Sleeping Murder

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.
