9780007120857: The Murder at the Vicarage (Miss Marple)

Agatha Christie’s first ever Miss Marple mystery, reissued with a striking new cover designed to appeal to the latest generation of Agatha Christie fans and book lovers.

’Anyone who murdered Colonel Protheroe,’ declared the parson, brandishing a carving knife above a joint of roast beef, ‘would be doing the world at large a service!’

It was a careless remark for a man of the cloth. And one which was to come back and haunt the clergyman just a few hours later. From seven potential murderers, Miss Marple must seek out the suspect who has both motive and opportunity.

Product Description:

Anyone who murdered Colonel Protheroe, declared the parson, brandishing a carving knife above a joint of roast beef, "would be doing the world at large a favour!" It was a careless remark for a man of the cloth. And one which was to come back and haunt the clergyman just a few hours later - when the Colonel is found shot dead in the clergyman's study. But as Miss Marple soon discovers, the whole village seems to have had a motive to kill Colonel Protheroe.

Review:

“The acknowledged queen of detective fiction.”
Observer

“When she really hits her stride, as she does here, she is hard to surpass.”
Saturday Review of Literature

“Her gift is pure genius.” Observer
