Publisher's Summary

A classic Marple mystery, read by Emilia Fox.
The villagers of Chipping Cleghorn, including Miss Marple, are agog with curiosity over an advertisement in the local gazette which reads: ‘A murder is announced and will take place on Friday October 29th, at Little Paddocks at 6.30 p.m.' A childish practical joke? Or a hoax intended to scare poor Letitia Blacklock? Unable to resist the mysterious invitation, a crowd begins to gather at Little Paddocks at the appointed time when, without warning, the lights go out…

Entertaining narration

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

Comedic in a warm way, an engaging puzzle.

What did you like best about this story?

Narration is excellent, loved all the voice characterisations, even if a touch Allo Allo at times.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I have savoured the narration (listened to it daily from the exercise bike!).

Any additional comments?

I would recommend this as great entertainment, a good story, very well narrated.

Emilia Fox does a fine job

Any additional comments?

I was sceptical as to what to expect having got used to Joan Hickson narrating the Miss Marple stories - but must say I was pleasantly surprised !

I would be happy to listen to some of her other Marple narrations.
