Extended Description and Notes

" 4.50 from Paddington (Miss Marple) is a detective fiction novel by Agatha Christie, first published in November, 1957 by Collins Crime Club. A Collins Crime Club Choice This work was published in the United States at the same time as What Mrs McGillicuddy Saw! , by Dodd, Mead.The novel was published in serial form before the book was released in each nation, and under different titles. For an instant the two trains ran together, side by side. In that frozen moment, Elspeth witnessed a murder. Helplessly, she stared out of her carriage window as a man remorselessly tightened his grip around a woman's throat. The body crumpled. Then the other train drew away. But who, apart from Miss Marple, would take her story seriously? After all, there were no suspects, no other witnesses… and no corpse."

Synopsis

E-book exclusive extras:1) Christie biographer Charles Osborne's essay on 4.50 from Paddington;2) "The Marples": the complete guide to all the cases of crime literature's foremost female detective.For an instant the two trains ran side by side. In that frozen moment, Elspeth McGillicuddy stared helplessly out of her carriage window as a man tightened his grip around a woman’s throat. The body crumpled. Then the other train drew away. But who, apart from Mrs McGillicuddy’s friend Jane Marple, would take her story seriously? After all, there are no other witnesses, no suspects, and no case—for there is no corpse, and no one is missing. Miss Marple asks her highly efficient and intelligent young friend Lucy Eyelesbarrow to infiltrate the Crackenthorpe family, who seem to be at the heart of the mystery, and help unmask a murderer.
