An ordinary village

A shocking announcement
One morning the villagers of Chipping Cleghorn wake to find a strange notice in their papers:

‘A murder is announced and will take place on Friday, October 29th, at Little Paddocks at 6.30pm.’

Suspecting this is just a joke, they gather for some evening entertainment.

Then a gunshot is heard.

In desperation, the police turn to an old lady whose hobbies are gardening, gossiping – and solving murders.

After all, old ladies know better than anyone exactly what goes on in quiet English villages…

Never underestimate Miss Marple

‘The queen of jaw-dropping, heart-stopping twists.’
Karen M. McManus

‘Establishes firmly her claim to the throne of detection. The plot is as ingenious as ever … the dialogue both wise and witty; while the suspense is maintained very skilfully until the final revelation.’
A.A. Milne
