Sleeping Murder

Standard
Sleeping Murder

By Agatha Christie (1976)

Despite her best efforts to modernise her new home, Gwenda soon finds herself caught up in the past. When odd things begin to happen, she develops an irrational sense of terror, leaving her unable to even climb the stairs without feeling petrified. Distraught, Gwenda turns to Jane Marple to exorcise her ghosts. Can they solve a ‘perfect’ crime committed many years ago?

This story talks about a brother’s mad love for his half sister. He adored his half sister, and that affection became possessive and unwholesome. Ms Maple said that this kind of thing happens oftener than you’d think. Fathers who don’t want their daughters to marry – or even to meet young men.

Ms Maple also said that it is dangerous to believe people.

This is not one of my favourite novel, its quite ordinary and not that engaging as compared to other Agatha Christie’s books.
