I can see why this story is a favorite not only to others I believe toAgatha Christie herself. The story I think you can see happening today. Of course with some time changes.
I have noticed especially with A Murder is Announced that Miss Marple doesn’t come into the story til midway. This way the story builds to where Miss Marple needs to help.
What an ingenious thing to do to put an announcement in newspaper about a murder (like a play).
Poor Miss Blacklock someone is trying to murder her? Or Murder the others that live around her? Is it/will it be the Colonel, Philippe, Edward, or his mother, Mitzi, or poor Dora?
Miss Blacklock had no money.Although was going to inherit someday. So to stage a murder took some doing. Somehow a murder did happen but not what we though.Something to throw us all off.
There were some twists and turns that surely I didn’t know Marple.In his own defense it’s hard to admit n older person especially a woman has clues before him. She did have some ideas and eventually Craddock was on board with.
Oh wow we find that Miss Blacklock had a sister. Was that sister there with Blacklock, or was she gone somewhere? Is this the key to what events happened?
I think A Murder is Announced is one of my favorite Miss Marple books so far. I will be looking forward to reading more of Miss Marple!
I give A Murder is Announced 5
