Publisher's Summary

A classic Marple mystery, read by Emilia Fox.
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.

Couldn't Finish

I found the plot of this particular novel very slow and underwhelming. I still love the character though. A swift move on till the next Miss Marple.
Looking at the publication dates, it was 7 years or so between Miss Marple stories. I wonder if AC felt the same way about her own character in this novel as I do...
