The iconic Miss Marple must investigate the case of a girl found dead in Agatha Christie's classic mystery, The Body in the Library.

It's seven in the morning. The Bantrys wake to find the body of a young woman in their library. She is wearing an evening dress and heavy makeup, which is now smeared across her cheeks. But who is she? How did she get there? And what is the connection with another dead girl, whose charred remains are later discovered in an abandoned quarry?

The respectable Bantrys invite Miss Marple into their home to investigate. Amid rumors of scandal, she baits a clever trap to catch a ruthless killer.

The Agatha Christie books are always a little difficult to get through, being that they were written so long ago, but nevertheless, these murder mysteries are always original, unique, and unpredictable. Throughout this book, I literally thought 3 different people could have been the murderer, and that everyone was suspicious. Agatha Christie is definitely one of the best murder mystery writers of all time- you'll never know who done it. This book had an ending I never would have expected, but was incredibly clever.
