The iconic Miss Marple must investigate the case of a girl found dead in Agatha Christie's classic mystery, The Body in the Library.

It's seven in the morning. The Bantrys wake to find the body of a young woman in their library. She is wearing an evening dress and heavy makeup, which is now smeared across her cheeks. But who is she? How did she get there? And what is the connection with another dead girl, whose charred remains are later discovered in an abandoned quarry?

Reviews

"One of the most ingeniously contrived of all her murder stories."--Birmingham Post
"Professional detectives are no match for elderly spinsters... it is hard not to be impressed."--Times Literary Supplement (London)
"Agatha Christie has made it awfully hard for the rest of us, because whenever we think of a clever twist--she's already done it."--Elizabeth Peters, New York Times bestselling author of the Amelia Peabody novels
"Genuine old-crusted Christie."--Time magazine
