This is always a favorite of Agatha Christie's novels, always a mystery, and starring the character of Miss Jane Marple.

Miss Jane Marple is planning on a beautiful vacation in London at the hotel. She is just about to start her good time, when she notices lots of the people who work at the hotel as well as some of the guests are behaving very strangely. Sure enough, one of the doormen is murdered mysteriously.  Miss Jane Marple is on the case again! However, this time she needs help. A lot of help!

It isn't long before Miss Jane Marple enlists the help of Chief Inspector Davey. even though Davey is super busy trying to figure out a whole string of robberies, he is happy to help. Both of them solve the case together and the doorman's murderer is discovered.

In conclusion, we can say that this is not one of Agatha Christie's best murder mysteries. It is read over and over again by many readers.the character is giving a vastly different voice, and readers can figure out exactly who is saying what just by looking at the vernacular that Christie uses.
