A Murder Is Announced - Miss Marple, Bk 5
Author: Agatha Christie
The personal ad was intriguing: an invitation to partake in a "murder" at the home of Letitia Blacklock. The uncharacteristic prank comes as a surprise to Letitia's friends -- and a bigger surprise to Letitia herself. Still, the proper hostess welcomes her unexpected guests for an evening of fun.

This was a good mystery with lots of twists. I liked how Miss Marple and the Detective Inspector Craddock gradually put together the truth surrounding the murder announcement.

A murder is advertised in the personals column of the local blather giving the time and place. But, who is to be the victim; who the culprit? These are the questions for the police and for who else but Miss Marple. Although the inimitable Miss Marple provides the explanation, we are left to understand that the police inspector has solved this one. At any rate it is a question of identities. Is anyone whom they purport to be? Well, it is entertaining, but pay attention.

A murder is advertised in the personals column of the local blather giving the time and place. But, who is to be the victim; who the culprit? These are the questions for the police and for who else but Miss Marple. This two act play was adapted by Leslie Darbon from Dame Agatha's novel. Although the inimitable Miss Marple provides the explanation, we are left to understand that the police inspector has solved this one. I wonder what the book will tell me if I can find it? At any rate it is a play on identities. Is anyone whom they purport to be? Well, it is an entertaining play, but pay attention.
