Volume 1: "The murder at the vicarage": With her gift for sniffing out the malevolent side of human nature, Miss Marple is led on her first case to a crime scene at the local vicarage.

But soon a series of vicious poison-pen letters destroys the village's quiet charm. "The body in the library": The Bantrys wake to findthe 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 whois she? How did she get there? "A murder is announced": Villagers expect a fun game after a Gazette announcement of murder, but when lights flash off, shots ring out, and a masked burglar falls dead, the Inspector and vicar's wife Bunch call in expert Miss Jane Marple.
Description
Volume 2: "They Do It with Mirrors": Miss Marple must solve a crime in a rambling country mansion being used for the rehabilitation of young criminals. "A Pocketful of Rye": An old nursery rhyme comes true in a grotesque double murder. Only Miss Marple sees the connection and that the next victim will be an old acquaintance - unless she can uncover the murderer in time. "4.50 from Paddington": A deadly family intrigue as a murder is witnessed from a passing train. "The Mirror Crack'd from Side to Side": Tragedy struck when a once beautiful film actress throws a party and a woman dies. The intended victim seems to be the actress. Then another woman is murdered.

Her London stay seems a bit too perfect until she discovers something sinister behind the Edwardian façade At Bertram's Hotel. How can Miss Marple resist visiting the seaside villa of a young couple plagued by terrifying memories of a Sleeping Murder? And how will she solve an unspecified crime in Nemesis, when her only clue is a ticket for a tour of historic homes and gardens, pre-paid by a dead man?
