A Murder is Announced

Agatha Christie: A Murder is Announced. Adapted by Leslie Darbon. Published by Samuel French. Poster shows an image of a clock set to 6:30 PM.

An announcement in the local paper states the time and place when a murder is to occur in Miss Blacklock’s Victorian house. The victim is not one of the house’s several occupants, but an unexpected and unknown visitor.  What follows is a classic Christie puzzle of mixed motives, concealed identities, a second death and a determined inspector grimly following the case’s twists and turns.  Fortunately, Miss Marple  is on hand to provide the solution – at some risk to herself – in a dramatic final confrontation.
