Publisher's Summary

The villagers of Chipping Cleghorn 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? 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.


What the Critics Say

"Joan Hickson: you can't beat her, you know. So enjoy this not-so-fluffy old lady doing her Marple thing. Genius." (Time Out)

Perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon

I just love Agatha Christie's Miss Marple stories. And Joan Hickson is my favourite Miss Marple. Her voice has that very proper English lady sound while also sounding very inquisitive and intelligent.

This is the perfect audio book to sit back in the evening and just envelope yourself in the fascinating world that Agatha Christie creates.

As a book, this is my favourite Miss Marple story. It has such interesting characters and such devious twists and turns in the plot.

If you like little old lady murder mysteries you'll love this audiobook.
