      Over the years I’ve read all of Agatha Christie’s mystery books, some of them several times. Despite this, every once and awhile I pull one out of the basement and read it.

      It’s almost like comfort food, especially those books featuring Miss Jane Marple.

      “At Bertram’s Hotel” by Agatha Christie


      is a perfect example of the cozy mystery.

      Miss Marple is offered a vacation to Bournmouth by her niece and nephew.

      Although she is grateful for the offer, she opts to visit Bertram’s hotel, place she had visited when she was 14, about fifty-five years ago.

      On the surface the ...


      • hotel had retained all of the charm of the Edwardian hotel Miss Marple remembered from her youth, but soon Miss Marple begins to recognize that something is different: something is wrong.

        Soon an absentminded canon goes missing and a doorman is murdered.

        The resulting investigation reveals that Miss Marple’s sense

        of something wrong is correct.

        Bertram’s had been used for illegal purposes for several years.

        I won’t tell you more than that because I hope you’ll read this book and others of Christie as well.

        Miss Marple is a nearly perfect dithering elderly woman and her interactions with crime are priceless.

        Highly recommended.
