Award-winning literary historian Peter Keating examines that bond in Agatha Christie and Shrewd Miss Marple, revealing the range and variety of the Miss Marple novels, linking them to Christie’s life and, in what is a highly unusual approach for a study of this most misunderstood of novelists, placing them tellingly within their historical context.

Keating gives a positive account of Christie’s literary aims, draws attention to her creative interest in Freud and Shakespeare, and offers some challenging new interpretations of individual novels. Miss Marple herself emerges with a revitalized image and, as a bonus, a few mysteries about her personality and her famous home village of St. Mary Mead are unexpectedly solved.
