After the death of her husband, Dolly Bantry sold Gossington Hall to the former film star Marina Gregg and her husband. When the glamorous couple decide to throw a benefit party for the local hospital, the grounds are thronged with curious visitors, and for one of them, the day ends in tragedy.

As Marina is serving cocktails in the house, she is cornered by the excitable Heather Babcock, who chatters away about their former meeting about eleven years ago before spilling her daiquiri all over herself and Marina. Ever the gracious hostess, Marina offers her own untouched drink to Mrs Babcock - only to look on, horrified, as the lady dies in front of her.

It is up to Miss Marple to find out who was really meant to take the poison that killed poor Heather Babcock. Could it be that Marina Gregg was the intended victim? If so, Miss Marple's task will not be an easy one, for the lady had an unusually large number of enemies...

Agatha Christie's perplexing mystery is dramatised with a full cast, including Ian Lavender, Gayle Hunnicutt, and James Laurenson, with June Whitfield as the sharp-witted spinster sleuth.

    " i love a good agatha christie and this was no exeption! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bret Jones | 2/11/2014

    " Agatha Christie had me lost and confused at the start, but by the end, I was once again in awe of her fabulous writing skills! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charon | 2/2/2014

    " I pretty much read that in one go, got very little sleep and almost solved the case this time. Almost. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Victoria H. | 1/27/2014

    " I was correct with who had committed the original crime but I was wrong for the reasoning! And Christie dropped the hint many times in the book as well! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 1/13/2014

    " A Miss Marple mystery. And I didn't figure it all out until right before the reveal. Another good Agatha Christie. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 1/13/2014

    " Not my favorite Miss Marple at all. The story was too short and the characters felt underdeveloped. On to the next one though :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 1/6/2014

    " This is one of my favorite Marples. I think it's because the motive for the murder was very unique and original. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 12/12/2013

    " This is my first foray into the novels surrounding Miss Marple and I dare say it won't be the last. If Marple is this good as an old lady mostly confined to her home, then I really want to read all about her adventures when she was young. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 12/11/2013

    " A great Christie - clever plot, ingenuous resolution. I liked Miss Marple's frustration with her growing infirmities and annoying caretaker. It gives us a peek into her life that we don't usually get from Christie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 SÑ”lin | 12/10/2013

    " very good cliffhanger ending and psycological thriller "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marisa | 12/8/2013

    " I watched the film and read the book. It is really mysterious one and actually in some kind sad. I really recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 12/7/2013

    " My first Christie; will always have that special place in my heart and bookshelf. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judine | 6/8/2013

    " This book was interesting because Miss Marple tends to let other people do the research for her and then makes her conclusions. However, I'm as troubled by her morality as I am with Poirot's; Miss Marple is also too complicit in murder/suicide for my taste. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tammy Kaehler | 3/22/2013

    " Hard to tell whether my memory is more of the book or of the TV movie with Elizabeth Taylor. Gripping story either way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 5/16/2012

    " I'm going back and rereading my old favourites. I own every Agatha Christie title (hard work done in used bookstores by my parents and I) and I think it will be fun to just pick one up every so often and read it. Most of the time I forget "who dun it". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nikki | 3/28/2012

    " I don't think I'll ever like Miss Marple as much as I like Poirot, but I have to say she's growing on me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 10/30/2011

    " This was a good book , but mysteries just are not my thing! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John Carter | 8/30/2011

    " If Christie had a weakness it was that her characters sometimes lack depth. Her strengths were new methods and new motives for murder. This is one of my favorites among her novels, avoiding the weakness and playing to the strengths. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amshu Gajurel | 8/24/2011

    " Good.But not brilliant.:) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellen | 6/13/2011

    " So much historical placement in this one. Excellent like all of Agatha Christie's works. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 5/1/2011

    " Marple #4 for me wasn't bad. Movie star moves into Marple's neighbourhood - murder and intrigue ensue. Marple figures it all out. Mostly without leaving her chair. Ms. Christie drops a few hints, enough to keep you thinking you might have the answer to it all. Fun to read on a rainy day. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zuzy | 4/20/2011

    " this was 1 of agatha's most amazing novels!!
    I felt an excitment that i have'nt felt in a verey long time ..WoOoOoOoW "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mimi | 3/22/2011

    " An all-time favorite of mine, this story was so very sad. Without revealing any details, I felt like what was done in the end needed to be done. I will read this again and again for years to come. Tear jerker! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tiffany | 3/18/2011

    " I listened to this on audiobook and whilst at first it began a bit slowly, and I had to replay certain parts. The storyline is wonderful and I really enjoy reading Agatha Christie books. However, I had a problem with the abrupt ending! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tanya | 3/12/2011

    " *In this edition, it has 208 pages instead of 224.

    Great book overall. However, the thing with the "frozen" look seemed to a little unbelievable. Nobody, would pay such a great attention to it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fi | 3/5/2011

    " I was reading this book when I went into labour with my daughter; several hours & one baby later, I couldn't wait to find out what happened next, & finished the book the next day! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie | 2/24/2011

    " Another Agatha Christie mystery that I hadn't read for many years. I again truly enjoyed the book. I did see the movie that was made from this book, starring Elizabeth Taylor and enjoyed it equally much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dereka | 1/12/2011

    " We read Agatha Christie novels for our last book club meeting-- each of us a different one. I read Death on the Nile and didn't get the same thrill that I got when I was fourteen and read all of her mysteries so I read another one just to make sure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lamplight | 12/28/2010

    " The best! I had chills for a good 3 hours after I finished it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandra | 11/12/2010

    " I reread this one while I was in labor, and it kept my attention, so you know it must be pretty good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liarbyrd | 11/9/2010

    " This is the first Agatha Christi mystery I read, way back when I was a Freshman in high school. It's a clever little mystery with a poignant motivation and I will always have a soft place in my heart for Miss Marples. "
