Storyline

While traveling on a train to London, Miss Marple is told by a woman she has never met, Lavinia Pinkerton, that she is certain there have been two murders in her village of Wychwood. When Lavinia dies in what is purported to be an accident - she fell, or was pushed, down the escalator in a tube station - Miss Marple decides to visit Wychwood and see what she can find. As Miss Marple is apt to say, one English village is like another and Wychwood has its secrets like any other. The first woman to die was Florie Gibbs who, despite being experienced in such things, supposedly ate poison mushrooms she picked herself. The second was the local vicar who failed to wear his mask when using poison near his beehives. The third is a young woman who, it is said, accidentally drank hat dye instead of her cough medicine. Miss Marple finds a clue that points to a motive with origins many years before and a secret someone will do anything, including murder, to keep hidden. Written by garykmcd

Annoying
27 July 2010 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Just read the book so I can't be all mistaken; there are no bees, no vicars, no bomber jacket clad sleuths on motorcycles chasing any long legged blonds, no election campaign going on – and certainly no left leaning young country doctor, in Agatha Christie's original with this title. Not even miss Marple is present in this odd little village with all its funerals, simply because it is not written as such! It is in fact no Agatha Christie story at all, except names and characters are used most hap hazardous. The only mystery is why this baffling yarn bears her (brand) name. If modern screenwriters are so ingenious, why not use their own names?
