“They Do It with Mirrors” is a mystery novel written by Agatha Christie, first published in 1952. The story revolves around the life of Amy Leatherane, a wealthy woman who is disliked by her family. Amy’s husband, Bill, is a successful businessman, and they live in a luxurious house in London.
The novel begins with Amy being found dead in her home, and her family is shocked by the news. The police suspect that her death is a result of suicide, but her brother-in-law, Charles, is convinced that there is more to it than meets the eye. He hires private detective Jason Rafiel to investigate Amy’s death.
As Jason delves deeper into the case, he discovers that Amy had been leading a double life. She was involved in a scandalous affair with a man named Nicholas, who was later found dead in his apartment. Jason also learns that Amy had a long-lost twin sister, who was believed to have died in childhood.
With the help of Amy’s sister, Helen, Jason uncovers a web of lies, betrayal, and secrets that ultimately lead to the revelation of the true culprit behind the murders. The story unfolds through a series of flashbacks and reveals the complex relationships between the characters and the dark secrets they kept hidden.
In the end, Jason is able to solve the case and bring the truth to light. The novel showcases Agatha Christie’s signature style of weaving a complex mystery with intricate plot twists and well-developed characters.
In Agatha Christie’s They Do It with Mirrors, the indomitable Miss Marple investigates some rather dangerous activities at a rehabilitation center for criminals.
Miss Marple senses danger when she visits a friend who lives at Stoneygates, a rehabilitation center for criminals. Her fears were confirmed when someone shot at the administrator. Although uninjured, a mysterious guest was less lucky – shot dead simultaneously in another part of the building.
Pure coincidence? Miss Marple doesn’t think so, and must use all her wits to solve the mystery of the stranger’s visit… and his murder.
This is not one of Miss Marple’s best books. The mystery is Ok and there is a large enough cast of characters to provide plenty of red herrings, but most of the detective work is done by the actual police. Finally, Miss Marple steps in to give the officers some guidance as to who the murderer might be but this is not the satisfactory discovery she makes in some of her other books. In this novel, she seemed more like a guest star than a main character and I found that disappointing. The puzzle is adequate, not as good as some of Miss Marple’s other books, but it serves the purpose. If you’re a fan then this book will complete the collection but it’s not the best novel to start with if you’re just starting to read about the character.
