    The Murder at the Vicarage

    When the hated Colonel Protheroe is found murdered in the sleepy village of St Mary Mead, Miss Marple is puzzled why so many people want to confess.

    Everyone in Chipping Cleghorn is intrigued by the advertisement predicting a murder at Little Paddocks. But when the lights go out at the appointed hour, no one thinks it's a joke any more.

    They Do It With Mirrors

    To reassure an old friend, Miss Marple agrees to go down to Stonygates, a rambling country mansion. There she finds a curious ménage - an extended family and a reformatory for young criminals - where violence seems just below the surface.

    A Pocketful of Rye

    An old nursery rhyme comes true in a grotesque double murder. Only Miss Marple sees the connection and that the next victim will be an old acquaintance - unless she can uncover the murderer in time.

    At Bertram's Hotel

    There is something rather too perfect about Bertram's Hotel, Miss Marple decides during a stay there in London. Even the murder seems rehearsed.


    A friend asks Miss Marple to investigate a crime. Instead of giving any clues, he books her on a coach tour of historic homes. Murder is on the itinerary.
