4:50 From Paddington By Agatha Christie, read by Joan Hickson
For an instant, the two trains ran side by side. In that frozen moment, Elspeth McGillicuddy witnessed a murder. Helplessly, she stared out of her train window as a man remorselessly tightened his grip around a woman’s throat. The body crumpled. Then the other train drew away. But who would take her story seriously? After all, there were no suspects, no other witnesses – and as she awaited news reports, apparently no corpse. Everyone but Miss Jane Marple was willing to dismiss Elspeth’s distraught report of a murder. Miss Marple knew her old friend was incapable of imagining such a thing. And the challenge of no corpse being reported arouses Miss Marple to action. It is just her kind of case!
