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.
Never underestimate Miss Marple
'Miss Marple is one of the most subversive, the most original, most distinctive characters in fiction. Often underestimated and overlooked, she always triumphs in the end.'
'Beyond all doubt the puzzle in The Moving Finger is fit for experts.'
