** In fairness, ''Nemesis'' is an intentional sequel to ''A Caribbean Mystery'', since Mr Rafiel hires her in his will on the strength of the mystery he saw her solve.

The reason that Poirot allowed the killer to commit suicide rather than being arrested in ''Murder of Roger Ackroyd'' was out of respect for Caroline and fear that she would be disgraced by the revelation of the truth. So it seems highly likely that if the manuscript of that case were published, the names of all people and places would have to be changed first. According to this theory, "King's Abbot" was actually St. Mary Mead, and "Caroline Sheppard" was actually Miss Marple, with just enough details about her changed so that her neighbors wouldn't recognize her if they read the account of the crime.

It's only fair that Miss Marple should have a secret of her own.

* Supporting evidence: One of Agatha Christie's other detective characters, Harley Quinn, actually is by WordOfGod a supernatural figure who shows up where he's needed. If one, why not another?

This is joked about in the beginning of the story ''Nemesis,'' but what if it where the case? It would explain how she was always around when murders happen and how she has the powers to solve them.
