Publisher Description

Two trains

Side by side for a brief moment

In that moment, a murder

Elspeth McGillicuddy is positive she witnessed a man strangling a woman to death.

But it was only the merest glimpse through a carriage window as the trains drew parallel.

She is the only witness, there are no suspects, and, most importantly, there is no corpse.

Who, apart from her friend Jane Marple, would take her seriously?

About the author

Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. Her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, written towards the end of the First World War, introduced us to Hercule Poirot, who was to become the most popular detective in crime fiction since Sherlock Holmes. She is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and another billion in over 100 foreign countries. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 19 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott.
