What Poirot novels do you think would be better suited to Miss Marple?

  • I checked again: they meet in Dolly's garden. This is after MM meets Gwenda and then Giles in London, and before she goes to Dillmouth.

    Oh right, I shall make a point of noticing next time I read it.

    What about Poirot novels that T&T might enjoy detecting, and vice versa? I thought The Big Four was inherently T&T in its pieced-together conspiracy narrative, and I thought they would certainly enjoy the odd bit of detection in that. 

    By the Pricking 
    of my Thumbs would, I feel, have been rather enjoyable for either Poirot or Miss Marple (it is one of the only T&Ts, I think, where no conspiracy - either Nazi or spy - is a central part of the plot).

    I Don't Think By The Pricking of My Thumbs could have anybody but Tommy And Tuppence but I do think if Ariadne was with him N or M would have been good with Poirot and If The Lawrence from the JH Adaptation of Nemesis had been a recurring Character with Miss Marple N or M would be good for her there has to be a Male sleuth and a Feale sleuth so if not Lawrence maybe Miss Marple could team up with Race.

    Poor fluffy little Miss Marple didn't have enough grey cells (she had about half of what most people had plus her cells were decaying) to figure out what might have happened on the Nile- besides, she was so old and sensitive that a snake might have bitten her and died.

    @PoirotBabosaGalaxy, I'm afraid I must disagree with you there! Just because Miss Marple doesn't flaunt her abundance of little grey cells doesn't mean they aren't there - in fact, she is a highly intelligent and perceptive woman. As for the snake, no such poisonous snake is ever seen in "Death on the Nile" so I doubt Miss Marple would come across it if Poirot didn't...
