Summary
Miss Marple returns to help solve mysteries with her keen powers of observation and her quiet common-sense analysis. A pocket full of rye: Who poisoned the wealthy businessman Rex rotescue? Miss Marple barely has time to ponder this question before her former maid Gladys turns up strangled on the Fortescue estate. Murder is Easy: Murder is easy, says elederly Miss Pinkerton to Miss Marple during a chance encounter on a train. However, when Miss Pinkerton herself dies, Miss Marple believes it was no accident. The Do it with Mirrors: Miss Marple's old friend Carrie-Louise has always had a soft heart for charitable causes. This time it's juvenile criminals lodged in a reformatory on her estate. Murder and mystery follow needing Miss Marple's sleuthing skills. Why Didn't they Ask Evans? A dying man's last words turn young Bobby Attfield into an amateur detective. With the help of two assistants, socialite Frankie Derwent and Jane Marple, he sets out to solve the riddle they pose
