Responding to a friend's urgent invitation, Miss Jane Marple arrives at her sprawling estate. To Marple's surprise, it's been turned into a home for delinquent boys-and a handful of greedy relatives. In this group, murder comes as no surprise.

This was the best Miss Marple book I've read so far. Unlike the earlier books, Miss Marple is actually an important character in this story from the very beginning. This particular plot was very good. Usually, I can figure out who the killer is but this one kept me guessing. Interesting characters. One of Christie's best. Well edited.
