About the Book

The fourth Miss Marple mystery, now available as a Harper trade paperback.

The villagers of Chipping Cleghorn are agog with curiosity when the Gazette advertises: “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 spiteful hoax? Unable to resist the mysterious invitation, the locals arrive at Little Paddocks at the appointed time when, without warning, the lights go out and a gun is fired. When the come back on, a gruesome scene is revealed. An impossible event? Only Miss Marple can unravel it.
