9780006499619: Miss Marple Omnibus, volume 3:

A further four of Agatha Christie’s twelve, celebrated Miss Marple novels in a single volume, bound in the stylish livery of the new series.

Miss Marple receives a letter from a friend who died only a week earlier – a letter urging her to investigate a crime. But he has failed to tell her the nature of the nature of the crime. The only clue he leaves is an almost unfathomable quotation…

Sleeping Murder
Since Gwenda moved into her home, odd things have started to happen. In fear, she turns to Miss Marple to exorcise her ghosts – and unravel a ‘perfect’ crime that has escaped detection for 18 years…

At Bertram’s Hotel
A holiday in London draws Miss Marple to Bertram’s Hotel, where she can indulge herself in all the comforts of a bygone era. But she senses that something sinister lurks beneath the well-polished veneer…

The Murder at The Vicarage
The Colonel’s body is discovered in the Vicarage study. Yet only a few hours before, the vicar himself declared, ‘Anyone who murdered Colonel Protheroe would be doing the world at large a service.’ Miss Marple finds it all most intriguing…

‘Full of freshness and charm … Miss Marple is spry, shrewd and compassionate’
Sunday Telegraph

From the Back Cover:

'four of agatha christie's twelve miss marple novels in a single volume'

'a caribbean mystery'
It seems nothing will stem Major Palgrave's tiresome stories – except his untimely death. Could it be coincidence that just before he died he was about to show Miss Marple a photograph of a murderer? Or that he was about to hand the snapshot over something, or someone, caught his eye and made him turn pale and change the subject? Miss Marple thinks not…

'a pocket full of rye'
Rex Fortesque, 'king' of financial empire, was in his counting house; his 'queen' was in her parlour – when both ingested lethal qualities of deadly poison. The clues to these ruthless murders demonstrate terrifying similarities between the rhyme and the crime, and it will take all of Miss Marple's ingenuity to find them…

'the mirror crack'd from side to side'
Marina Gregg, the famous actress, witnesses a murder in her new country home – but only Dolly Bantry witnesses the look of absolute horror on Marina's face. Dolly describes it to Jane Marple, as the look of 'The Lady of Shallot' as she cries ''The doom has come upon me'' – but Miss Marple wonders exactly whose doom Marina has foreseen…

'they do it with mirrors'
To fulfil a promise to an old schoolfriend, Miss Marple stays in an old country house – with 200 juvenile delinquents and seven heirs to an old lady's fortune. One of them is a murderer – with a talent, it seems, for being in two places at once…

'Throws off the false clues and misleading events as only a master of the art can do'
'New York Times'
