9780007208548: MISS MARPLE - 4.50 FROM PADDINGTON

Classic Marple. 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 woman's 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.

About the Author:

Agatha Christie is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. Her books have sold over a billion copies in English with another billion in over 70 foreign languages. She is the most widely published author of all time and in any language, outsold only by the Bible and Shakespeare. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 20 plays, and six novels written under the name of Mary Westmacott.

From AudioFile:

One of Agatha Christie's better-known novels is subjected to the full BBC treatment, resulting in the usual excellence. The voices of the cast are carefully chosen, particularly that of June Whitfield, who plays Miss Jane Marple, soft-spoken sleuth-extraordinaire. Background sounds are skillfully interwoven with the dialogue. The plot is that two trains pull up next to one another for a few moments, and Miss McGillicuddy, a friend of Miss Marple who is on one train, sees an unknown man in the process of strangling a woman on the other train. At first, no one can find the body--until Miss Marple takes an indirect hand. No one fools Miss Marple for long. D.A.W. AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright AudioFile, Portland, Maine
