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.

    " Read counts: 2 "

    " awesome plot... the description of the murder on the train is brilliant! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex Kent | 1/27/2014

    " Love Agatha! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Roz Ito | 1/26/2014

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leah | 1/19/2014

    " I love this book. One of her best. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea Hauser | 1/17/2014

    " These are great because you're never really sure who the bad guy is - it's always a little bit of a surprise. So many murder mysteries are way too predictable, but her's really stand up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca Rice | 1/11/2014

    " Another Agatha Christie classic! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roger | 1/10/2014

    " First Agatha Christie book I have read. Good fun and kept me guessing. Ignoring the murders it gave a picture of England that was very comfortable and one that probably did not exist, but one we would have have been part of! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nags | 12/22/2013

    " This one will keep you guessing until the end although I felt like it didn't match the pace and drama of the rest of the book. Still, a great read by the queen of mysteries. This is my first Miss. Marple mystery (I think) and I was a bit surprised to see she actually does no sleuthing around. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tanya Spencer | 12/3/2013

    " So far, I like this very much. Interesting from the get go. I can't wait to see what happens. "

    " love this concept "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue | 10/29/2013

    " The books by Agatha Christie are often different to the tv screenplays, I enjoyed this "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carroll Martin | 4/27/2013

    " Only Agatha Christie novel I like. She's straightforward with no surprise characters at the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kay | 2/26/2013

    " A Miss Marple mystery and another story on tape I listen to in the car. Agatha Christie is always good for making drive time interesting. "

    " I never saw the murderer coming! I love Agatha Christie. She always gets me at the end with her plot twists. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kirk Dilley | 11/19/2012

    " A great "did I really just see that?!" mystery rooted in the psychology of the witness. "

    " It messed with me that she kept switching perspectives (i.e. which character's perspective we were reading from) but it was amusing in general. A nice quick read that I finished in two days only reading while commuting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 5/31/2011

    " Re-read this on Mom's iPad after she borrowed the ebook through Overdrive from the local public library. I'm really thinking I might get an iPad; I have Overdrive on my smartphone but it is nice having the bigger screen to read on. "
