Miss Marple's Final Case
A novel that adheres to the classic mystery formula, as well as transcends it, Sleeping Murder -- published the year of Agatha Christie's death -- marks the final appearance of her popular sleuth. And this time "Christie makes us feel her shiver" (New York Times) as the usually unflappable Miss Jane Marple delves into the moral complexities of an immoral crime. Gwenda Reed's new home, a charming Victorian villa, is giving the lovely new bride the strangest feeling of deja vu -- and an unnatural dread that's taking its toll. Perhaps her husband's aunt, Miss Jane Marple, can calm the young woman's frayed nerves. But how can anyone solve a mystery such as this when the only clues are those in Gwenda's vivid imagination? As Aunt Jane digs a little deeper she's soon to discover just how truthful -- and terrifying -- the imagination can be....About the Author:

She is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and another billion in over 100 foreign languages. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 19 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott
