Description

"Anyone who murdered Colonel Protheroe," declared the parson, brandishing a carving knife above a joint of roast beef, "would be doing the world at large a service!"

It was a careless remark for a man of the cloth. And one which was to come back and haunt the clergyman just a few hours later. From seven potential murderers, Miss Marple must seek out the suspect who has both motive and opportunity.

©1930 Agatha Christie (P)2001 HarperCollins Publishers Ltd, London UK

Critiques

"The acknowledged queen of detective fiction." ( Observer)
"When she really hits her stride, as she does here, she is hard to surpass." ( Saturday Review of Literature)
"Joan Hickson: You can't beat her, you know. So enjoy this not-so-fluffy old lady doing her Marple thing. Genius." ( Time Out)

Joan Hickson is perfect

Not perhaps Christie's best, being the earliest of the Miss Marple mysteries, but the puzzle is neatly constructed, and Joan HIckson is the perfect narrator - not simply because she IS Miss Marple, but because she can handle the range of voices, characters and scenes with extraordinary effectiveness

Like truly living the story.

Loved the audio book. Joan Hickson is the best story teller ever and she pulls us into the mystery and entangling us in the action.

Joan Hickson - the Eternal Christie Queen

Everything Joan Hickson touches turns to gold ♡
the command she has over her voice is incomparable and her performance with this Marple classic is as always - excellent. She brings the story alive.

Murder at the Vicarage

Brilliant! Joan Hickson is a gem, speaks like a real upper class English lady and creates a wonderful atmosphere for this clever tale. Thoroughly recommended.
