Best of Poirot

The tranquility of a cruise along the Nile was shattered by the discovery that Linnet Ridgeway had been shot through the head. She was young, stylish, and beautiful. A girl who had everything ... until she lost her life.
Hercule Poirot recalled an earlier outburst by a fellow passenger: 'I'd like to put my dear little pistol against her head and just press the trigger."
Yet in this exotic setting, nothing was ever quite what it seemed.

Roger Ackroyd was a man who knew too much.
He knew the woman he loved had poisoned her first husband. He knew someone was blackmailing her – and now he knew she had taken her own life with a drug overdose.
The one thing he didn’t know was the identity of the mystery blackmailer… But the evening post brought Roger this last scrap of information. But before he’d finished reading the letter, Roger was dead – stabbed through the neck where he sat in his study…

Best of Miss Marple
‘Anyone who murdered Colonel Protheroe,’ declared the parson, brandishing a carving knife above a joint of roast beef, ‘would be doing the world at large a favour!’
It was a careless remark for a man of the cloth.
And one which was to come back and haunt the clergyman just a few hours later – when the Colonel is found dead, shot through the head in the clergyman’s study…
“When she really hits her stride, as she does here, Agatha Christie is hard to surpass.” Saturday Review of Literature

1) Christie biographer Charles Osborne's essay on The Murder at the Vicarage.

As Miss Marple sat basking in the Caribbean sunshine, she felt mildly discontented with life. True, the warmth eased her rheumatism, but here in paradise nothing ever happened.
Eventually, her interest was aroused by an old soldier's yarn about a murderer he had known. Infuriatingly, just as he was about to show her a snapshot of this acquaintance, the Major was suddenly interrupted. A diversion that was to prove fatal.
As seen on the PBS Masterpiece Mystery! series.

Never mind purists who bemoan Margaret Rutherford’s incarnation of Agatha Christie’s celebrated spinster sleuth. These four British films, produced between 1961 and 64, are jolly good, regardless of their tenuous connection with Miss Marple as written.
Murder Ahoy, is an original screenplay credited as “an interpretation of Miss Marple.” And two others, Murder at the Gallop and Murder Most Foul were based on books featuring Christie’s other famed detective, Hercule Poirot.”
Rutherford makes a formidable first impression in Murder She Said, based on Christie’s 4.50 From Paddington, in which the armchair sleuth goes undercover as a servant after witnessing a murder on a train. In Murder at the Gallop, based on After the Funeral, where there’s a will, there’s murder. In Murder Ahoy, Marple discovers a ship of thieves. In Murder Most Foul, Marple deadlocks a jury and joins a theatrical troupe to prove the defendant’s innocence.
