A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation starring June Whitfield as Miss Marple, the deceptively mild spinster sleuth.

Wealthy businessman Rex Fortescue is found dead with rye grain in his pocket. His death is followed in quick succession by a woman dying while eating bread and honey, and a maid in her garden.

Inspector Neele, in charge of investigating the spate of murders, consults with Miss Marple, who has an interesting and surprising theory to offer. She senses the murderer is dispatching his victims on the basis of the children's nursery rhyme 'Sing a Song of Sixpence'.

    " I'm sorry but whatever u say you can't beat Miss Marple. Havent read this one before so was nice, easy read not too complicated. As always there is more than u get on the TV. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fiona | 1/18/2014

    " I'm still reading this, but it's totally awesome. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 12/4/2013

    " This was one of the best Agatha Christie mysteries I have read so far. No wonder they call her the master of mystery. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruth | 12/4/2013

    " I love this book. I love Miss Marple. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Claire | 10/11/2013

    " I read this book that my Grandma had given me years ago, and felt closer to her as I enjoyed it. It's my first Agatha, and was a fun and surprising mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rika Jue | 9/29/2013

    " An unexpected ending to the mystery unless the reader had paid attention to the words of each suspect,even those characters who seem not being able to do a murder. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Miranda | 9/8/2013

    " Rolling through the Miss Marples... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen Heart | 4/24/2013

    " I enjoy this one. Very ingenious if you ask me. Kept my interest even though I already knew how it ends. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 3/30/2013

    " I enjoyed it, but for some reason I didn't love it enough to give it five stars. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy Boyd | 3/28/2013

    " Great story, not one of her best... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susie | 3/26/2013

    " This was my first Agatha Christie book -- it's fun and easy to read. It's been a while since I've read a murder-mystery and I enjoyed this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bethany | 1/15/2013

    " A fun read! I love that Agatha Christie can write create stories that are quick and easy to read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zainab Housami | 11/12/2012

    " it was full of excitement.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eva | 10/8/2012

    " Wonderful. I loved Inspector Neele. He was great. And the BBC version with Julie Mckenzie barely changed anything. Very refreshing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 8/8/2012

    " Though it was slow at first, I enjoyed this book in the Miss Marple series. Miss Marples seems at first to be there only as a side line, until the very end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christin | 7/10/2012

    " This is my favorite from Dame Agatha. A great twin plot twist. Interestingly themed murders. And best of all, the savvy yet quiet brilliance of Jane Marple, Christie's alter ego. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 7/5/2012

    " Good read. As always with an Agatha Christie book I didn't know who the murderer was until the end. I definitely intend to read more of her novels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharakael | 2/8/2012

    " A very well written murder mystery, as could be expected from Agatha Christie. The only thing that was rather disappointing was the fact that Miss Marple only showed up in the later part of the book... and she was written more like a supporting character instead of a main character. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Portia Costa | 12/30/2011

    " This is a great mystery, even if there's relatively little of Miss Marple in it. The main detective is Inspector Neele, but he's a terrific character, very nuanced and clever. It was no hardship to enjoy him as the primary sleuth, aided by key clues unearthed by the redoubtable Miss Marple. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karla | 12/9/2011

    " If you want a good, quick mystery read, you will enjoy this. A childhood rhyme is used to create the framework for murder. I did not anticipate the killer. I was somewhat surprised that it was a Miss Marple book because she has a fairly minimal role. But I liked it "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Addie | 6/28/2011

    " <3 <3 <3 I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!!!
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 5/14/2011

    " This was an entertaining mystery, and I liked how it all came together in the end. I'd probably give it 3.5 stars rather than 4 stars if that were an option, but I did enjoy listening to it.
    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Telisha | 3/5/2011

    " I had a good 3 people in mind but had forgotten to look at a key element and was therefore presently surprised by the twist at the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fahad | 2/19/2011

    " It has been a while since I read and Agatha Christie book, and this one was a nice comeback. Miss Marple never fails <3 "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jana | 2/3/2011

    " Once again, the queen of mystery stumped me. I have read countless agatha christie novels and i have only ever figured one out. this one kept me guessing, and i loved all of the characters in it. it is a miss marple mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Haley | 1/17/2011

    " I didn't like Miss Marple mysteries when I read them growing up, but I enjoy them now. She doesn't feature quite so prominently in this one, but she does solve the thing. A quick read, just as good as Christie's others. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elaine | 1/14/2011

    " I really like this one. I did not see the solution coming until you were hit over the head with it. It was really a very good mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 11/22/2010

    " One of my top five of Agatha Christie's thus far. I'm almost through all the Miss Marples; she's def my favorite over Poirot. Thank goodness for audio books. "
