Description


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 womans 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 the best-selling author of all time. She wrote eighty crime novels and story collections, fourteen plays, and several other books. Her books have sold roughly four billion copies and have been translated into 45 languages. She is the creator of the two most enduring figures in crime literature--Hercule Poirot and Miss Jane Marple--and author of "The Mousetrap", the longest-running play in the history of modern theatre. Christie was born in Torquay, Devon in 1890. She died in 1976 in Wallingford, Oxfordshire.

Praise For…


“Of all Christie’s detectives, it’s Jane Marple who best understood what can drive ordinary people to the extraordinary act of taking a life.”
-S. J. Rozan, Edgar Award-winning author

“The great mistress of the last-minute switch is at it again…. Even the experts have given up any attempts to out-guess Miss Christie.”
-New Yorker

“Precisely what one expects: the most delicious bamboozling possible in a babble of bright talk and a comprehensive bristle of suspicion all adeptly managed to keep you much too alert elsewhere to see the neat succession of clues that catch a murderer we never so much as thought of.”
-New York Herald Tribune

“A model detective story, there is never a dull moment.”
-The Times (London)

“The suspense is agonizing.”
-Daily Mail (London)
