Summary

For an instant the two trains ran together, side by side. In that frozen moment, Elspeth witnessed a murder. Helplessly, she stared out of her carriage window as a man remorselessly tightened his grip around a woman's throat. The body crumpled. Then the other train drew away. But who, apart from Miss Marple, would take her story seriously? After all, there were no suspects, no other witnesses...and no corpse.

Joan Hickson is perfect

One of my favourite Marple stories, even though the lady herself doesn't feature that much. Joan Hickson is fabulous - Marple to the bone :)

Perfection in audio form.

I loved the story and Joan Hickson gives it life and soul, making it easy to visualize all the action.
