Jane Marple, assisted by her nephew Raymond West, concludes that the case must be related to that of Verity Hunt, a young woman who in 1939 was running away from an overattentive landlord and eventually disappeared. When a member of the tour dies mysteriously, she also realizes that someone is desperate to keep a deep, dark secret.

A CARIBBEAN MYSTERY As Jane Marple sat basking in the tropical sunshine she felt mildly discontented with life. True, the warmth eased her rheumatism but here in paradise nothing ever happened. Then a question was put to her by a stranger, Major Palgrave: "Would you like to see a picture of a murderer?"

In this installment of the Miss Marple series, Miss Marple has been given a rather unique mystery to solve: one with very little details or clues. To begin, she has to figure out exactly what it is that needs to be solved, and then proceed. She is given details and notes from the late Mr. Rafiel which direct her somewhat, but she has to trust her own intuition to figure out what course of action to take. Mr. Rafiel has provided her the opportunity to go on a tour of famous British houses, and this is where small clues and ideas begin to form. There are fourteen other people on the tour with her, and she begins to take inventory of who they are. Little by little, small hints reveal themselves to her, and she begins to form a small idea of Rafiel’s intentions. When a mysterious “accident” happens, she tries to piece together who did it, and, furthermore, why it was done. She must discover who are friends, and who are enemies, in order to see this mystery solved.

As usual with Christie, a very enjoyable read. That being said, I tend to like the Poirot mysteries a little better, and it was a little bit of a slow crawl the first portion of the book. For that reason, I don’t think Nemesis quite ranks with some of Christie’s top notch mysteries. Definitely a little darker than most of her work.

On one hand, Agatha Christie's 1971 "Miss Marple" novel, "Nemesis: A Miss Marple Mystery (Miss Marple Mysteries Book 12)," is one of the best "Miss Marple" books she wrote. On the other hand, it suffers from a pretty big deficiency in the mystery surrounding the actual, original, murder. Starting with the positive, the mystery surrounding what Miss Marple's supposed to be doing in this book is excellent. It's very well written and interesting. Moving on to the less-than-stellar aspect, once things get going, the final result becomes pretty obvious. But, who knows, maybe I've just grown accustomed to how Christie writes these things. And then the negative. This book was first published in 1971. At that time, things like birth certificates, photographs, footprints, fingerprints, and dental records existed and were used by the police. Difficulty in identifying bodies should not be as important as described here. It weakens the story. Still the story is well done and enjoyable. So, I'm rating the book at a Very Good 4 stars out of 5.

This story picks up where A Caribbean Mystery left off. Miss Marple's collaborator in that mystery sends her a mysterious letter asking her to solve a mystery, but gives her no clues. The gentleman has died and wants Miss Marple's help putting the scales of justice back in balance. She will inherit a substantial sum of money from him if she can solve the case. She is sent on a mysterious bus tour of English historic homes and gardens with a group of fellow tourists one of whom is murdered. Miss Marple is on her own, so she thinks. A great mystery by the Queen of Mystery writers.

In Greek mythology Nemesis is the goddess of vengeance or retribution. It is she who brings it down on those who have done evil deeds. "Nemesis" also is the name given by the character 'Mr. Rafiel' to Agatha Christie's Miss Marple in a murder mystery written previous to this book <Nemesis>. Miss Jane Marple had asked the very rich Mr. Rafiel for help, which he gave.

But now word has come to Miss Marple that Mr. Rafiel has died. Before dying he left murky directions asking Miss Marple for her help in a mysterious quest that was important to him. Miss Marple sets off on her mission and the remainder of the book tells the reader step by step how her new quest is clarified and carried out. It is well worth reading.

This reviewer who has read perhaps forty of Christie's books, found <Nemesis> to be one of my favorites. Characters and scenes are formed with her usual skills. The Miss Marple I envision while reading that series is the one portrayed by actress Joan Hixon a few decades ago in a fine Public TV series. (There have been several Miss Marples since Hixon's, but Hixon's is the best).

I read the book Nemesis to compare it to the movies done starring Joan Hickson and Geraldine McEwan, which were so vastly different. I think the movie with Joan Hickson kept more closely to the book. In comparing the 3, the book, and the 2 movies, I do prefer the book. Concerning the movies, I am not disappointed with the acting of Geraldine McEwan and the cast of that interpretation, but I am partial to Joan Hickson as Miss Marple. All of Agatha Christie's writings are exceptional in my opinion and for Mystery lovers they should be a staple. I get such pleasure from reading them over and over.

Suffers a little bit from the values of the time it was written in, but it's a great puzzle, and interesting portrayal of characters. I had never thought of Marple as being implacable to this extent, but she is.

And the BBC version with Donald Pleasance is different, and fabulous.
