"A murder is announced, and will take place on Friday, October 29th, at Little Paddocks, at 6:30 pm. . .
The ad in the local paper is a joke, of course. In bad taste, of course.
But none of Miss Blacklock's friends can resist calling on her at the appointed hour. Certainly not Miss Marple. . .
At 6:30 precisely, the lights go out. . ." -- from the back cover
This was a good mystery with lots of twists. I liked how Miss Marple and the Detective Inspector Craddock gradually put together the truth surrounding the murder announcement.
