Description

Agatha Christie’s world-famous Miss Marple mystery, reissued with a striking new cover designed to appeal to the latest generation of Agatha Christie fans and book lovers.

It’s seven in the morning. The Bantrys wake to find the body of a young woman in their library. She is wearing evening dress and heavy make-up, which is now smeared across her cheeks.

But who is she? How did she get there? And what is the connection with another dead girl, whose charred remains are later discovered in an abandoned quarry?

The respectable Bantrys invite Miss Marple to solve the mystery… before tongues start to wag.

Publisher Review

"The best opening I ever wrote." Agatha Christie "Genuine old-crusted Christie." Time "Professional detectives are no match for elderly spinsters... it is hard not to be impressed." Times Literary Supplement "one of the most ingeniously contrived of all her murder stories." Birmingham Post
