Summary
Miss Marple solves mysteries set against a rich background of grand English estates, gorgeous scenery, and post-WWII period detail. The mirror crack'd from side to side: Hollywood star Marina Gregg has moved into Gossington Hall. When Marina and her dashing young husband host a party for the village, a garrulous fan drops dead after drinking a poisoned cocktail. The secrets of Chimneys: Miss Marple accompanies Lady Virginia Revel to her family home of Chimneys, once famed for its diplomatic gatherings. A murder in a secret passageway puts Miss Marple on the path to uncovering Chimney's dark past. The blue geranium: Did the wealthy and unpopular Mary Pritchard really die of shock when the geranium on her wallpaper turned blue? And what about the murder that happened soon after, and the body discovered shortly before. Miss Marple has new evidence and must stop a court hearing before the wrong person is found guilty
