The Body In The Library

So I know I said I would be reading The Cat Who... books, but alas. As I mentioned in my last review, I've also developed a liking for Agatha Christie. So my May book for the Cozy Mystery Challenge is The Body In the Library by Agatha Christie.

I really enjoyed this book. There were so many suspects and so many motives, it really kept me guessing. Basically, the story starts out when a body is found in the library of Colonel Bantry. The victim is a heavily made-up fake blonde who has been strangled. In order to clear the name of her husband, who is the most immediate suspect, Mrs. Bantry enlists the aid of Miss Marple to solve the mystery.

There are a whole lot of twists and turns during the course of the book, but I don't want to give away anything, just in case there is someone out there who has never read it. If this is the case, I suggest you go out and find a copy. This is a great book.
