"For the first time in forty-five years, Agatha Christie's legendary sleuth Jane Marple returns to solve twelve baffling cases penned by a host of acclaimed authors skilled in the fine art of mystery and murder. In St. Mary Mead, a Christmas dinner is interrupted by unexpected guests; the Broadway stage in New York City is set for a dangerous improvisation; bad omens surround an untimely death aboard a cruise ship to Hong Kong; and a bestselling writer on holiday in Italy is caught in a nefarious plot. These and other crimes committed in the name of love, jealousy, blackmail, and revenge are ones that only the indomitable Jane Marple can solve. A triumphant celebration of Christie's legacy and essential reading for crime lovers, Marple is a timely reminder of why Jane Marple remains one of the most famous detectives of all time." -- From publisher's description.

*Starred Review* Twelve contemporary authors, all acclaimed crime writers, bring Agatha Christie's beloved Miss Jane Marple to print for the first time in 45 years, beautifully reinvigorating one of mystery fiction's most enduring sleuths. As Alyssa Cole puts it in Miss Marple Takes Manhattan, one of the volume's highlights, Miss Marple was always supposed to be in one place, as if she were a candlestick or a sofa cushion; however, she has the oddest habit of ending up exactly where she wanted to be instead. And so it is here, with Marple in New York in the 1950s, attending the dress rehearsal of a play based on a novel by her nephew, Raymond, who is appalled to learn that the play will be staged not on Broadway but on West Broadway, in a production directed by a blacklisted director. Aunt Jane is fine with all that but quickly senses that something is rotten in the wilds of downtown. So it is as well when she cruises to Hong Kong (The Jade Empress, by Jean Kwok) and shrewdly susses out two shipboard murders. The stories set in Marple's beloved St. Mary MeadâVal McDermid's The Second Murder at the Vicarage and Ruth Ware's Miss Marple's Christmas among themâare equally attuned to our heroine's wry sagacity and to her ability to detect evil intent wherever it lurks, including under the mistletoe. A thoroughly entertaining collection for all Christie devotees.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Combining the enduring appeal of Miss Marple with some of today's most popular mystery writers could hardly go wrong, and it doesn't here.
