Contains four novels.

The Body in the Library - Dolly Bantry's sweet peas have just won a first at the village flower show. The vicar dressed in cassock and surplice is presenting the prizes...but why is his wife wearing a bathing costume? It's all a dream, of course - which ends sharply with the very real screaming of the Bantry's parlour-maid. The body of a dead girl has been discovered in the library - now Miss Marple must discover who put it there, and why...

The Moving Finger - Lymstock is a village full of secrets - most of which appear to be known to the author of the poison pen letters currently terrorising its inhabitants. When one of the recipients commits suicide, Miss Marple is the only person to question the coroner's verdict - she alone knows that the work of a poisoner is infinitely more deadly than that of a poison pen...

A Murder is Announced - An advertisement in the Chipping Cleghorn Gazette announces the time and place of a forthcoming murder - which is news in itself to the owner of the proposed crime scene. Yet, when the curious villagers descend upon Miss Blacklock's house at the appointed time, she greets them all graciously and explains she is as much in the dark as they are - then the lights go out and several shots are fired...

4.50 From Paddington - As two trains run side by side, Mrs McGillicuddy witnesses a murder - a man mercilessly tightening his grip around a woman's throat - and then the train draws away. Stunned, she reports what she's seen, but with no other witnesses and no corpse, no one is willing to believe her - except her friend Miss Marple...

I picked this up at the Nottingham Unconvention, and just ate my way through it! I love Agatha Christie, and these were all new to me. I forget how few pages have Miss Marple on them in these books, she's not in much of the action, but picks up what the police have found out and joins all the threads.

To be released at the York Bookcrossing monthly meetup.
