Publisher's Summary

Rex Fortescue, king of a financial empire, was sipping tea in his "counting house" when he suffered an agonising and sudden death. On later inspection, the pockets of the deceased were found to contain traces of cereals. Yet, it was the incident in the parlour which confirmed Jane Marple's suspicion that here she was looking at a case of crime by rhyme.


What the Critics Say

Joan Hickson IS Miss Marple

So I'm biased but I simply love Joan Hickson narrating this series of books. Miss Marple has always been my favourite Christie character and to find the series narrated by Joan Hickson is a bonus. Christie fans you simply can't go wrong!

wonderful narration and a good whodunnit!

I just love Joan Hickson's narration and although I knew from the tv series who the murderer was, I still enjoyed it thoroughly.
