Not the best Miss Marple, 5 January 2003

This is a little different from the normal Miss Marple and suffers a little because of it, I feel. We see less than usual of Jane Marple as the story concentrates on the newlyweds, so that although enjoyable in itself, this is not the best Miss Marple mystery.
