A Caribbean Mystery (by Agatha Christie)

I discovered yet more of Agatha Christie's books at a relative's house... it seems I am becoming hooked on light crime. Such a relief to discover that there's no horror, little suspense, and a minimum of gore in this books, even if they do contain murders galore.

'A Caribbean Mystery' features the gentle Miss Marple, who confuses people by seeming like a little old lady, who couldn't possibly know anything about murders or mysteries. In this book, she is on holiday abroad when - surprise, surprise - a murder takes place.

In her usual gentle fashion, Miss Marple discovers what happened, and who was responsible. A bit convoluted, but still an enjoyable story.
