"Any book by Agatha Christie attracts attention but when she really hits her stride, as she dies in Murder at the Vicarage, she is hard to surpass." -Saturday Review of Literature

The first Miss Marple mystery, one which testsall her powers of observation and deduction.
“Anyone who murdered Colonel Protheroe,”declared the parson, brandishing a carving knifeabove a joint of roast beef, “would be doing theworld at large a favor!”
It was a careless remark for a man of the cloth. Andone which was to come back and haunt the clergymanjust a few hours later—when the Colonel isfound shot dead in the clergyman’s study. But asMiss Marple soon discovers, the whole village seemsto have had a motive to kill Colonel Protheroe.

About the Author
Agatha Christie is the most popular mystery writer of all time. With over two billion books published, her genius for detective fiction is unparalleled. She is truly the one and only Queen of Crime...
In the sleepy English village of St. Mary Mead, all is not as it seems. Under a seemingly peaceful exterior lurk guilt, deception--and murder. Colonel Protheroe, local magistrate and overbearing landowner, is found shot in the vicarage. With a plethora of suspects, including an artist who confesses to the murder, only Miss Marple can unravel the tangled web of clues. This BBC full-cast dramatization is magical. The gentle clinking of teacups, the pouring of tea, the chirping of birds in the garden, a chiming clock, and intense dialogue are enthralling.
