Publisher's Summary

In utter disbelief, Miss Marple read the letter addressed to her from the recently deceased Mr Rafiel, an acquaintance she had met briefly on her travels.Recognising in Miss Marple a natural flair for justice, Mr Rafiel had left instructions for her to investigate a crime after his death. The only problem was, he had failed to tell her who was involved or where and when the crime had been committed. It was most intriguing.

Good reading

I first heard of this book as a Marple episode. The book was a lot better.

My Favourite!

Really, what could be better than this fantastic story read by the great Joan Hickson. For me, no one comes close to Joan Hickson as Miss Marple in the TV series and equally here her reading of Agatha Christie. This has to be my favourite Agatha Christie of all time, so this, combined with great narration is perfect. Enjoy!

What made the experience of listening to Nemesis the most enjoyable?

The narration by Joan Hickson - she's the definitive Miss Marple.

What other book might you compare Nemesis to, and why?

No comparison.

Have you listened to any of Joan Hickson’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes, quite a few.

Any additional comments?

This is different to other Miss Marple books, in that she doesn't know what crime she has to investigate, but I like the way Rafiel has organised things beforehand, where various facts will gradually, in various steps, be revealed. One member has commented on the quality of this book. This is not the best recorded book on CD, so it is not Audible's fault. We need to remember that a great number of books on this site have been submitted by other sites, such as Harper Collins, Naxos, BBC, etc.
