A Miss Marple MysteryBook - 2011
In Agatha Christie’s baffling detective story, Nemesis, a letter from a dead man instructs Miss Marple how to conduct an investigation into a puzzlingly unspecific crime.
In utter disbelief, Miss Marple read the letter addressed to her from the recently deceased Mr. Rafiel—an acquaintance she had met briefly on her travels. He had left instructions for her to investigate a crime after his death. The only problem was, he had failed to tell her who was involved or where and when the crime had been committed. It was most intriguing.
Soon she is faced with a new crime—the ultimate crime—murder. It seems someone is adamant that past evils remained buried. . . .

Any coincidence is worth noting. You can always throw it away later if it's only a coincidence.
Miss Marple: "I was talking to myself, I'm afraid. [...] I'm afraid one does at my age."
'D'you know,' said Miss Marple to herself, 'it's extraordinary I never thought about it before. I believe, you know, I could be ruthless...'
Miss Marple: If you expect me to feel sympathy, regret, urge an unhappy childhood, blame bad environment; if you expect me in fact to weep over him, this young murderer of yours, I do not feel inclined so to do. I do not like evil beings who do evil things.
Professor Wanstead: Girls are said to mature earlier. That is physically true, though in a deeper sense of the word, they mature late. They remain childish longer [...]. They wish not to become adult--not to have to accept our kind of responsibility. And yet, like all children, they want to be thought grown-up and free to do what they think are grown-up things.
