Staff Reviews

One of Christie's quirkiest and most entertaining novels. Mrs. McGillicuddy witnesses a murder from the window of her train, but without a body, no one believes her...except of course her friend Miss Marple. 

— Janice Hamrick


The Queen of Mystery has come to Harper Collins Agatha Christie, the acknowledged mistress of suspense creator of indomitable sleuth Miss Marple, meticulous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, and so many other unforgettable characters brings her entire oeuvre of ingenious whodunits, locked room mysteries, and perplexing puzzles to Harper Paperbacks. In 4:50 From Paddington, a woman in one train witnesses a murder occurring in another passing one and only Miss Marple believes her story.

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)
