A quiet English village
A shocking murder
An unlikely detective
Nobody liked Colonel Protheroe.
So when he’s found dead in the vicarage study, there’s no absence of suspects in the seemingly peaceful village of St Mary Mead.
In fact, Jane Marple can think of at least seven.
As gossip abounds in the parlours and kitchens of the parish, everyone becomes an amateur detective.
The police dismiss her as a prying busybody, but only the ingenious Miss Marple can uncover the truth . . .
The Body in the Library
A young woman found murdered
A scandal in the making
When Mrs Bantry wakes to find a body in her library, there’s only one woman to call: her good friend Jane Marple.
But she hasn’t called her old friend for comfort.
The body in her library has been murdered and Miss Marple is so very good at solving murders.
Her investigations uncover a scandal far darker than either of them could have imagined, and this time she may be out of her depth.
The Moving Finger
A malicious letter
A tragic death
A village filled with suspects
Nothing ever happens in the sleepy village of Lymstock.
Until letters accusing the villagers of unspeakable acts start to appear.
They try to dismiss them as a cruel hoax, but then one of the recipients is found dead. The letter next to her body reads simply, ‘I can’t go on’.
As fear spreads among the villagers, Jane Marple must uncover who is writing these letters – before anyone else is hurt.
A strange house
A ghost from the past
As soon as she moves into Hillside, Gwenda knows there’s something strange about this house.
A sealed room. A hidden door. The apparition of a young woman being strangled.
But strangest of all – this all seems quite familiar.
As her friend Jane Marple investigates, the answer seems to lie in a crime committed nearly twenty years ago.
The killer may have gotten away with murder. But Miss Marple is never far behind.
A Murder is Announced
An ordinary village
A shocking announcement
One morning the villagers of Chipping Cleghorn wake to find a strange notice in their papers:
‘A murder is announced and will take place on Friday, October 29th, at Little Paddocks at 6.30pm.’
Suspecting this is just a joke, they gather for some evening entertainment.
Then a gunshot is heard.
In desperation, the police turn to an old lady whose hobbies are gardening, gossiping – and solving murders.
After all, old ladies know better than anyone exactly what goes on in quiet English villages…
They Do It With Mirrors
A shocking crime
A mansion filled with suspects
Ruth Van Rydock can’t shake the feeling that something terrible is going to happen to her sister at Stonygates house.
Her old school friend Jane Marple decides it’s time to pay a visit.
But this grand Victorian mansion isn’t just a family home – it’s also a correctional facility for wayward young men.
And when something terrible does indeed happen, Miss Marple must face her most eccentric cast of suspects yet.
A Pocket Full of Rye
A wealthy family
A fatal cup of tea
Rex Fortescue was enjoying his morning cup of tea when he met his untimely end.
Suspicions naturally turn to his wife. He was filthy rich, after all.
Then she too is found dead.
Strange clues have Scotland Yard’s finest minds scratching their heads. Poisoned marmalade. Dead blackbirds. A victim found with a pocketful of rye.
It’s up to Jane Marple to put the pieces of this strange puzzle together…
4.50 from Paddington
Side by side for a brief moment
In that moment, a murder
Elspeth McGillicuddy is positive she witnessed a man strangling a woman to death.
But it was only the merest glimpse through a carriage window as the trains drew parallel.
She is the only witness, there are no suspects, and, most importantly, there is no corpse.
Who, apart from her friend Jane Marple, would take her seriously?
The Mirror Crack’d From Side to Side
A movie star
A deadly cocktail
When glamorous Marina Gregg came to live in St Mary Mead, tongues were sure to wag.
But, with a local gossip’s sudden death, has one tongue wagged a bit too much?
As the police chase false leads, and two more victims meet untimely ends, Miss Marple starts to ask her own questions.
What secrets might link a peaceful English village and a star of the silver screen?
A Caribbean Mystery
A Caribbean resort
Strangers thrown together
Is there evil in paradise?
Major Palgrave enjoys an audience, and, in Miss Marple, he discovers a captive audience too polite to walk away.
But midway through recounting the tale of a multiple murder, he stops suddenly when something, or someone, catches his eye.
Then, when he’s found dead the following day, Miss Marple suspects that someone wanted to silence the talkative major. Permanently.
