The Body in the Library by Agatha Christie

The Body in the Library by Agatha Christie a "cheap looking blonde" is discovered murdered in a library. It's up to Miss Marple to solve the case. This is my third Christie mystery I've read recently. I suppose I was about do for a dud. There is a little too much hand wringing about kids today and the evils of Hollywood. The mystery is dealt with in the usual competent manner. There are just enough red herrings to keep the reader guessing. I just found some of the characterization to be irritating. Particularly the wheelchair-bound wealthy businessman. Still better then most of the stuff being published today.

Mildly recommended.

Is available through Abebooks.
