Publisher's Summary

Miss Marple is told that her old friend, Carrie, is in danger and she goes to stay with her at Stoneygates, a home for maladjusted adolescents.

While she is there, tragedy strikes as Carrie's step-son, Christian Gulbrandsen, is shot dead. There are at least seven suspects and two more murders follow. But the man with the obvious motive has a cast-iron alibi, as he could hardly be in two places at once - or could he?

June Whitfield once again stars as the indomitable amateur detective.

Intense! Hard to put down!

This book really had me on its toes. I found myself really pulled into the story. It was just the right length for me to feel I really got the whole story. Miss Marple is such a good character and such a stark difference to Hercule poirot that I can't help but listen to her character with deep interest.

Wonderful entertainment

Everyone of these bbc dramatizations of Christie's work are quite delightful I just wish I could guess the murderer and method more often.
