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.

Another great investigation by Miss Marple

Well told by Stephanie Cole, good characterisation too for all the persons. Bit of a struggle to see how the real culprit was detected but as a true Marple fan I didn't mind that.
