An old-fashioned London Hotel is not quite as reputable as it makes out… When Miss Marple comes up from the country for a holiday in London, she finds what she’s looking for at Bertram’s Hotel: traditional decor, impeccable service and an unmistakable atmosphere of danger behind the highly polished veneer. Yet, not even Miss Marple can foresee the violent chain of events set in motion when an eccentric guest makes his way to the airport on the wrong day…

Thank you for sending me this book from my wishlist. I have been a fan of Agatha Christie almost as long as I have been a fan of reading.

As good as any Agatha Christie's mysteries. I enjoyed this one a lot.

I thought I'd received all the tea and mystery sweep books but I must have miscounted as this arrived today! Another perfect choice, an Agatha Christie that I haven't read and haven't got!! Thank you for sending this and for the lovely selection of teas (the maple ones smell amazing!) and labels.

Thank you even more for organising this round of the sweep and for keeping me on track with the etiquette as a new participant. All much appreciated.

At Bertram's Hotel by Agatha Christie - Good

I needed something lightweight, in both senses, to read whilst running round the Festival and this fitted the bill admirably.

Miss Marple is visiting London for a break and staying at Bertram's Hotel. A lovely Edwardian hotel, still living up to those standards... but it is now the swinging sixties. Just how and why is this pretence going on?

Meanwhile the police are scratching their heads about a series of major robberies/heists. When an absent minded clergyman goes missing from Bertram's and is seen nearby one of these heists..... Could there be a link?

Totally different from the TV version, Miss Marple really isn't at the forefront of the story - she's just the watchful eyes and listening ears that piece everything together and help the Police come to the right conclusions.

Picked up at the meetup, thanks.
Update: enjoyable as ever. It’s the first time I’ve read an Agatha Christie book where I remember an event mentioned in it - The Great Train Robbery.

Not picked up at the meetup and we couldn't leave books behind this month because of their Christmas decorations, so it slipped into my bag.
