One of her best - newlyweds Giles and Gwenda move to Britain from NZ and coincidentally buy the house that Gwenda had lived in as a young child, the house from which her young stepmother had disappeared eighteen years earlier. Gwenda, alarmingly, begins to remember more about that time, and fortunately Miss Marple gets involved. The more they uncover, the more things begin to get dangerous. Re-read this not long after reading Professor Monckton-Smith's book "In Control" about coercive control and how it leads to murder and there are parallels in this much earlier fictional work.. ( )

In this short Miss Marple mystery, a young couple purchased a home. It invokes a memory in the young woman of a strangled woman named Helen. After meeting Miss Marple who encourages the woman to write to someone who may know if she'd ever lived in England, she finds the woman she saw was probably her stepmother. However, no one ever suspected the woman dead. The story told at the time was the woman ran off. Untangling eighteen years of lies, the couple, with the help of Miss Marple, find the truth. I knew from the moment we first met the guilty party who it was, but it was still a fun romp with Miss Marple via a Full Cast BBC production audiobook. ( )

Ok, I have Agatha Christie broken, after all her books, I know enough of how she makes her mysteries to pick out the murderer very early on, but also it is not a problem. You still have that self doubt, and even in books where I know for sure who the murderer is, the books are still readable. Agatha Christie really is a master of mystery.

So the book is about a young woman, coming to a house in the south of England and suddenly recalling of memories(?) of a strangled lady. Luckily she is a friend of a friend of Ms Marple (aren't everyone. :-) ) so she is not on her own.

In which a young woman's haunting memories lead her on the trail of a murder from the far distant past.

"Sleeping Murder" was written during World War II and - along with the more explicitly-final Poirot novel "Curtain" - placed in a bank vault, to be opened only when Christie was either deceased, or too old to write any more. As a result, the various recurring characters in Jane Marple's life don't really seem to have aged properly, and it seems best to treat this as a flashback, rather than - as the book's subtitle would inform us - "Miss Marple's Last Case".

This book is quite middle-of-the-line but has a lot going for it: the central character, for instance, is intriguing, and fairly haunted by the things she discovers. For some reason, Marple novels always work better when she has a sidekick of sorts, although here you could really call Marple the sidekick, as Gwenda does a good deal of the investigation. Also, when Christie wrote this in the early '40s, she must have been enticed by the idea of the retrospective novel: many of her later efforts - often brilliant, often not - would tackle long-dead murders.

On the downside, there aren't all that many suspects and - unlike later efforts, such as "Five Little Pigs" - the 18-year-old murder remains firmly in the past, affecting the present only through the fear of retribution, never through a human element. It's an interesting-enough read, at the end of the day, but the "cold case" feels very cold, and Miss Marple herself really could have slept through this one. (Incidentally, it's one of the poorer efforts from the Hickson adaptation series - not through any fault of its own, but simply that it adapts the novel quite literally: an incredibly languid story in which Marple herself makes a few cameos.)

Marple ranking: 7th out of 14 ( )

Almost at the end of my journey with Miss Marple and this one was really great. Miss Marple helps the wife of her young nephew deal with a recently revived memory of her having witnessed a murder as a child. The thing about this one is what is left unsaid, in this case, the unusual relation between the victim and her brother. Today we would just flat out say he molested her, but Christie has to talk around it and not state the obvious. ( )
