When Miss Marple visits a girlhood friend she hasn't seen in 20 years, she finds that the friend and her husband have created a home for juvenile delinquents - and are living with 200 of them! Miss Marple senses danger, but not from the young people. Her fears are confirmed when a youth fires a revolver at the administrator and at that same moment in another part of the Victorian mansion a mysterious visitor, Mr. Gulbrandsen, is shot dead. Coincidence? Miss Marple thinks not. The suspense in this intricately plotted mystery builds as the clues point increasingly to a magician and his unusual mirrors.

Agatha Christie was born in 1890. During the World War I she worked as a hospital dispenser, where she gleaned the working knowledge of various poisons. Her first novel was The Mysterious Affair at Styles, published in 1920, followed over the next six years by four more detective novels and a short story collection. However, it was not until the publication of The Murder of Roger Ackroyd that Agatha Christie’s reputation was firmly established. In 1930 the sharp-witted spinster sleuth Miss Marple made her first appearance in Murder at the Vicarage. In all, Agatha Christie published 80 crime novels and short story collections. As her play The Mousetrap (the longest-running play in the history of the theater) testifies, Agatha Christie’s detective stories are likely to appeal for a long time to come. Agatha Christie was awarded a CBE in 1956 and was made a Dame of the British Empire in 1971. She died in 1976.
