A Pocket Full of Rye by Agatha Christie - Book 84, 2009

Title: A Pocket Full of Rye by Agatha Christie
Rating: 8.5/10
Plot description: From Amazon
When an unpleasant businessman is taken ill at his London office and subsequently dies of taxine poisoning, authorities discover a house full of likely suspects: a young, sexy wife having an affair; a money grubbing son worried about his father's management of the family business; an angry daughter frustrated in love by her father's control. But no sooner do police suspicions begin to form around one of the three than murder strikes again--and then again--in such a way as to leave them baffled. Enter, of course, Miss Marple, who sets about uncovering a killer who may be a psychotic that is killing victims in accordance with the old "Sing a Song of Sixpence" nursery rhyme.
Comments: An enjoyable and easy read - classic Christie with an enjoyable twist at the end.
