A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation starring June Whitfield as Miss Marple. Recuperating from a flying accident, Jerry Burton needs to take a break somewhere peaceful. He and his sister rent a house in the little village of Lymstock, where they know no-one and hope to be able to relax.

Their quiet life is shattered, however, by the arrival of an obscene anonymous letter accusing them of impropriety. Jerry refuses to take it seriously and throws it on the fire. But he soon discovers that theirs is by no means the first unpleasant missive: a number of other village residents have been similarly harassed. Suspicion is rife, and matters are brought to a head by the suicide of one of the letters' recipients.

With the whole village in a state of shock, the vicar's wife decides to invite down an old friend with considerable experience of the darker side of human nature. Can Miss Marple's arrival in Lymstock cast light on events? And can she discover the culprit before more deaths occur?

Listener Opinions

    " Agatha christie at her very best.....a must read!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel Kukwa | 12/25/2013

    " I didn't enjoy it quite as much as "4:50 from Paddington" -- the mystery wasn't quite as gripping. I'm also finding that Miss Marple is barely a guest star in her own series! All that aside, the writing style continues to be very engaging, and Ms. Christie remains an exceptional early 20th century English anthropologist. Perhaps we should investigate if Mr. Poirot is equally absent from HIS novels... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Valerie Sherman | 12/24/2013

    " This is less of a murder mystery than a coming of age / romance novel, with murder thrown in to advance the plot. I liked it less than the Hercule Poirot books I've read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather Craig | 12/20/2013

    " I still think about this book. "

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

    " Agatha Christie tells the amazing mystery of poison pen letters that leads to a suicide and then murder. Miss Marple works on the case in her typical fashion. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly Belvis | 12/3/2013

    " I enjoy reading mysteries when my life feels a little out of control. Mrs. Marple has a very calming effect! "

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

    " One my Agatha Christie favorites. Sentimental yet terrifying. I love the romance in it but I also like how this book was able to make my heart pumping damn fast with its creepy murderer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Crankyfacedknitter | 11/6/2013

    " I was surprised by how much of the book didn't actually have Miss Marple in it. I liked it well enough to read it all in one sitting; that's very telling, I think. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alice | 10/18/2013

    " librino piacevole di pettegolezzi e omicidi di paese. molto inglese, molto provinciale. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stuart | 10/15/2013

    " A great Christie recommendation from my daughter. The romantic subplot is a bit clumsy, but the murder mystery moves along nicely. And of course Miss Marple pulls it all together in the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kyrie | 9/13/2013

    " Small town pranks are turning evil and Miss Marple gets to unravel who's behind it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Samantha | 8/30/2013

    " This was an okay book. I was really hoping Miss Marple would have a bigger part in it, though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Smitha Ganarkote | 8/22/2013

    " No smoke without fire..smoke as a means of misdirection..yet another simple & enjoyable read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzanne Quinn | 7/20/2013

    " Nice story, but I thought the storyline was a little to easy to guess. I like the Miss Marple character and would have liked to have seen more of her. Overall, a fun tale. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dana | 5/7/2013

    " I read only 2 books by Agatha Christie until now but each time I loved the way she wrote, the characters, the story, everything <3 Highly recommended!:) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie | 2/25/2013

    " "Then, seeming to feel it was expected of her, she laid down her crochet, and delivered a gentle old-maidish dissertation on murder." Oh how I love Miss Marple, but she was barely in this one! Loved it anyway, natch. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina | 9/9/2012

    " I go through agatha Christie novels so quickly that sometimes I forget which ones I've read, which was the case with this one. Just as good the second time around. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lorraine | 5/1/2012

    " Poison pen letters upset members of Lymstock - Miss Marple investigates. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kirsten | 3/28/2012

    " Just barely a Miss Marple mystery, but great just the same. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 katie | 10/31/2011

    " A much-needed escape. A good, frothy Agatha Christie murder mystery, for me, is like a spoonful of sorbet between courses. Cleanses the palate between books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fawaz H | 10/28/2011

    " Just wow ^^ love it ^^ "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 9/23/2011

    " I enjoyed reading this novel. I must say I was very surprised finding out who the murderer was; I did not expect it at all! Onto the next Miss Marple! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janette | 9/15/2011

    " Loved it, so fun to go back and read these mysteries! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amybarker | 6/29/2011

    " this was the first "grown up book" I ever read. I think I even did a book report on it in 4th grade! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mimy | 6/27/2011

    " A poison pen mystery. Pretty compelling. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Samantha | 6/22/2011

    " This was an okay book. I was really hoping Miss Marple would have a bigger part in it, though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stuart | 6/21/2011

    " A great Christie recommendation from my daughter. The romantic subplot is a bit clumsy, but the murder mystery moves along nicely. And of course Miss Marple pulls it all together in the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barclay | 6/19/2011

    " Also listened as a book on tape. We didn't get nearly as wrapped up in this as Murder in Mesopotamia, partly because much of the 4th disk was scratched, so we missed a lot. Less violence and fear, so better for the girls. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sldarwish | 6/17/2011

    " I could never guess the ending, and the "side-plot" was also very rewarding ;) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kasey | 6/5/2011

    " This is the first Agatha Christie book I have read, and I love it! Great plot and a short story--well worth picking up. Great plot twists that keep you guessing all the way to the end. I highly suggest reading this. Grades 10+ "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rahaf | 5/18/2011

    " i thought it was megan she's a freak "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lobstergirl | 5/12/2011

    " Silly and misogynistic, relievedly short. My moving finger moved rapidly through the pages. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Raymond | 4/10/2011

    " I enjoyed the book even though I was totally fooled. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andrea | 3/21/2011

    " Mi ricordo la trama in maniera del tutto somaria ma le sensazioni che ho provato quando l'ho finito mi sono rimaste.
    Forse mi aspettavo di più da un'autrice di questo calibro, fatto sta che mi aveva deluso... "
