Review by Library Journal Review
Jane Marple would make a good librarian. Not only does she seem genuinely to enjoy people, but she is also an expert at ferreting out information. As the latest Miss Marple, veteran actress Julia McKenzie contributes her considerable acting skills to this new series, and, of course, the tweedy sleuth in sensible shoes manages to find the truth-and the murderer-in each of these four Christie adaptations (A Pocket Full of Rye, Murder Is Easy, They Do It with Mirrors, and Why Didn't They Ask Evans?). Dead bodies, long-held resentments, and dark secrets are the bread and butter of the stories, and Christie fans won't be disappointed. Extras include actress/author biographies and a photo gallery. Recommended for viewers who love British mysteries.-Joan Greenberg, Warminster, PA (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
