Agatha Christie's last novel, published posthumously, is a whodunit set in the fictional village of West Egg on Long Island. The novel's narrator, Miss Marple, is called in to solve the murder of a wealthy American, Mr. James Gurney. Miss Marple's longtime friend, the village vicar, is a prime suspect, but she is able to exonerate him. The novel's climax takes place at a party on Mr. Gurney's yacht, and Miss Marple's clever sleuthing provides the solution.; 8vo; [xvi], 247 pages; $10.00.
