    Description

    For an instant the two trains ran together, side by side. In that frozen moment, Elspeth witnessed a murder. Helplessly, she stared out of her carriage window as a man remorselessly tightened his grip around a woman's throat. The body crumpled. Then the other train drew away.

    But who, apart from Miss Marple, would take her story seriously? After all, there were no suspects, no other witnesses...and no corpse.

    A delightful, different kind of Miss Marple!

    This is a wonderful story, and quite different from the usual detective tales, in which the detective is in the forefront throughout the story.

    In this book, Miss Marple is puzzled by how a man that a friend witnessed killing a woman on a train was able to dispose of the body in such a way that the police cannot verify that the murder even happened. She is determined to solve the mystery, but realizes she is not up to the physical tasks her investigation requires. She thus engages the help of an engaging, intelligent, and enterprising young woman to act as her agent. It's this character's actions that we follow through most of the story, along with a few other investigators Miss Marple brings in. Her agents' adventures are fascinating to follow, but Miss Marple's way of directing her actors is where the true magic of the story is found.

    The result is very entertaining, and the narrator does a wonderful job of bringing the written word to life. This book became an instant favorite, and is one that I plan to listen to many times!

    Fun story! Great narration!

    Emilia Fox brings such reality to this classic Agatha Christie mystery. Clever Miss Marple uses all of her ingenuity to recreate a murder commuted on one train and observed on another. From that point begins a series of events and cast of characters entangled in such ways as to make the recognition of the murderer seemingly impossible. It is only the cleverness of Miss Marple that the culprit is identified.

    Can't go wrong with Agatha Christie

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Great narration and a typical Agatha Christie plot, starring Miss Marple. These stories are just charming, and even though there is always a murder ( sometimes more than one) there is no actual violence and nothing offensive. It's a nice change from the current tendency toward graphic descriptions of violence and mayhem.

    Would you ever listen to anything by Agatha Christie again?

    Absolutely.

    What about Emilia Fox’s performance did you like?

    She voiced the characters beautifully, both genders. Really excellent narration !

    Nobody does it better!

    In a recent film version of, "A Caribbean Mystery," Miss Marple is seated next to Ian Fleming as they wait for a complimentary lecture to begin. Jane asks her friend Ian, "How is the new book coming along?"
    Mr. Fleming replies, "Very well. Except I can't think of a suitable name for my detective!" Miss Marple answers with a polite platitude.
    Then the speaker, an Archiologist, begins, "Good evening. My name is Bond, James Bond."

    In this unabridged rendition of, "450 From Paddington," the narrator could have been witless and still pulled off a 5 star 🌟 performance with this masterpiece by Dame Christie. But the narrator is a seasoned and articulate professional who jumps immediately into Mrs. Magillicutty and the listener is swept away as if on the Orient Express.
    And no pair could have done it better!

    Wonderful!

    One of my favorite Agatha Christie puzzles! Suspenseful till the very end. You'll never guess who the murderer is!
