A BBC Radio full-cast dramatisation starring June Whitfield as Miss Marple, the deceptively mild spinster sleuth.

'A murder is announced and will take place on Friday, October 29, at Little Paddocks, at 6:30pm. Friends please accept this, the only intimation.'

Nestled among the usual notices about dogs for sale and appeals for domestic help, the startling entry in the personal column of the Chipping Cleghorn Gazette has the the entire village agog with curiosity. Is it a game? And who is meant to attend?

Sure enough, the evening sees a crowd of residents standing expectantly in the drawing-room at Little Paddocks. Then the clock strikes the half-hour, the lights go out, and three gunshots ring in the dark. When the lights go back on, the promised murder has been committed. Can Miss Marple work out what has happened and why?

    " A Miss Marple Mystery "

    " An enjoyable Agatha Christie, but not her best. I was able to guess the murderer in this one (view spoiler)[because of the pearl necklace (hide spoiler)], but the way Christie thoroughly embeds clues means the denouement is still incredibly enjoyable, as there are always things you miss. I'm partial to Poirot over Marple but a Christie mystery is always a fun, quick read. "

    " One of my favorites! I know I read it years ago, but I didn't remember much about it. Sleepy little village, the murders pile up, Miss Marple is on the scene. Delightful. "
