A Pocket Full of Rye - Agatha Christie

1953 - Published for The Crime Club by Collins, London - First Edition
‘A tear rose in Miss Marple’s eyes. Succeeding pity, there came anger- anger against a heartless killer. And then, displacing both these emotions, there came a surge of triumph - the triumph some specialist might feel who has successfully reconstructed an extinct animal from a fragment of jawbone and a couple of teeth.’

Yet another case opens up for our distinguished sleuth, when a murder spree befalls a wealthy but troubled family, and the death of an innocent maid Miss Marple knew as a child compels her to investigate. A cracking murder-mystery with everything from poisoned teacups to sinister nursery rhymes- that will keep you up well past a sensible hour.
