Publisher's Summary

It's seven in the morning. The Bantrys wake to find the body of a young woman in their library. She is wearing evening dress and heavy make-up, which is now smeared across her cheeks. But who is she? How did she get there? And what is the connection with another dead girl, whose charred remains are later discovered in an abandoned quarry?

Agatha Christie as ingenious as ever. Great plot and keeps the mind ticking. The book is very well read too.

Brilliant Body in The Library

Characters, actions and attitudes obviously somewhat of their time, the late 1940s /early 1950s of Mr Gove's imagination, but an ingenious, well told story for all that.

For me, Joan Hickson IS Miss Marple, so I was a bit doubtful about buying this reading by Stephanie Cole, but SC is brilliant and, from a technical point of view, actually a better reader. Thoroughly recommended.
