Summary

Miss Marple senses danger when she visits a friend living in a Victorian mansion which doubles as a rehabilitiation centre for delinquents. Her fears are confirmed when a youth fires a revolver at the administrator, Lewis Serrocold. Neither is injured. But a mysterious visitor, Mr. Gilbrandsen, is less fortunate: shot dead simultaneously in another part of the building. Pure coincidence? Miss Marple thinks not, and vows to discover the real reason for Mr. Gilbrandsen's visit.

Two incomparable ladies

It's such a joy to have the great Agatha Christie's Miss Marple stories ready by the definitive Marple herself. Joan Hickson is beyond all comparison.

I wouldn't say one the best.

This is not one of my favourites to be honest and I truly appreciate it because Joan Hickson is the performer, I worked out who the killer was from the outset from what my grandmother used say was a smokescreen.

They do it with Mirrors

Miss Marple, invited to see a friend she hadn't seen in 25 years, is it going to be a nice peaceful rest or is their something going on at Stoney gates?
