While visiting her friend Dermot in Little Ambrose, Miss Marple is drawn into investigating the death of Eddie Seward, whom she'd met on the bus and who is found having apparently drowned in the river.Within a few days however, there is a second suspicious death, that of Mary Pritchard who seems to have died from fright. She was disliked by many and had recently caused a scene when her husband George was inaugurated as the Captain of the local golf club. Even Dermot disliked her as did her sister Philippa, who was once engaged to George, whom she described as the love of her life. Phillipa ended up marrying George's brother, Lewis Pritchard, and they are constantly having money problems. A third death - this time one of George Pritchard's former mistresses - convinces Inspector Somerset that George, who conveniently confesses, is the murderer. Miss Marple thinks otherwise and sets out to prove it. Written by garykmcd

Miss Marple saves Captain Flint
20 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

Miss Marple is visiting a friend in the village of Little Ambrose. On the bus there she meets a young man, Eddie Seward, and finds him intelligent and sensitive company. However, a few days later, Eddie Seward is found dead on the banks of the river near the golf club, and it looks like murder. A short time after that, the most disliked woman in the village, Mary Pritchard, is found dead, poisoned. There are several suspects but her husband, George, eventually confesses to the crime. He is due to be sentenced when Miss Marple realises that he isn't the murderer and races to prevent him from being found guilty.

Reasonably intriguing. The usual blandness from Miss Marple but the murder is a good mystery, with some good twists and red herrings. Some good sub-plots too.

Supporting cast includes Tony Stephens.
