Amateur detective Miss Marple reads an advertisement in the local paper announcing that a murder will occur at a specific time and place. It's similar to a wedding or funeral notice. Shocking! Luckily, our sleuth is acquainted with the owner of the curious crime scene. The usual suspects (the batty, the beautiful, and the brawny) are no match for the pure genius of our heroine. With deadly aim and quiet perseverance, she peels away the layers of deception. One of Agatha Christie's finest mysteries.
