Murder at the Vicarage marks the debut of Miss Jane Marple, the unflinching and much-loved female detective of Agatha Christie. With her gift of sniffing out the malevolent side of human nature, Miss Marple is led to a crime scene at the local vicarage on her first case. The magistrate Colonel Proth... eroe, whom everybody in town hates, was shot through the head. No-one heard that shot. There is no lead. Yet, it seems that everyone around the vicarage has a reason to want the Colonel dead. It's a race against the clock as Miss Marple sets off on the mysterious killer's twisted trail without so much as a bit of local police help.

I was thinking, that when my time comes, I should be sorry if the only plea I had to offer was that of justice. Because it might mean that only justice would be meted out to me.
