During the war, houses were demolished on the right of it, and a little farther down on the left of it, but Bertram’s itself remained unscathed. Naturally it could not escape being, as house agents would say, scratched, bruised and marked, but by the expenditure of only a reasonable amount of money it was restored to its original condition.

Trying to work out some sort of consistent rating system for my current Christie binge. Some I clearly remember the twists, and can see them coming, but am still blown away by how she gets there, those are easy, her five star classics. Some are clunkers that barely held my interest the first time I read them, 30 years ago. Those can go as low as two stars, since there is always some merit to the full-fledged stories. It's just the middling ones three to four that leave me unsure. I didn't remember enough about this one to remember who ended up being the baddie or final victim (not a spoiler, as the Christies with only a single murder victim are few and far between, outside of the short stories). Think I got it partly confused with another one where the lead goes to an island/resort locale. But, it had all the elements that make Christie fun, the old soldier, the clergyman and family, and what I've taken to calling Marplimony - marriages that only seem to exist for the sake of driving a minor plot point.

It was fun, and the interaction with Mr. Rafiel was great, makes me sad that this is the only time we meet him before his end in the last Marple. But, nothing really special, and I'll probably forget which of the couples holds the black widow by the time I get a hankering to work my way through some Christies again. Oh well, that's not such a bad thing, do enjoy sometimes being surprised by a book I've read before, even if it means that it was one of the more mediocre ones.

Agatha Christie published her first mystery in 1920 and the last two were published after her death in 1976. That's a long run in anyone's terms. Most people feel that she hit her peak in the 30's and 40's. I think that some of her very late books are weak, but this is one of my favorites. It's not just a mystery, but a look at ageing and at how we deal (or refuse to deal) with change.

Like Christie herself, Miss Jane Marple is a product of the Edwardian Era. Like all older people everywhere at every time, she spends a great deal of time thinking about the past. But the shrewd Miss Marple never LIVES in the past. She knows better. The discovery that Bertram's Hotel in London is run in such a way that makes the customers feel that they have stepped back in time fifty years is at first a delightful surprise. And the management has a smooth, believable explanation for it all.

But Miss Marple doesn't believe in miracles and she's as suspicious as ever. IF SOMETHING SEEMS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, IT PROBABLY IS! That's her motto and she applies it to Bertram's Hotel as she has applied it to everything and everyone that she's encountered in her long life. Miss Marple is hard to fool and so is Chief Inspector Davy of Scotland Yard - an old-style copper who's known to his colleagues as "Father." These old folks are easy to underestimate, but you do so at your own risk.

It is 1965 and crime (as Miss Marple) observes disapprovingly) seems to have gotten above itself. Even in her old age, Christie was keenly aware of what was going on and the "Great Train Robbery" in 1963 had shocked the British to the core. Now audacious robberies are taking place all over the British Isles and Scotland Yard is seeing similarities and wondering if a single, brilliant mind is pulling the strings. But who could it be and where is the gang's headquarters?

This is a delightful read and brings home the truth that society is constantly changing, but human nature remains the same.

It's hard to constructively complain about a murder mystery book. Agatha Christie's 1964 novel "A Caribbean Mystery: A Miss Marple Mystery (Miss Marple Mysteries Book 10)" is written fairly decently, but suffers from two issues. First, there are just too many red herrings here. You can barely swing a cat in the book without hitting some ne'er-do-well in the head. But, of course, Christie's using that to hide the real perpetrator. That leads to the bigger problem: from some of the key "evidence" we're given, it just seems like the bad person is too young for what's happened. It would be a spoiler for me to say anything more. But, I just wasn't happy with whodunit. So, I'm rating the book at an OK 3 stars out of 5.

Attention Philip K. Dick fans: Perhaps you never read Agatha Christie mysteries. But I consider At Bertram's Hotel to be her PKDickish novel. Read Dick's Time Out of Joint; then read At Bertram's Hotel. You'll see the connection. Looking at the writings of the two novelists more broadly, each was concerned with inversions of reality; things are never what they seem. The only difference is that Christie writes to restore the proper order of things, while Dick says there is no proper order. But, oh, would I love to be a guest in Bertram's Hotel, if only to drink the tea and eat those muffins that drip butter down one's shirt. Next to Nemesis, At Bertram's Hotel is my favorite Miss Marple novel, and that is saying a lot.

How can you rate Agatha Christie any other way than 5 stars? And how can you say her writing is anything but great? That said, I really loved the story, especially since I have never seen it in TV. It is suspense full, has some humor, and unfolds in the later years of Mrs. Marble, when she has to deal with "modern times" on top of trying to catch a killer. I still prefer her earlier adventures, but I can recommend this novel to anybody who likes crime mysteries.

Jane Marple goes to the Caribbean Islands on vacation, where sunny days, gossip and funny dinners in good companies happens. Unfortunately (or fortunately!?) murders also happens. So there goes Miss Marple, a little bit slow in the beginning but in full display of her wisdom as the plot advances. In this story, Marple is presenting since the beginning, giving the reader the basics insights about the characters. Discover the murder isn't an easy task (for me is always seems impossible) but Miss Marple delivers. An entertaining book!
