The tiny Caribbean island of St Honore is a tropical paradise.
But for Miss Marple, enjoying a well-earned rest from her busy life in the village of St.
Mary Mead, it is a place where nothing ever seems to happen.
Then old Major Palgrave tells her the strange story of a suspected double murderer.
As rumours begin to circulate, the elderly sleuth is not alone in suspecting that things are not as they seem. And when a death that is indisputably murder occurs, Miss Marple finds an unlikey ally in the cantankerous crippled millionaire Mr Rafiel.
Together, can the pair discover the truth? June Whitfield stars as Miss Marple with Windsor Davies as Major Palgrave in this BBC Radio 4 dramatisation from the world's best-known mystery writer. "Throws off false clues and misleading events as only a master of the art can do". (New York Times). 2 CDs. 2 hrs 10 mins.
