A Caribbean Mystery Audiobook Summary

The delightful Miss Marple is ensnared in A Caribbean Mystery when a retired military man sparks her curiosity with a photograph and a strange story of a murderer

As Miss Marple sat basking in the Caribbean sunshine, she felt mildly discontented with life. True, the warmth eased her rheumatism, but here in paradise nothing ever happened.

Eventually, her interest was aroused by an old soldier’s yarn about a murderer he had known. Infuriatingly, just as he was about to show her a snapshot of this acquaintance, the Major was suddenly interrupted. A diversion that was to prove fatal.

A Caribbean Mystery (Miss Marple, #10), Agatha ChristieCharacters: Miss Jane Marple, Mr. RafielAbstract: Miss Jane Marple, at the insistence of her nephew, relaxes at a resort in the Caribbean. The sea is sublime and the weather is fine in this quiet paradise so far away from quiet St. Mary Mead, until the apparently natural death of fellow guest Major Palgrave. Miss Marple is disturbed because the previous evening he was in good health, and almost showed her "a snapshot of a murderer". Convinced that the major's death was not at all natural, she begins to ask difficult questions, and another victim dies.

A Caribbean Mystery is the 10th book in the Miss Marple series written by Dame Agatha Christie. I've read most of her books or watched television adaptations throughout my life, but this year, I am rereading the Marple and Poirot collections so that I can add more details to my reviews (or write a review now that I remember enough about it). Miss Marple needs to get away to warmer weather, prompting her nephew to gift her a trip to a Caribbean island. Of course, a few days in and there's a strange death, followed by a second one. Both on their own could've been from natural causes, but together, something doesn't seem right. As she investigates the other hotel guests, owners, and workers, she discovers many unexpected connections. Some folks knew each other before this trip. Others were secretly married or having affairs. And the murder story told by the first victim (all in good fun) apparently was a true one. Just what did he know that got him killed? Clever. Kept my focus all afternoon. Might annoy a few readers with some not-so-kind but normal-for-the-time-period language in relation to homosexuals and African-Americans. I don't ignore it, but I also read these books for the plot and understand the time in which it was written. That said, the conclusion was too abrupt and I think it could've done with more details about the past reasonings for some of the relationships.

Miss Marple does it again, this time while sunning at a Caribbean resort. A blowhard dies of natural causes, but Miss Marple is struck by the timing: blowhard claimed to have seen a murderer a day earlier. Assorted creepy and pathetic people, secret and twisted relationships, and greed drive this story to a worthy conclusion.

A lovely mystery that started slow and then took some surprising twists and turns near the end.

Love Agatha! Miss Marple, yay! Since she's not at home, she has to work harder to be taken seriously. This time, for once, I thought I had the murderer figured out. Nope, wrong again.Reread... Just got one question; how did she get rich nephews who buy her Caribbean vacations? (Jealous me)😎

Again, a fantastic literary sleight of hand where the clues are paraded before one's eyes - yet that one crucial piece of misdirection fools one till the end.
