"Miss Marple's Mid Norfolk Marmalade Murder"

It is May 1954 - Miss Marple and her friend the Reverend William Havers are on their way to Dereham for a meeting with some of his old parishioners, Violet Chesterton, matriarch of the famous family behind the best-selling brand, 'Chesterton Marmalade', and her son, John. There are rumours starting to circulate that a few skeletons in a few cupboards may be in danger of coming to light, and that perhaps the family fortune wasn't entirely made through the marmalade business. Perhaps the Reverend and Miss Marple can help set things to rights!

Affairs, illegitimate children, a lost heir to the family fortune, and even murder are on the cards in the Mid-Norfolk Railway Murders!
