When her friends from the Tuesday Night Club visit Miss Marple's house, the conversation often turns to unsolved crimes. Trying to solve these 13 mysteries are Raymond West, a young writer; the artist Joyce Lemprière; Dr Pender, the clergyman, who claims to know the hidden side of human character; Mr Petherick, a lawyer who is only interested in the logical approach; and Sir Henry Clithering, whose experience as commissioner of Scotland Yard speaks for itself. Then, of course, there is Miss Marple, who has observed enough about human nature to be more than a match for the most perspicacious investigator.More
"The plots are so good that one marvels...most of them would have made a full-length thriller." (Daily Mirror)

Awesome Miss Marple Short Stories
Its a series of 13 short stories, expertly read by Joan Hickson (my favourite Miss Marple). Each story is the perfect length to listen to before bed, on the train, etc. Each keeps you on the edge of your seat wondering who-dunnit.
Yes, by having a series of short stories, so the suspense never lowers.
Joan Hickson's voice just epitomizes Miss Marple. But she's also a great actress who brings life to every character, and adds suspense and excitement through her voice.
A good selection for time poor people.
Classic Miss Marple
'The Thirteen Problems' is one of my favourite audio-books so far. The thirteen stories in this collection are Miss Marple at her best.
Agatha Christie really excelled at writing these type of stories, so all of the stories in this collection are very entertaining bite-sized mysteries.
I like short story collections as they are perfect for easy listening in short bursts.
Miss Marple of course!
Joan Hickson was Jane Marple in the 1980's BBC TV series, so having this great actress narrate these Miss Marple stories brings an authentic voice to the thirteen stories. She does a brilliant job voicing all of the characters in this audio-book, but Joan Hickson is Miss Marple as far as I am concerned.
These are Miss Marple stories where her shrewd intelligence and experience of human nature shine through, so nobody is supposed to surpass Jane Marple's clever way of solving problems... and nobody does.
A nice collection of mystery stories, that are very well written and very well performed.
