Sleeping Murder: Miss Marple's Last Case is a work of detective fiction by Agatha Christie and first published in the UK by the Collins Crime Club in October 1976 and in the US by Dodd, Mead and Company later in the same year. The book features Miss Marple. It was the last Christie novel, published posthumously, although not the last one Christie wrote featuring Miss Marple.

Of note: Agatha Christie wrote Sleeping Murder during World War II and had it placed in a bank vault for over thirty years. Chicago Tribune: ‘Agatha Christie saved the best for last. Sunday Express: ‘A puzzle that is tortuous, surprising, an. atisfying. 14. Miss Marple’s Final Cases (1979). Despite the title, the stories collected here recount cases from the middle of Miss.

Miss Jane Marple has many talents. In this case she shows a capacity to reflect and reconstruct acts retroactively. Only to find I was led down a path towards an incorrect conculusion. The plot is interesting. One has to think carefully to discover the murder. The book is labeled as 'Miss Marple's last case' and perhaps that is why she is not as actively involved as I expected. She still explains the final ending thoroughly, and you can think to yourself, "I never thought of that", or, "she's right, it's obvious". I looked forward to sitting down with my Kindle and Miss Marple, to see where the latest clues would lead, and also, to be thoroughly entertained.

A facsimile first edition hardback of the Miss Marple books, published to mark the 75th anniversary of her first appearance and to celebrate her new-found success on television. When The Murder at the Vicarage was published in October 1930, little did the literary world realise that Agatha Christie, already famous for her early Poirot titles, was introducing a character who would become the best-loved female sleuth of all time. The 14 Marple books would appear at intervals over the next 49 years, with Miss Marple's Final Cases published in 1979, three years after Agatha's death. To mark the 75th anniversary of Miss Marple's first appearance, and to celebrate her renewed fortunes as a primetime television star, this collection of facsimile first editions will be the perfect way to enjoy these books in their original form -- 12 novels and two short story collections. Reproducing the original typesetting and formats from the first editions from the Christie family's own archive copies, these books sport the original covers which have been painstakingly restored from the best available copies, reflecting five decades of iconic cover design.

I listened to the audio book and it was wonderful. The narrator Rosalind was first class as she moved from male to female characters and used different accents without missing a beat. The story was good and the solution was, as usual for Ms Christie unexpected. My only complaint is that there could have been more of Ms. Marple although it was explained as to why she appeared a infrequently as she did. When she did appear she was the astute, self deprecating crime fight sleuth that we all love. This is a good book in the Ms. Marple series and I recommend it for anyone that likes a good murder mystery.

This is a review of the audio CD of Agatha Christie's sixth Miss Marple mystery novel. Although Dame Christie wrote far more books featuring her most famous sleuth, Hercule Poirot, the story goes that she grew tired of the little Belgian and embraced the elderly spinster from St. Mary Mead. Careful readers of her work will notice that, in the later Poirot mysteries, he often does not appear until well into the book and/or he shares the stage with the delightful Ariadne Oliver, mystery novelist and "sort of" stand-in for Agatha Christie herself. The later Miss Marples tend to humanize her more and show her as a central figure. Listeners to this novel on CD have a special treat in that they get to listen to Joan Hickson, the finest portrayer of the character, read the book in all her dithery glory.

Before we see Miss Marple, we get to meet the loathsome members of Rex Fortescue's family at their odd estate, Yewtree Lodge. Fortescue is NOT old money; rather, he is a crass member of the nouveaux riche, married to a most inappropriate younger beauty, hated by one son and estranged from the other. Each family member is out for him or herself; even the servants in this household (perhaps the most interesting lot of servants of any of Christie's manor house mysteries) have their foibles and secrets. Very few characters in this menage are likable, but of course that makes for a wonderful mystery.

A series of murders occurs which loosely follow the Mother Goose rhyme "Sing a Song of Sixpence." One of these murders hits close to home for Miss Marple, and she journeys to Yewtree Lodge, determined to seek justice for more personal reasons than usual. And in her own fluffy style, she succeeds in a case that baffles the police.

Miss Marple works intuitively, so don't expect the clueing to be as clever as it is in the Poirot books. But this book makes up for that with a tug at the heartstrings, and the final pages have some moments that are rather heartbreaking. The women characters in this novel are particularly diverse and enjoyable. Highly recommended and great fun!

We all grew up in our day memorizing such immortal Mother Goose poetic lines as":
Sing a song of sixpence, a pocketful of rye,
four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie...
The king was in his counting house, counting out his money (Rex Fortescue the first murder victim in this Christie novel is poisoned when he fatally partakes of his morning tea served to him by his secretary Miss Grosevenor).
The queen was in the parlor eating bread and honey, (the second murder victim is Adele Fortescue the young and sexy wife of Rex who dies when she likewise takes a cup of poison in her beverage whilst at home).
The maid was in the garden hanging out the clothes

When there came a little dickey bird and ripped off her nose (the third murder victim is the maid at home of the Fortescue family who is murdered while in the garden with a clothes pin stuck on her nose!
The story involves a cruel businessman and his dysfunctional family. The case is solved with brilliance by Jane Marple. This Christie novel was first published in 1954. It is a somewhat quiet and slowly told story but it kept my interest as Agatha Christie novels always do.

Miss Jane Marple has many talents. In this case she shows a capacity to reflect and reconstruct acts retroactively. The plot is interesting. One has to think carefully to discover the murder. Agatha tells the story in a direct manner. Miss Marple comes in the scene in a politely way and gains the confidence of the persons involved. A good reading that shows some of Miss Marple's techniques.
