Responding to her friend Carrie's urgent invitation, Miss Marple senses danger when she arrives at her friend's sprawling estate. To Miss Marple's surprise, Carrie's remote Gothic monstrosity has been turned into a rehabilitation center for delinquent boys. Some of Carrie's own children and grandchildren have also taken up residence at Stonygates and have mixed feelings about the way their mother is squandering the family fortune. Then the brutal murder of a stranger to Stonygates would indicate that philanthropy is the least of Carrie's problems. Pure coincidence? Miss Marple thinks not, but must use all her cunning to solve the riddle of the stranger' visit and his murder.

Another pearl from Agatha Christie. As is generally the case, much better than the movie, although Joan Hickson does an excellent job as Miss Marple. Highly recommend this book to Agatha Christie fans.

I really love Miss Marple but this is not one of my favorite of her stories.
There was too much drama and misunderstanding and I didn't think this story showed Miss Marple at her best.

Not my favorite Agatha Christie, but still a classic nonetheless!

Lewis Serrocold: [Walter is] young, crude, and he comes from a country [USA] where a man is esteemed by the success he makes of life. Miss Marple: Whilst here we are very fond of failures.
