DESCRIPTION

4. 50 From Paddington

The novel features Miss Marple.Elspeth McGillicuddy has come from Scotland to visit her old friend Jane Marple. On the way, she sees a woman strangled in a passing train. Only Miss Marple believes her story as there is no evidence of wrongdoing. The first task is to ascertain where the body could have been hidden. Comparison of the facts of the murder with the train timetable and the local geography, lead to the grounds of Rutherford Hall as the only possible location: it is shielded from the surrounding community, the railway abuts the grounds, and so on. Lucy Eyelesbarrow, a young professional housekeeper & an acquaintance of Mrs Marple is sent undercover to the Rutherford Hall.The police conclude that the body in the sarcophagus is that of Martine, but this proves not to be the case, when Lady Stoddart West, mother of James Stoddart West, a schoolfriend of Alexander's, reveals that she is Martine. Although she and Edmund had intended to marry, Edmund died before they could do so and she later married an SOE officer, settling in England. Miss Marple had correctly concluded that her friend would recognise the real murderer if she saw him again in a similar pose. It transpires that the murdered woman had been married to Dr Quimper many years earlier. Being a devout Catholic, she refused to divorce him, so he decided to murder her and be free to marry Emma, thus inheriting Josiah's fortune, once he had eliminated the other heirs.
