Example text

Means an additional degree of success. The Murder of Roger Ackroyd is certainly one of Agatha Christie's most interesting and intriguing, as well as successful, mystery novels. WHAT MRS. McGILLICUDDY SAW! Agatha Christie 1957 Originally titled 4:50 from Paddington and serialized as Eye Witness to Murder, What Mrs. McGillicuddy Saw! features Miss Jane Marple, a little old lady who manages to get involved with murder investigations and solve the crime before the police do. Miss Marple is, of course, the other half of Agatha Christie's most renowned pair of detectives and she is as unlike Hercule Poirot as can be.

Whenever he discovers something which he senses is important, his face becomes blanker and more vacuous looking. Because he is so mild-mannered and because he generally works very indirectly, it seems as though he could never solve a case or reach a conclusion; his manner and method fool the criminal as well as the reader, and he does his job as a detective should do: He solves the crime, he reveals the criminal, and he restores society to tranquillity. com English society is Campion's usual milieu, and titles of various sorts appear frequently.

Then Campion's previously arranged charade to expose Paul would be, as it were, a confirmation. However, these clues are scattered through conversations that are primarily social, or surrounded by social activities; no one examines them carefully. In short, The Fashion in Shrouds gives the reader an opportunity equal to Campion's to solve the murders, especially those of PortlandSmith and Ramillies (if those are solved, that of Miss Adamson follows easily). There is one point, however, which is weak, and which the reader might well need special knowledge that most readers do not have: Exactly how does Paul's diabetes provide the undetectable method of murdering Ramillies?
