Synopsis: Agatha Christie’s beloved sleuth Miss Marple is back in this compelling audio version of one of Christie’s most adored and adapted novels. Jerry Burton and his sister Joanna are living in an English village as Jerry recovers from a disabling airplane accident. But when vicious letters begin arriving all over town — including a few addressed to Burton — one recipient takes her own life and another is murdered. Burton takes on the case, but only Miss Marple can unlock the secrets of this troubling tale. Her simple but ever-effective approach is immortalized once again in this reading, performed by veteran actor Martin Jarvis.
From the Back Cover:
Lymstock is a town with more than its share of shameful secrets—a town where even a sudden outbreak of anonymous hate mail causes only a minor stir.
But all that changes when one of the recipients, Mrs. Symmington, commits suicide. Her final note says “I can’t go on,” but Miss Marple questions the coroner’s verdict of suicide. Soon nobody is sure of anyone—as secrets stop being shameful and start becoming deadly.
Title: THE MOVING FINGER.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers, United Kingdom, 2005. Hardback. Condition: New. Facsimile edition. Language: English. Brand new Book. A facsimile first edition hardback of the Miss Marple books, published to mark the 75th anniversary of her first appearance and to celebrate her new-found success on television. When The Murder at the Vicarage was published in October 1930, little did the literary world realise that Agatha Christie, already famous for her early Poirot titles, was introducing a character who would become the best-loved female sleuth of all time. The 14 Marple books would appear at intervals over the next 49 years, with Miss Marple's Final Cases published in 1979, three years after Agatha's death. To mark the 75th anniversary of Miss Marple's first appearance, and to celebrate her renewed fortunes as a primetime television star, this collection of facsimile first editions will be the perfect way to enjoy these books in their original form - 12 novels and two short story collections. Reproducing the original typesetting and formats from the first editions from the Christie family's own archive copies, these books sport the original covers which have been painstakingly restored from the best available copies, reflecting five decades of iconic cover design.
