Publisher's Summary

The villagers of Chipping Cleghorn are agog with curiosity over an advertisement in the local gazette which reads: "A murder is announced and will take place on Friday October 29th, at Little Paddocks at 6.30 p.m." A childish practical joke? Unable to resist the mysterious invitation, a crowd begins to gather at Little Paddocks at the appointed time when, without warning, the lights go out.


What the Critics Say

"Joan Hickson: you can't beat her, you know. So enjoy this not-so-fluffy old lady doing her Marple thing. Genius." (Time Out)

Great Book but...

I liked the book but unlike watching on the tv it's hard to keep track of character's and who is who. Though after the reveal I'll be re-reading until I pick up the clues myself.
