9780007208470: They Do It With Mirrors

When Miss Marple visits a girlhood friend she hasn't seen in 20 years, she finds that the friend and her husband have created a home for juvenile delinquents - and are living with 200 of them! Miss Marple senses danger, but not from the young people. Her fears are confirmed when a youth fires a revolver at the administrator and at that same moment in another part of the Victorian mansion a mysterious visitor, Mr. Gulbrandsen, is shot dead. Coincidence? Miss Marple thinks not. The suspense in this intricately plotted mystery builds as the clues point increasingly to a magician and his unusual mirrors.

From the Back Cover:

Miss Marple senses danger when she visits a friend living in Stoneygates, a rehabilitation center for delinquents. Her fears are confirmed when someone shoots at the administrator. Although he is not injured, a mysterious visitor is less fortunate—shot dead simultaneously in another part of the building.

Pure coincidence? Miss Marple thinks not, and must use all her cunning to solve the riddle of the stranger’s visit ... and his murder.

About the Author:

Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. Her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, written towards the end of the First World War, introduced us to Hercule Poirot, who was to become the most popular detective in crime fiction since Sherlock Holmes. She is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and another billion in over 100 foreign languages. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 19 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott.
