Description


For an instant the two trains ran together, side by side. In that frozen moment, Elspeth witnesseda murder. Helplessly, she stared out of hercarriage window as a man remorselessly tightened hisgrip around a woman's throat. The body crumpled.Then the other train drew away.

But who, apart from Miss Marple, would take herstory seriously? After all, there were no suspects, no other witnesses . . . and no corpse.

Praise For…


“Of all Christie’s detectives, it’s Jane Marple who best understood what can drive ordinary people to the extraordinary act of taking a life.”
-S. J. Rozan, Edgar Award-winning author

“The great mistress of the last-minute switch is at it again…. Even the experts have given up any attempts to out-guess Miss Christie.”
-New Yorker

“Precisely what one expects: the most delicious bamboozling possible in a babble of bright talk and a comprehensive bristle of suspicion all adeptly managed to keep you much too alert elsewhere to see the neat succession of clues that catch a murderer we never so much as thought of.”
-New York Herald Tribune

“A model detective story, there is never a dull moment.”
-The Times (London)

“The suspense is agonizing.”
-Daily Mail (London)
