Summary

A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation starring June Whitfield as Miss Marple, the deceptively mild spinster sleuth.
Wealthy businessman Rex Fortescue is found dead with rye grain in his pocket. His death is followed in quick succession by a woman dying while eating bread and honey, and a maid in her garden.
Inspector Neele, in charge of investigating the spate of murders, consults with Miss Marple, who has an interesting and surprising theory to offer. She senses the murderer is dispatching his victims on the basis of the children's nursery rhyme 'Sing a Song of Sixpence'.

VERY ENJOYABLE

Very enjoyable Agatha Christie starring June Whitfield, not my favourable actress, mine is the late Joan Hickson, perfect Oh! Marple. However; June Whitfield is rather good for radio. I can listen to this one anytime and enjoy as much as the first time, even though I knew from the start who did it. Afraid Christie was too obvious with this one, but we forgive her. The Pocket Full of Rye is a comforting listen. Well done BBC.

Well Done

This was an enjoyable book. There is a reason Agatha Christie's books have lasted so long. The dramatization was well done too.
