'Major Palgrave was telling Miss Marple about a chap who had "almost certainly committed a couple of murders and got away with it". It turned out that he "happened to have a snapshot" of the blighter in question. Unfortunately, just as his account reached the climactic point of sorting through his portable picture file, he was interrupted by the arrival of a group of fellow guests at the Caribbean Hotel where Miss Marple had gone for quiet convalescence. Miss Marple had reason to remember Major Palgrave's hurried and embarrassed changing of the subject, and his startled reaction to the presence of someone among the new arrivals. The next moring Palgrave was dead - unexpectedly but not, apparently, unnaturally. But Miss Marple's suspicions, once aroused, havenever been easily allayed; and when she discovered that the photograph, so precisely described by Major Palgrave the day before, was not to be found among his efects she knew that her convalescence would not follow its planned quiet course. She wondered: who, among her fellow residents on the small island, had been featured in that odd, odd snapshot.' TAKEN AT THE FLOOD. "While he was alive Gordon Cloade had been a paragon of a relation to all his kin. He was not only rich but helpfully rich. To each of his many relatives it made a difference; and there was a pleasant certainty, too, about the future prospects of each of them. Cloade, the bachelor, had never made a secret of the fact that they would all be generously provided ofr. Then came the blow. Cloade's sudden, and completely unexpected, marriage would not have been disastrous in itself. The disaster was in the timing of his death - before he made a new will; with the old one invalidated by his marriage, there was now only one legal heir. Strange events follow - including the murder of the oddly named Enoch Arden, a stranger upon whose real identity hangs the whole financial future of the Cloade family.' THE SEVEN DIALS MYSTERY. 'Eight alarm clocks, selected for their stridency of tone, had been set, secretly, in the sleeper's room. Combined, their noise could be guessed to be such as would be enough to waken the dead - let alone a notoriously heavy sleeper. In the event it proved otherwise; their discordant early morning chorus in the bedroom at Chimneys left the victim unmoved and unmoving because, quite unmistakabl, he was really dead. The coroner's verdict was death by misadventure - caused by an overdose of a sleeping draught. Yet why had the dead man himself been puzzled by his sleepiness? That he had been was shown, after the inquest, by the discovery of a letter that he had begun to write on the night of his death. And why had he refered, in the letter, to that "Seven Dials business" as being more or less of a joke? Was it a coincidence that, of the eight clocks that had been strategically distributed about the room, seven were found to have been neatly regrouped in line on the mantelshelf.? Certainly it could hardly have been coincidence that a friend of the victim, found dying from a gunshot wound, alson made a cryptic reference to teh Seven Dials with his dying breath.' 8vo - over 7Â¾" - 9Â¾" tall.
