Miss Marple is Agatha Christie’s best loved fictional character, and she created 12 novels featuring the loveable elderly spinster-turned- detective with Sleeping Murder being the last. Famous for her razor-sharp mind and those piercing blue eyes that never missed a detail, Miss Jane Marple is portrayed perfectly by British actress June Whitfield in this BBC Radio 4 dramatisation, now available on CD and MP3 audiobook. With Miss Marple’s sharp wit and strong will, no murderer has yet managed to pull the wool over Miss Marple’s eyes - but what surprises will her final story bring?
The scene is soon set in the quaint village of Dilmouth where we are introduced to Gwenda Reed, who has come to the village slightly ahead of her husband from New Zealand in search of their dream house. After Gwenda finds what she is looking for, we are soon drawn into a deep mystery that surrounds the seemingly idyllic house. Old, creepy steps that are strangely covered by bushes are discovered and connecting doorways with eerie cupboards decorated with wallpaper that Gwenda hasn’t yet bought, all make her think she is going crazy.
What’s behind Gwenda’s newly found intuition and can Miss Marple solve an old murder before the murderer returns to strike again?
