, among them) but there was so much more to them as well. Miss Christie: "There's a butler with a pink umbrella who has a tabby cat and smokes two cigarettes a day. I have now come to the end of my Miss Marple reading marathon this year, with this final volume, “Miss Marple’s Final Cases.
