I'm always saying, 'I don't like Agatha Christie'. I picked this book up recently and quite enjoyed it. It's a late one, 1962; Miss Marple is old, St Mary Mead is changing fast but the same old detection methods still seem to work. I haven't changed my mind; her books are not a patch on those by Margery Allingham.
