The Moving Finger by Agatha Christie

The Moving Finger
by Agatha Christie [Christie] 

While this was a good story it left me feeling a bit disappointed because it’s in the Miss Marple series however she is absent for the vast majority of the story. If you are looking for any sort of historical mystery set in England then this is not a bad choice but if you want to read a Miss Marple story then there are better ones in my opinion. The plot begins with a brother and a sister who move to a small village whist the brother is recouping from some injuries. They begin to get hate letters but come to find they aren’t the only ones. As this continues, someone ends up dead in what seems to be a suicide in reaction to one of the hate letter they received. The question is was it suicide or is the letter writer the culprit? It is a really good read if you like mysteries, just know that Miss Marple does not appear till the very end so it doesn’t have the same feeling as the others in her series.
