Not one of her greatest, nor worst. Weak mystery, a few good lines and a so-so atmosphere. ( )

The full cast audio recordings the BBC releases of these stories are the best. ( )

If you have to take a vacation in the sun, make sure you bring, A Caribbean Mystery with you.

The novel takes place in the Caribbean. Miss Marple's nephew Raymond (see The Thirteen Problems) sends her off for a rest after she has been ill.We have Miss Marple sitting next to a Major Palgrave who tends to go on about past adventures that she finds boring but listens to anyone. Mr. Palgrave ends up telling Miss Marple about having a picture of a murderer and then unexpectedly changes the subject when two couples they know approach. The following day Major Palgrave is found dead from what many believe is his high blood pressure. However, Miss Marple has her doubts about the Major's death and starts investigating.

I thought that this entire novel was very well done and we are introduced to some characters who will re-appear in subsequent Miss Marple novels such as Mr. Jason Rafiel (Nemesis).

I was also very happy that this novel is definitely showing Miss Marple at her best. A few of the older stories such as 4:50 from Paddington treated Miss Marple as a tertiary character. This novel has Miss Marple front and center and the reader actually gets to see how her mind works.

I am sad to see the end to my Miss Marple To Be Read 2014 pile but I already went ahead and finished reading At Betram's Hotel (loved it) and Nemesis (This one was probably a 3 star read to me due to certain comments made my Miss Marple and other characters about lesbianism and rape. I have really loved all of Agatha Christie's novels to date but this one was so antiquated about women being in love with one another and how most women grow out of it and decide to settle for a male and have children that I taken out of the story a bit just thinking about how old fashioned opinions like Miss Marple and others had in this novel).

In which a pleasant holiday unites Miss Marple with a gruff millionaire and a long-forgotten murder… which leads to a new one.

"A Caribbean Mystery" is a lesser Christie novel, barely worthy of praise. As with the loose-sequel, "Nemesis", this novel at least sees Miss Marple do a bit of investigating (which oddly doesn’t happen much in her better works), but the setting is about the only thing of interest here. The inimitable millionaire Jason Rafiel is a fascinating character, but he isn’t really connected to the murder in any useful way, so turns out to be neither here nor there. The rest of the characters are perfunctory and – while the actual solution is still surprising – we know from the start roughly where our suspicions should lie, so the playing field isn’t as wide as Christie would have us believe.

The Joan Hickson adaptation is quite varied in style, but ultimately is not one of my favourites – coming late in the series’ run, when even Hickson was tiring. (Understandably, as she was in her 80s!) I’d recommend starting with one of the early Marple novels, and leave this until you’re stuck somewhere on holiday. At least it will be thematic.

Marple Ranking: 12th out of 14 ( )

Miss Marple's nephew has kindly sent her to the Caribbean for a comfortable stay at resort. While Miss Marple isn't quite sure how she feels about the unvarying weather (how is one to start a conversation without the English weather to rely upon as a topic?), when one of the the other guests is found dead Miss Marple finds that her ability to understand personalities and motives works no matter where she is.

Regardless of where she is, spending time with Miss Marple is a reliably enjoyable experience. Even as she gets older and the definition of what's socially acceptable changes, she remains so sharp and never truly adrift. There are a couple moments of racism towards the locals, which are uncomfortable for a modern reader, but otherwise the novel holds up really well. A solid outing for the series. ( )
