A malicious letter.
A tragic death.
A village filled with suspects.
Nothing ever happens in the sleepy village of Lymstock. Until letters accusing the villagers of unspeakable acts start to appear. They try to dismiss them as a cruel hoax, but then one of the recipients is found dead.
The letter next to her body reads simply, ‘I can’t go on’. As fear spreads among the villagers, Jane Marple must uncover who is writing these letters – before anyone else is hurt.
