9780061003646: The Body in the Library

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
