There are few characters that can match the fame of Agatha Christie’s iconic Jane Marple – best known as “Miss Marple” – in the world of detective fiction. For many people, the elderly citizen living in the sleepy village of St. Mary Mead, is every bit as amazing as her creator’s other great detective, Hercule Poirot, solving crimes with a mix of cunning and charm. Christie wrote twenty short stories featuring Miss Marple in her life. Now, imagine if you could get them all -as well as another thirty-odd Christie stories -for as little as Rs 14?
Well, that is exactly what Kindle users in India are getting. And this is no ramshackle collection that is poorly presented and edited but one that comes from one of the world’s leading publishers HarperCollins, with text to speech enabled for good measure. Let’s repeat that – every Miss Marple short story out there and dozens of others by Agatha Christie, spanning more than seven hundred pages, from one of the world’s leading publishers. Yours for Rs 14.
