November 2012 Guest Editor Kate Mosse on Sleeping Murder...

No list would be complete without the Queen of Crime herself. I first stumbled upon Christie on a wet teenage family holiday.  Her characterisation, her neat and slick plotting, the way she summons up a sense of place and period. This is one of my favourites, the last Miss Marple, a tale of old secrets and long shadows.

Sleeping Murder Synopsis

The owner of a seaside villa is plagued by strange feelings about its past! Soon after Gwenda moved into her new home, odd things started to happen. Despite her best efforts to modernise the house, she only succeeded in dredging up its past. Worse, she felt an irrational sense of terror every time she climbed the stairs! In fear, Gwenda turned to Miss Marple to exorcise her ghosts. Between them, they were to solve a 'perfect' crime committed many years before.
