A new tie-in edition of Agatha Christie’s bestseller, to coincide with the broadcast of the new movie on ITV starring Geraldine McEwan. Includes a full colour plate section, a ‘making of’ essay, background facts and a bonus chapter.
It’s seven in the morning. The Bantrys wake to find the body of a young woman in their library. She is wearing evening dress and heavy make-up, which is now smeared across her cheeks.
But who is she? How did she get there? And what is the connection with another dead girl, whose charred remains are later discovered in an abandoned quarry?
The respectable Bantrys invite Miss Marple to solve the mystery… before tongues start to wag.

“The best opening I ever wrote.”
“Genuine old-crusted Christie.”
“Professional detectives are no match for elderly spinsters… it is hard not to be impressed.”
Times Literary Supplement
“one of the most ingeniously contrived of all her murder stories.” Birmingham PostBook Description:
Dolly Bantry's reaction on seeing the body of a beautiful, but very dead, blonde in her library is to immediately call for her friend Jane Marple. The police identify the girl as Ruby Keene, a dance hostess. She was reported missing by elderly invalid Conway Jefferson who, fond of Ruby, planned to adopt her - much against his family's wishes. When the body of another dead girl turns up, Miss Marple, with her incredible eye for spotting the clues that others overlook, determines to find this ruthless killer. 'Hearing these books for the first time, it may come as some surprise how very funny Miss Christie can be' Spectator
