Listen to the latest Tea Reads here.
For the first Tea Reads of the Autumn Season, I’ve chosen a perfect cosy mystery. The Four Suspects by Agatha Christie is one of my favourite Miss Marple short stories. I always think of it this time of year when dahlias are in bloom all over the UK, because Miss Marple solves the mystery partly because of her knowledge of the different varieties of dahlias.
The Four Suspects shows Christie at her very best, with all her classic hallmarks:
a seemingly impossible conundrum, baffled professionals and a quietly confident amateur sleuth, complete with her knitting needles.
