A malicious letter
A tragic death
A village filled with suspects
Nothing ever happens in the sleepy village of Lymstock.
Until letters accusing the villagers of unspeakable acts start to appear.
They try to dismiss them as a cruel hoax, but then one of the recipients is found dead. The letter next to her body reads simply, ‘I can’t go on’.
As fear spreads among the villagers, Jane Marple must uncover who is writing these letters – before anyone else is hurt.

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.
