5.0 out of 5 stars Miss Riddell does it again!

I grew up on Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple books. So why is it I never wondered what Miss Marple was like in her youth? P.C. James answers my question with the Miss Riddell series, and the latest, The Past Never Dies, delivers. Pauline Riddell is sharp. She is curious, maybe a bit nosey, but she gets the job done. This latest book challenges some of her beliefs, but will Miss Riddell persevere and discover who is behind the murder? Will she find the lost relic? Grab a cup of tea and enjoy the mystery.

Ever wonder about the early days of Miss Marple? This is the sophisticated third outing for Miss Riddell (in her chronological history), and shows her development as an amateur sleuth.

P.C. James does a masterful job of brining 1950’s northern England to life as Miss Riddell continues to grow as an amateur sleuth, enjoying the puzzle-solving complexities of this latest case while she struggles to balance other areas of her life… like her day job, and the demands of her reporter friend, Poppy. This cozy mystery will have you guessing whodunnit until the very end.
