In utter disbelief, Jane Marple read the letter addressed to her from the recently deceased Mr Rafael - an acquaintance she had met briefly on her travels. He had left instructions for her to investigate a crime after his death. The only problem was, he had failed to tell her who was involved or where and when the crime had been committed. It was most intriguing. Soon she is faced with a new crime - the ultimate crime - murder! It seems that someone is adamant that past evils remain buried... Miss Marple, the most unlikely looking detective, has to use all her cunning and intuition as she investigates a series of very different murders in this excellent paperback selection from the Queen of Crime.
