Murder at the Vicarage
by Agatha Christie [Compact Disc Christie]
This is the first book in the Miss Marple series. Set in St. Mary Mead, a villager is found dead in the vicar's study. The trouble in finding the culprit is that the victim was not well liked by a number of people in the village. The police get on the case, but Miss Marple has her own list of suspects. As neighbor to the vicar, she helps sort out the matter, without interfering of course. This was a nice cozy mystery that you could re-read and still enjoy the story, even after you know the ending. I listened to the audio book version and the narration was well done with different voices for different characters. Those who like mysteries or stories set in England or small villages would enjoy this book.
