This is by far my favorite Miss Marple mystery. Boo to the BBC for cocking it up. I mean, really! What was wrong with the original? Nothing!
Okay, I'm kidding (a little bit!). I feel that there is more here than just a murder mystery. This, to me, is a nod at a bygone era (just passing by moments before), making all of the events a very nostalgic trip down not just the memory lane of our protagonist but of Agatha Christie's as well. In my mind's eye I can see all of the ghosts and it made this book, for me, extremely beautiful as well as a very emotionally powerful story.
