Whilst dining at the Bantrys Miss Marple is asked to tell a murder mystery. She recounts the time she could tell from a man’s behaviour, that he was planning to kill his wife.
But at the time of the murder he had a perfect alibi…
Here’s a short, quick review for this short story…
I really like the Miss Marple stories but not really sure why it’s called A Christmas Tragedy as there wasn’t any mention of Christmas – I feel a bit robbed!
The usual Christie / Marple template applies to this short story only with Miss Marple retelling the events of the discovery of the body etc and how she manages to work out the how, where and why!
A quick easy read with the usual characters so not much in the way of character development but then we know them all so well from other books and TV.
It’s a clever plot but did feel a little hurried however I still enjoyed it.
