Rex Fortescue was sipping tea when he suffered a painful death. On later inspection, his pockets were found to contain traces of cereal. Miss Marple suspects that she’s looking at a case of crime by rhyme.
My Rating: 5/5
As I have made known before too, my reason to pick up this one was me reading a book before this one that had a bit amateur sleuthing going on. I had a little taste of my favourite and wanted more. And then, who better than Christie, right?
When I bought this book a few month ago, there were two incitements. One, it was Agatha Christie. Second, I fell in love with the cover.
Back to the story. I loved it! Not even for one second I thought the culprit was the culprit (yes, I am trying to keep it as spoiler free as I am humanly possible 😀 ) even when I had the crown of culpability fit on almost everyone else.
I was completely blown when the truth was revealed because it never occurred to me that there could be a very simple reasoning when my mind was all too engrossed in untangling non-existent complexities.
Now I know who I am buying more of when I next head to the bookstore.
A must read for all you mystery buffs.
