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'.

Ever since my first introduction to The Queen of Crime, I've loved reading her books. I got this book as a way to read one of my favorite Miss Marple stories again. I loved the dramatized version as I felt I were there! I will always recommend Agatha Christie as an author and now I will recommend any BBC Radio dramatized production.
As with all of the BBC radio productions, this one was expertly cast and a thorough delight to listen to.
Why do I feel like this question was intended for a non-fiction book? If you haven't listened to one of these full-cast productions, this will probably make you want to check out more of them.
Hmmm....another question for a non-fiction book. It seems Mr. Audible thinks A Pocketful of Rye is a book about the history of growing rye in Britain.
