VOK 732 – Agatha Christie Minipod 11 – The Murder At The Vicarage


In this spoiler-free episode Bina007 reviews the first Mrs Marple novel, Murder At The Vicarage, originally published in 1930. This is the novel people think Christie always writes! A pretty English village and the narrator is a clergyman and the victim is a retired military man. But the novel is actually spikier, nastier and more subversive than the chocolate-box cosy image. A spoiler-filled discussion of the solution is after the closing music.
