They Do It With Mirrors
A shocking crime
A mansion filled with suspects
Ruth Van Rydock can’t shake the feeling that something terrible is going to happen to her sister at Stonygates house.
Her old school friend Jane Marple decides it’s time to pay a visit.
But this grand Victorian mansion isn’t just a family home – it’s also a correctional facility for wayward young men.
And when something terrible does indeed happen, Miss Marple must face her most eccentric cast of suspects yet.
A Pocket Full of Rye
A wealthy family
A fatal cup of tea
Rex Fortescue was enjoying his morning cup of tea when he met his untimely end.
Suspicions naturally turn to his wife. He was filthy rich, after all.
Then she too is found dead.
Strange clues have Scotland Yard’s finest minds scratching their heads. Poisoned marmalade. Dead blackbirds. A victim found with a pocketful of rye.
It’s up to Jane Marple to put the pieces of this strange puzzle together…
4.50 from Paddington
Side by side for a brief moment
In that moment, a murder
Elspeth McGillicuddy is positive she witnessed a man strangling a woman to death.
But it was only the merest glimpse through a carriage window as the trains drew parallel.
She is the only witness, there are no suspects, and, most importantly, there is no corpse.
Who, apart from her friend Jane Marple, would take her seriously?
The Mirror Crack’d From Side to Side
A movie star
A deadly cocktail
When glamorous Marina Gregg came to live in St Mary Mead, tongues were sure to wag.
But, with a local gossip’s sudden death, has one tongue wagged a bit too much?
As the police chase false leads, and two more victims meet untimely ends, Miss Marple starts to ask her own questions.
What secrets might link a peaceful English village and a star of the silver screen?
A Caribbean Mystery
A Caribbean resort
Strangers thrown together
Is there evil in paradise?
Major Palgrave enjoys an audience, and, in Miss Marple, he discovers a captive audience too polite to walk away.
But midway through recounting the tale of a multiple murder, he stops suddenly when something, or someone, catches his eye.
Then, when he’s found dead the following day, Miss Marple suspects that someone wanted to silence the talkative major. Permanently.
