A Caribbean Mystery clearly a mystery by the ever so classic Agatha Christie – I do really recommend this book, or any other. It is one of the few Miss Marple Mysteries, who is the protagonist in the book. In this novel, she is in the West Indies, a series of Islands taking a break, as a grandmother in need of more sun than Southern England offers should. She is offered to see a snapshot of a murder, but she unfortunately does not, and after this the nice man who offered her this, is murdered.
This is a book full of suspects and questions urging you to read more. It does have a slow start, yet once past this it is hard to put down. The text is only some 200 pages, therefore not too much of a strenuous read, and great for long plane flights or bus rides.

This book received 4 out of 5 stars on Goodreads.
