Review:

‘Joan Hickson – you can’t beat her, you know. So enjoy this not-so-fluffy old lady doing her Marple thing. Genius.’ Time Out

‘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

A MURDER IS ANNOUNCED

The villagers of Chipping Cleghorn, including Miss 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…

'Agatha Christie' was born in Torquay 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. She wrote 79 crime mysteries and collections, and saw her work translated into more languages than Shakespeare. Her enduring success, enhanced by many film and TV adaptations, is attribute to the timeless appeal of her characters and the unequalled ingenuity of her plots.

“The plot is as ingenious as ever…the dialogue both wise and witty; while suspense is maintained very skilfully until the final revelation”
