Miss Marple senses danger when she visits a friend living in Stoneygates, a rehabilitation center for delinquents. Her fears are confirmed when someone shoots at the administrator. Although he is not injured, a mysterious visitor is less fortunate - shot dead simultaneously in another part of the building.
Pure coincidence? Miss Marple thinks not, and must use all her cunning to solve the riddle of the stranger's visit...and his murder.

While the story was yet another great Agatha Christie read the narration had moments that were rough on the ears. From past experience with this narrator I went in knowing she would nail Miss Marple and has an almost soothing tone in her standard voice, but her attempt at male voices could be poor. It seems the combo of a male southern voice was impossible for her. It was so bad I couldn't help but cringe. Thankfully the character wasn't very verbose. Her American accents as a whole are not good quality. It was to the benefit of this audiobook that the story was Marple heavy and subsequently made the poor aspects of the narration easier to tolerate.
Love the story, but have to despair of the dreadful American accent given to Wally by the narrator. She did fine on the American women and the other accents , but awful on him.
