Colonel Protheroe, local magistrate and overbearing landowner, is the most detested man in the little English village of St. Mary Mead. Everyone, even the vicar, wishes he was dead. And very soon he is--shot in the head in the vicar's study. A visiting artist confesses to the murder, but residents saw him elsewhere when the Colonel was shot. If he didn't do it, than who did? Is he protecting the Colonel's wife whom he loves? Faced with a surfeit of suspects, only the inscrutable Miss Marple can unravel the tangled web of clues.

An excellent mystery read by a relentlessly entertaining narrator who is truly throwing his all into giving each character his or her own unique voice. Each character is very engaging and I found myself fascinated by the entire lot of them and desperate for more of Miss Marple's adventures by the end.

My only complaint is that due to the complex nature of the mystery and the various moving parts such a story must inevitably contain, it's easy to lose sight of things when you're only listening to the story, especially if you're a visual learner like me. I found myself wishing I had the book in my hands so I could go back and re-read things that I had missed. That aside though, this was an excellent audio book that I would heartily recommend to any Christie fan, or anyone looking for a good whodunnit set in polite society.
