A satisfying conclusion
23 May 2020 | by Pegasus-10See all my reviews

Miss Marple jumps to extraordinary conclusions to piece together the motive behind the deaths of the two young women and it's all wrapped up in the end when she explains to her less-astute friends all the clues they could also have interpreted to identify the killer. Happily the screenplay sticks close to the solution that Christie concocted for her book, although it leaves out a few minor details about the future in store for some of those in Jefferson's orbit.
