Publisher's Summary

For an instant the two trains ran together, side by side. In that frozen moment, Elspeth witnessed a murder. Helplessly, she stared out of her carriage window as a man remorselessly tightened his grip around a woman's throat. The body crumpled. Then the other train drew away.
But who, apart from Miss Marple, would take her story seriously? After all, there were no suspects, no other witnesses...and no corpse.

Can't go wrong with Agatha Christie

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Great narration and a typical Agatha Christie plot, starring Miss Marple. These stories are just charming, and even though there is always a murder ( sometimes more than one) there is no actual violence and nothing offensive. It's a nice change from the current tendency toward graphic descriptions of violence and mayhem.

Would you ever listen to anything by Agatha Christie again?


What about Emilia Fox’s performance did you like?

She voiced the characters beautifully, both genders. Really excellent narration !

A delightful, different kind of Miss Marple!

This is a wonderful story, and quite different from the usual detective tales, in which the detective is in the forefront throughout the story.

In this book, Miss Marple is puzzled by how a man that a friend witnessed killing a woman on a train was able to dispose of the body in such a way that the police cannot verify that the murder even happened. She is determined to solve the mystery, but realizes she is not up to the physical tasks her investigation requires. She thus engages the help of an engaging, intelligent, and enterprising young woman to act as her agent. It's this character's actions that we follow through most of the story, along with a few other investigators Miss Marple brings in. Her agents' adventures are fascinating to follow, but Miss Marple's way of directing her actors is where the true magic of the story is found.

The result is very entertaining, and the narrator does a wonderful job of bringing the written word to life. This book became an instant favorite, and is one that I plan to listen to many times!
