Sleeping murder: Gwenda arrives in England, looking forward to her impending marriage and new life in a lovely old coastal estate. But almost immediately, she begins to experience sinister visions. Enter Miss Marple, who concludes that the bride-to-be witnessed a murder in that very house as a child. But how could she, since Gwenda had spent her entire life in India?

By the pricking of my thumbs: Something wicked this way comes to the Sunny Ridge Retirement Home for Ladies. Miss Marple teams up with detective duo Tommy and Tuppence to investigate the suspicious death of Tommy's Aunt Ada and sudden disappearance of Ada's friend, Mrs. Lancaster, both residents of Sunny Ridge. An oddly doctored painting and tantalizing crossword clues lead Tuppence and and Miss Marple to Farrell St. Edmund, a village that seems straight out of a fairy tale complete with lurking evil

Moving finger: When Jerry Burton moves to Lymstock to convalesce after a motorcycle crash, he meets villagers who traffic in gossip and double-entendres. But the accusations in several anonymous poison-pen letters go beyond the usual prattle. In fact, scandalous hate mail leads two citizens to commit suicide. Or were they murdered? With her keen powers of observation and quiet common-sense analysis, Miss Marple uncovers the shameful secrets that sent a quaint village into turmoil

Sittaford mystery: Among the guests at a Dartmoor hotel, a séance starts out as an amusing diversion to pass the time on a snowy evening but then takes a sinister turn. Supernatural events point to danger to Trevelyan, an infamous local staying at the hotel. Meanwhile, six miles away at Sittaford House, Miss Marple finds a not-so-supernatural death threat naming the same man. With snow piling up and blocking the roads, can anyone reach him in time?
