4:50 From Paddington is the story of Miss Marple's investigation into a murder that took place on a train. Her friend Mrs McGillicuddy arrives at her door one day with a story about seeing a woman murdered on a train. The police don't believe her because no body was recovered, but Miss Marple knows better.
She uses her personal common sesnse approach to come to the realisation that the body must be hidden somewhere at Rutherford Hall, an old family home alongside the railway tracks. She arranges a friend of hers to gain employment at Rutherford Hall and do some investigations into the family.
These investigations lead to a whole host of hidden secrets, but Miss Marple is determined to catch the killer before they kill again.
Not one of Christie's best, but then I am more of a Poirot fan than a Marple fan. Miss Marple herself barely lifted a finger to help solve this crime and the other characters didn't have enough charisma to keep me interested in their plight.
All in all, the story was a bit slow and….. English for my tastes. I know that sounds crazy, but there you have it.
