Mini-Review: The Moving Finger (Miss Marple #4) by Agatha Christie

3729493

HMMMM…In a recent review of a Poirot mystery, I said that I thought Christie may have begun writing the novel as a stand alone and then added Poirot as a character in the later stages.  I felt the exact same way with The Moving Finger.  Miss Marple makes her first appearance on page 142 out of 200.  She plays a very minor role.  What’s interesting to me is that the story worked very well as a stand alone and would have been fine without her presence. I wonder why she decided to bring her in.

Regardless, it’s another great Christie mystery.  4/5 stars.
