Agatha Christie’s most ingenious murder mystery, reissued with a striking new cover designed to appeal to the latest generation of Agatha Christie fans and book lovers.

The villagers of Chipping Cleghorn, including Jane Marple, are agog with curiosity over an advertisement in the local gazette which reads: ‘A murder is announced and will take place on Friday October 29th, at Little Paddocks at 6.30 p.m.’

A childish practical joke? Or a hoax intended to scare poor Letitia Blacklock? Unable to resist the mysterious invitation, a crowd begins to gather at Little Paddocks at the appointed time when, without warning, the lights go out…

Product Description:

Murder is Announced

Review:

‘Establishes firmly her claim to the throne of detection. The plot is as ingenious as ever… the dialogue both wise and witty; while the suspense is maintained very skilfully until the final revelation.’ A.A. Milne

‘As good as Agatha Christie ever wrote.’ Robert Barnard

‘In her own sphere there is no one to touch her, and her millions of readers are going to buy A Murder is Announced and like it.’
Margery Allingham

‘A super-smooth Christie – three neat murders in an English village, [and] an assortment of her famous red herrings, all beautifully marinaded.’ New York Times Book Review
