When the Bantrys wake to find the body of a beautiful, young stranger in their library. Dolly Bantry knows there’s only one person to call: her old friend Miss Marple.

Miss Marple must solve the mystery, before tongues start to wag, and the murderer strikes again.

Review

2

After reading 4:50 from Paddington, I was expecting much more from this one, but unfortunately it’s not as good as other Christie’s books. It was a quick read and I guess that was the only good thing about it. As I’m planning to read all the books in Miss Marple series, I really hope that the rest of the books are better than this one.

Personally I won’t recommend it to anyone. This book is definitely not for me!
