Marple in the Mirror

They Do It with Mirrors (Miss Marple, #6)They Do It with Mirrors by Agatha Christie
Reviewed by Jason Koivu
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a very strong 3 stars as I quite enjoyed this Agatha Christie quickie!

Having said that, They Do It with Mirrors reads like a Christie-by-numbers novel, written by rote like a facsimile of previous work with just a few of the words rearranged. The characters, the setting, the plot and the outcome, it's all been done before.

I haven't read too many Miss Marple's. The old dear and the settings/situations she's placed in are quite quaint and not entirely my cup of tea. Having said that, I wouldn't say no to further Miss Marples. Reading this series is like spending time with a clever granny, and who doesn't need some of that in their lives?!

They Do It with Mirros may not be one of Christie's absolute best, but it works and should satisfy most mystery readers.
