In Agatha Christie’s classic Sleeping Murder the indomitable Miss Marple turns ghost hunter and uncovers shocking evidence of a perfect crimeSoon after Gwenda moved into he. Miss Marple appears scantily in this particular story Here the murder dominates the scene I ve noticed that the murders that Agatha Christie places in the relative past that is prior to the current investigation well these murders always have the bodies tumbled out of the cupboard Books of Agatha Christie that use this device appeal to me and also to many others judging by the several mysteries where the author uses this trick It is a trick after all a very solid gimmick that engenders macabre feelings like there was no tomorrow I scarcely noticed that Miss Marple was not being her usual self she didn t draw too much parallel with human psychology when explaining her thoughts at the end In fact there s little proof that Miss Marple knew with certainty of the murderer s identity There s no proof of the murderer s crime even Thankfully it s not one of those stories where the frail Miss Marple derails the mind of a hardened serial killer with cheap tricks like in A Murder Is Announced for example So yeah I solved this case However the case was very deceiving and I was up against a palpable wall of fog There was not much to latch onto There is no slow start to this book which was one of the reasons for the five stars I gave it I was completely baffled by the events leading to the bewilderment of one Gwenda Reed Along with the sense of evil there s a forbidding atmosphere and a hint of regret and a pining at the waste of life There were two things that put me on the right track First the action of cutting that tennis net to shreds Secondly the murderer is mostly the one who is able to influence the case and distort facts to his advantage I didn t pick on the wound that Helen got on her foot I only knew that the culprit didn t have a brain teaser of an alibi I absolutely loved the uote from the Duchess of Malfi The uote which I can t paste because it s too much of a bother to go look for it in my ebook defines the galling evilness of the crime It also gave away the fact that the murderer was insane to a degree I would have wanted for Miss Marple to rant against the wicked nature of the crime but she was surprisingly passive in this book If I remember correctly there was one moment where her eyes expressed anger but that was in the middle of the book and at that time she wasn t sure of the solution to the murder Another reason for liking this book so much is the vivid depiction of the characters Among all the pure and innocent characters that Agatha Christie has thrust upon our readership the young Reed couple was one the most believable It s very difficult to make decent innocent characters come to life The author presents Gwenda and her husband in their non British simplicity They are so pure that the finicky English countryside people warm up to them with no trouble It s unclear whether the main protagonists had a New Zealand accent and how strong it was But the Reed couple were life like and they hid the fact that they were cogs in the story which I enjoyed very muchThis is I regret already the last Marple book that was unread uptil now The book called Nemesis had a similar strong presence of evil and a murder set in the past with a close person as the murderer Miss Marple books are as fine as Alice In Wonderland or Sherlock Holmes stories They are the finest simple sustenance that the English literature can impart to the young and not so young They are to be cherished
