Agatha Christie's classic Miss Marple railway mystery, reissued in a beautiful new classic hardcover edition designed to appeal to the latest generation of Agatha Christie fans and book lovers.

'Oh, Jane! I've just seen a murder!'

For an instant the two trains ran together, side by side. In that frozen moment, Elspeth witnessed a murder. Helplessly, she stared out of her carriage window as a man remorselessly tightened his grip around a woman's throat. The body crumpled. Then the other train drew away.

But who, apart from Miss Marple, would take her story seriously? After all, there were no suspects, no other witnesses... and no corpse.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'A model detective story, there is never a dull moment.' The Times

'The suspense is agonising.' Daily Mail

'Miraculously fresh from a vintage pen.' Sunday Dispatch

'Without the female of the species, indeed, detective fiction would be in a bad way. Miss Christie never harrows her readers, being content to intrigue and amuse them.' Times Literary Supplement

'The great mistress of the last-minute switch is at it again... even the experts have given up any attempts to out-guess Miss Christie.' New Yorker

'Precisely what one expects: the most delicious bamboozling possible in a babble of bright talk and a comprehensive bristle of suspicion all adeptly managed to keep you much too alert elsewhere to see the neat succession of clues that catch a murderer we never so much as thought of.' New York Herald Tribune

“Amazing!!!”

This book had me gripping on to it so badly that i couldn't let go. The whole plot is just dumbfounding. Miss Marple's friend witnesses a murder taking place whilst on a moving training, this scene had taken... More

“Low-commotion”

I’m such a fan of Agatha Christie that I’m virtually a claque all on my own, but I won’t pretend I wasn’t a little disappointed with 4.50 from Paddington. It’s an atypical one from her, and doesn’t perhaps show off... More
