9780061003264: Nemesis

Nemesis -- one who inflicts retribution or justice -- seems an odd name for an elderly rather frail woman. But not if that old lady is the formidable Miss Jane Marple. Soon after the death of financier Rafiel, the man who called her by that name, Miss Marple is summoned by his solicitors, A letter from the grave sends her on a baffling quest -- to investigate an unidentified crime.

From the Back Cover:

In utter disbelief, Miss Marple read the letteraddressed to her from the recently deceasedMr. Rafiel—an acquaintance she had met brieflyon her travels. He had left instructions for her toinvestigate a crime after his death. The only problemwas, he had failed to tell her who was involved orwhere and when the crime had been committed.It was most intriguing.

Soon she is faced with a new crime—the ultimatecrime—murder. It seems someone is adamant thatpast evils remained buried. . . .

About the Author:

Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. Her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, written towards the end of the First World War, introduced us to Hercule Poirot, who was to become the most popular detective in crime fiction since Sherlock Holmes. She is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and another billion in over 100 foreign languages. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 19 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott.
