Product description

Review

‘Joan Hickson – you can’t beat her, you know. So enjoy this not-so-fluffy old lady doing her Marple thing. Genius.’ Time Out

‘Establishes firmly her claim to the throne of detection. The plot is as ingenious as ever… the dialogue both wise and witty; while the suspense is maintained very skilfully until the final revelation.’ A.A. Milne

‘As good as Agatha Christie ever wrote.’ Robert Barnard

‘In her own sphere there is no one to touch her, and her millions of readers are going to buy A Murder is Announced and like it.’
Margery Allingham

‘A super-smooth Christie – three neat murders in an English village, [and] an assortment of her famous red herrings, all beautifully marinaded.’ New York Times Book Review

--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From the Inside Flap

The villagers of Chipping Cleghorn are agog with curiosity when the Gazette advertises "A murder is announced and will take place on Friday, October 29th, at Little Paddocks at 6.30 p.m."

A childish practical joke? Or a spiteful hoax? Unable to resist the mysterious invitation, the locals arrive at Little Paddocks at the appointed time when, without warning, the lights go out and a gun is fired. When they come back on, a gruesome scene is revealed. An impossible crime? Only Miss Marple can unravel it.

--Jacqueline Winspear, New York Times bestselling author of the Maisie Dobbs novels --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Born in Torquay in 1890, Agatha Christie began writing during the First World War and wrote over 100 novels, plays and short story collections. She was still writing to great acclaim until her death, and her books have now sold over a billion copies in English and another billion in over 100 foreign languages. Yet Agatha Christie was always a very private person, and though Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple became household names, the Queen of Crime was a complete enigma to all but her closest friends.
