Book of the Month: The Mirror Crack'd From Side to Side

1st June 2018

Join in with our Book of the Month reading for June. This month - a superb Miss Marple mystery, The Mirror Crack'd From Side to Side. 

One minute, silly Heather Badcock had been gabbling on at her movie idol, the glamorous Marina Gregg. The next, Heather suffered a massive seizure. But for whom was the deadly poison really intended?

Marina’s frozen expression suggested she had witnessed something horrific. But, while others searched for material evidence, Jane Marple conducted a very different investigation – into human nature.

We join Miss Marple as she reminisces on times past, and comes to terms with modern developments in her beloved St Mary Mead. Among the changes is the arrival of glamorous Hollywood actress Marina Gregg, who has purchased Gossington Hall, former home of Colonel and Dolly Bantry. Gossington soon becomes the location for another crime...
