Publisher's Summary

One minute, silly Heather Badcock had been gabbling on at her movie idol, the glamorous Marina Gregg. The next, Heather suffered a massive seizure. But for whom was the deadly poison really intended?

Marina's frozen expression suggested she had witnessed something horrific. But, while others searched for material evidence, Jane Marple conducted a very different investigation: into human nature.

Exquisite narration for an exquisite tale

Joan Hickson is THE Miss Marple - her ability with spoken dialogue is fabulous. Id found the recording of her version of Nemesis slightly hard to hear; it was also wonderful but some of the sounds were a bit fuzzy and hard to make out. Not so with this. It was clear as a bell!

Mirror cracked from side to side

Excellent, the story tells your past never stays in the past, famous actress retires, to St Mary Mead, they hold a fete, to meet the local community St John's Ambulance service, a special group are invited in, one lady meets the actress, and tells a story then 5 minutes later , she's dead!!!!! be prepared for the twists

Nice read.

Good plot, as usual, with a touch of glamour and a shiver down the spine.
