Miss Marple #5 – Murder With Mirrors by Agatha Christie (Pocket 1021 – 1954)

“I haven’t done badly out of marriage,” said Ruth Van Rydock, “take it by and large.”

Miss Jane Marple thought Ruth was putting it mildly. Ruth had been married three times, each time to an extremely wealthy man, and the resultant divorces had increased her bank balance without in the least souring her disposition.

“Of course,” said Mrs. van Rydock, “I’ve always been tough. I’ve not expected too much at life – or of men – and I’ve done very well out of it, and no hard feelings. That’s why I want you to visit Carrie Louise – she’s always had a tendency to marry cranks!”

And that’s how shrewd Jane Marple came to visit Stonygates, where two hundred-odd juvenile delinquents were no problem at all, but a half-dozen members of a wealthy family were intimately connected with murder!
