About This Item

Spine slightly slanted, a bit creased, reading crease, minor edge wear. Light tanning. Overall a nice copy. ;
Dell 5861, 2nd Dell printing. ; Miss Marple; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall; 189 pages;

"The placid village of Lymstock seemed the perfect place for Jerry Burton to recuperate from his accident under the care of his sister, Joanna. Then the poison pen letter arrived, viciously alleging illicit sexual activity between Jerry and Joanna. Even more shocking, obscene mail had been turning up all over the village. When a suicide results, the town is thrown into shock. The vicar, the doctor, the servants are all on the verge of accusing one another, when help arrives from an unexpected quarter. The vicar's houseguest is none other than the spinster detective, Miss Jane Marple." .


The Moving Finger is detective fiction novel by Agatha Christie, first published in the US by Dodd, Mead and Company in July 1942 and in UK by the Collins Crime Club in June 1943. The US edition retailed at $2.00 and the UK edition at seven shillings and sixpence (7/6). It features the elderly detective Miss Marple in a minor, deus ex machina-like role, appearing more than halfway through and in only a handful of scenes.
