Christie seemed to be having more fun with the story/plot than the characters. So that's why it didn't really seem in character for the murderer... or maybe I missed the signs. ( )

Agatha Christie does it again. I find it interesting that throughout the series she keeps refering back to Mother Goose. I read oa Hercule Parriot where he got obsessed with the rhyme "The Three Little Pigs" and it this one it is "Sing A Song of Six-pens." I wonder what the fasination. Once again, some very nasty people get killed along with a simple maid, one who used to work for Miss Marple. Angered at the death, she turns up and proceeds to solve the crime. ( )

Pleasant as usual... nothing deep, nothing depriving you of sleep.... just a great listen for a lazy afternoon! ( )

I enjoyed listening to this book. Classic Miss Marple. Loved how the detective respected Miss Marple and her opinions. Nettle realizes that people would be more willing to talk to her. ( )

I weirdly have some Miss Marple in paperback format and some that are not. I have no idea why. So realizing that I had this on my bookshelf, I decided to read it for Halloween Bingo.

This was done really well. Christie starts the book off with us following an Inspector Nettle to figure out who murdered Rex Fortescue and his second wife, Adele. Initially, it appears that Adele and the man who she is having an affair with are the perpetrators behind the crimes. When the maid is found strangled to death, Nettle is baffled by who is behind these crimes. Then enter, Miss Marple.

We find out that the maid, Gladys worked for Miss Marple, and once Miss Marple found out about her death, she arrives at home of the Fortescue's (Yewtree Lodge).

This is Miss Marple at her best. She and Nettle work well together and even though Nettle is behind Miss Marple in figuring out who is the murderer and the reasons why, it was a fun book to read and try guess who did it and why. Without giving away the ending, I loved how Miss Marple fixates on the rightful murderer and the reasons why.

Christie does a great job of setting up all of the characters before Miss Marple shows up. Sometimes I find myself bored with Marple or Poirot books until they show up, this was not one of those times.

The setting of Yewtree Lodge is good and there are so many people who are viable suspects, Rex had two sons, a daughter, two daughters in laws and a general housekeeper that you are going to wonder if they are behind things or not.

The ending doesn't give you a cut and dried solution though. Things are left at loose ends. You can guess what is going to happen next though.

This is the Agatha Christie book A Pocket Full of Rye featuring Miss Jane Marple. It is not the same work as the Agatha Christie short story "Sing a Song of Sixpence", nor is it the same as the Agatha Christie short story "Four and Twenty Blackbirds" featuring Hercule Poirot.

It is the same work as Das Geheimnis der Goldmine (The Secret of the Goldmine), which is its German title, but it is not the same as the Poirot short story "The Secret of the Lost Mine".
