Miss Marple always makes a point of ‘taking an interest’ in other people’s affairs, though nothing engages her curiosity quite as much as sudden death, scandal, blackmail or murder.
A wounded man in a church, buried treasure, a fatal riding accident, a corpse and a tape-measure, a girl framed for theft, a suspect with a dagger… all cases to be relished by the astonishing Miss Jane Marple.
This collection includes as a bonus the Miss Marple story Greenshaw’s Folly and two additional mysteries: The Dressmaker’s Doll and In a Glass Darkly.
