Publisher's Summary

A BBC Radio full-cast dramatisation starring June Whitfield as Miss Marple, the deceptively mild spinster sleuth.

'A murder is announced and will take place on Friday, October 29, at Little Paddocks, at 6:30pm. Friends please accept this, the only intimation.'

Nestled among the usual notices about dogs for sale and appeals for domestic help, the startling entry in the personal column of the Chipping Cleghorn Gazette has the the entire village agog with curiosity. Is it a game? And who is meant to attend?

Sure enough, the evening sees a crowd of residents standing expectantly in the drawing-room at Little Paddocks. Then the clock strikes the half-hour, the lights go out, and three gunshots ring in the dark. When the lights go back on, the promised murder has been committed. Can Miss Marple work out what has happened and why?

    "Fan of Mrs. Marple"

    Enjoyed all the different character voices and the sound effects that add atmosphere and makes one feel as though we are right there with them listening and watching everything, but invisible.

    "A drama to die for!"

    Superb performance of a classic. Excellent cast, June Whitfield is an extremely credible Marple. Story is wonderfully far fetched but all the better for it! Lovely short Marplesque musical interludes add to the listening pleasure. A relaxing Sunday afternoon listen.
