A Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation starring June Whitfield as the deceptively mild Miss Marple with Ian Lavender, Joan Sims and Susannah Harker.

Elspeth McGillicuddy is down from Scotland for a holiday and boards the 4:50 train from Paddington station to visit her friend, Miss Marple.

During the journey, another train pulls alongside, and through the window Mrs McGillicuddy witnesses a tall, dark man strangling a blonde woman. She reports what she has seen, yet no one takes any notice. There is no report of any murder, no dead woman found on any train, and the police have no record of any persons reported missing that matches the description.

Only Miss Marple believes her account, and realising that the body must have been thrown off the train, with the help of maps and train timetables she pinpoints the exact spot where the body must be. With the help of her young friend Lucy Eyelesbarrow, she goes about the tricky task of uncovering a murder - and a cunning murderer.

    " One of my favorite Jane Marple books so far. Starts with a suspenseful Hitchcock-like scene of a murder being witnessed from a train, then moves to a run-down country manor in the middle of a golf course/suburb, with eccentric and often charming characters. The genre of this book feels fluid in a way that works from me, switching back and forth between whodunit and a comical romance centered around a fascinating character who poses as Miss Marple's niece. Miss Marple is her right old gossipy, matchmaking self here. "
