Publisher's Summary

Another edge-of-the-seat mystery from Miss Marple.
One minute, silly Heather Badcock had been gabbling on at her movie idol, the glamorous Marina Gregg. The next, Heather suffered a massive seizure. But for whom was the deadly poison really intended?
Marina's frozen expression suggested she had witnessed something horrific. But, while others searched for material evidence, Jane Marple conducted a very different investigation - into human nature.

An excellent mystery

A very good Agatha Christie story, not simply for the murder mystery itself but for the social context and the examination of changing times. Miss Marple is wonderful, particularly in her dealings with her annoying lady companion Miss Knight. Emilia Fox also does a very good job of narrating the story.

What a pleasure to listen to Emilia Fox

Emilia Fox is a wonderful narrator and a great performer! What a joy to listen to her!
She adds depth, emotion and funny moments. She has an incredible range of voices.
