The Body in the Library - Agatha Christie

I love the reveal on this one! So well done!

 

We have Colonel and Dolly Bantry needing Miss Marple's help when a body is found in their library. Dolly knows her husband has nothing to do with it, but dealing with gossips in the village can kill their social standing and Dolly wants Jane Marple to go sleuthing. Miss Marple and Dolly end up traveling away from St. Mary's Mead to a hotel called the Majestic. The police have identified the body as a young dancer who worked at the hotel who had caught the eye of a dying millionaire (as one does) whose family was not enthused about the relationship. 

What I loved is that I guessed wrong and Christie throws a wrench into the works when another body is found. The police are now concerned a mad man is killing young women. I honestly didn't guess right the first time reading this one and loved the re-read. So good!
