The villagers of Chipping Cleghorn, including Jane Marple, are agog with curiosity over an advertisement in the local gazette which reads: 'A murder is announced and will take place on Friday October 29th, at Little Paddocks at 6.30 p.m A childish practical joke? Or a hoax intended to scare poor Letitia Blacklock? Unable to resist the mysterious invitation, a crowd begins to gather at Little Paddocks at the appointed time when, without warning, the lights go out! A Murder Is Announced by Agatha Christie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
In the typical town of Chipping Cleghorn, a murder is announced by the “ Chipping Cleghorn Gazette “.
By 18.30pm, at 29th. October, in Little Paddocks, the murder game will take place and the town residents will attend this little gathering.
Here begins the story of a mystery murder solved by one of the most famous and sweet old ladies, Miss Marple.
I’m a big fan of Miss Marple and Sherlock Holmes, and all it’s fictional characters, all it’s surroundings and subsequent plots where murder is king or queen.
If you’re in the mood for a plot where all it’s fictional characters are delicious and murder is the main character, read this book or another one of her collection of works, you won’t be disappointed .
