Publisher's Summary

Lymstock is a town with more than its share of shameful secrets - a town where even a sudden outbreak of anonymous hate mail causes only a minor stir.
But all that changes when one of the recipients, Mrs. Symmington, commits suicide. Her final note says "I can’t go on", but Miss Marple questions the coroner's verdict of suicide. Soon nobody is sure of anyone - as secrets stop being shameful and start becoming deadly.

My favorite Miss Marple Mystery

Would you listen to The Moving Finger again? Why?

Yes, The story line, characters and superb reading by Richard Grant make this an audiobook I would listen to again.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The Moving Finger could almost be considered a stand-along book by Christie, as Miss Marple does not appear until Chapter 10. The characters were engaging, the story had more going on than just the murder mystery, and I found it quite enjoyable.

What does Richard E. Grant bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His voice is perfection. He narrates quite well and does each of the different voices in a pleasant manner. Richard Grant does such an excellent job that I would actually seek out more audiobooks read by him.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The sweet romance between the main character/narrator Jerry and Megan. I really enjoy when there are interesting side stories going on within the main plot.

Richard E Grant is marvelous!

The classic mystery that introduced the world to Miss Marple, given just the right touch by the charming, sly and irresistible Richard E Grant. A wonderful way to rediscover an old favorite.
