"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"--Page [4] of cover.
