A classic Marple mystery, read by Emilia Fox.
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.

Classic tale, a classic listening experience
No problem recommending this one. Well read. The different voice characterisations are well done. I have been 'hopping' between reading the book, listening to it on the exercise bike and watching the DVD version. The audio by far beats the rest.
Mrs McGillicudy's witnessing of the murder. Fleeting but intense.
The different characterisations are well delivered. Emily so easily moves from old Mr Crackenthorpe to Lucy Eyellesbarrow.
At times very funny with all of the 'proposals' of marriage. And quite outrageous the way some of the characters flippantly deal with murder.
I am always amazed how 'little' Miss Marple actually appears in the storyline.
