9780007179442: The Murder at the Vicarage: Complete & Unabridged

The first Miss Marple novel.

The first of a new-look series of audio books for the 21st century.
Beautifully re-packaged with stunning new cover illustrations and design that rival some of the best jackets and audio collections out there! Story telling at it’s best, that makes them a delight to listen to.

’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.

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

“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

Book Description:

It’s a historic event in detective fiction as the unflappable sleuth’s passion for gossip – and cheerful recognition of the worst side of human nature – leads her to a crime scene at the local vicarage. Colonel Protheroe, St. Mary Mead’s most loathed magistrate, has been found shot through the head. But it isn’t the “pompous old brute’s” murder that raises eyebrows, but rather the scandalous secrets it exposes. Those secrets are about to put St. Mary Mead on the map – and send Miss Marple on the trail of a killer with something to hide.
