I don't want to spoil a book for anyone so pls don't read unless you've read like all of her Miss Marple books so it won't spoil!

I caught the last 1/2 hour or 45 min of this on tv Monday night and realized it was one of hers because of Miss Marple's character. These people were at this mansion and when I started watching a man who had heart problems had just died because the lift was out of order (supposedly) and he took the stairs which triggered a heart attack. this man who I think was a tennis player was there with his wife whom he s upposedly left his 1st wife for...of course the 1st wife was there too and her name was Audrey or Aubrey and as the mystery unfolded the wealthy woman who owned the house was murdered in her bed and too many conflicting clues about who did it. there was a tennis racket, suit found with different hairs on it and blood, rope, etc. I have some of her books but don't recall this exact story. I know twists and t urns are popular in her books but I'd like to read this one from start to finish(I'm one of those who enjoy something the 2ndt ime around even knowing the ending!) in this one it looks like he's being set up, then like she's being set up(1st wife), until it's confusing who did what.

ETA: I finally searched pbs (the public broadcasting in my area) and they still had it listed as part of an ongoing series so i cross-searched amazon since the description on here didn't say enough but it's 'Towards Zero' and that's one I've never heard of!

Susanna, *is* that a real Miss Marple series? I have not heard of it either. Is it maybe renamed?


I don't know how big of a fan you are, but you can't beat Joan Hickson as Miss Marple- she was hand picked by Agatha Christie herself to someday play the character. I have bought the DVD's off of amazon as they are now being sold there. I LOVE the series!!!
