Description


For an instant the two trains ran together, side by side. In that frozen moment, Elspeth witnessed a murder. Helplessly, she stared out of her carriage window as a man remorselessly tightened his grip around a womans throat. The body crumpled. Then the other train drew away.

But who, apart from Miss Marple, would take her story 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)
