Nemesis by Agatha Christie

Mr Rafiel has died, leaving Miss Marple a mystery that isn’t yet a mystery because other than he wants Miss Marple to do something for him, he doesn’t leave her any of the facts. He has booked her on a tour of the Famous Houses and Gardens of Great Britain. Miss Marple simply needs to talk to the people around her, be patient and poke about. Or, in this case, wait for an unsuspecting person to be felled by a giant boulder. I think this quote may explain why Christie’s books are bigoted. ‘Miss Marple had never quite succeeded in abandoning her Victorian views of foreigners. One never knew with foreigners. Quite absurd, of course, to feel like that.’

Nemesis is a very good story, well-paced and felt more urgent than other books I have read by Christie.
