“Of all Christie’s detectives, it’s Jane Marple who best understood what can drive ordinary people to the extraordinary act of taking a life.”—S. J. Rozan, Edgar Award-winning author

A beautifully designed collection of charming quotations that showcase the wit and wisdom of Agatha Christie’s widely adored Miss Marple.

The razor-sharp mind of the world’s favorite armchair sleuth is brilliantly revealed in this anthology of Miss Marple insights and bon mots, curated from Agatha Christie’s classic novels featuring the delightful amateur detective.

“Really, I have no gifts—except perhaps a certain knowledge of human nature.”

“Everybody in St Mary Mead knew Miss Marple: fluffy and dithery in appearance, but inwardly as sharp and as shrewd as they make them.”

“This is a wicked murderer, Inspector—and the wicked should not go unpunished.”

The perfect addition to the Miss Marple mysteries for both aficionados and new fans, this companion volume also includes Agatha Christie’s illuminative essay, “Does a Woman’s Instinct Make Her a Good Detective?”
