** A Murder is Announced by Agatha Christie

Miss Marple stars in A Murder Is Announced, which starts, unsurprisingly, with the announcement that a murder will be committed, and it is — unleashing a torrent of family secrets, more murders, all under the watchful eye of Miss Marple, who seems able to conjure up enough bodies to make her a suspect!  The ingenious denouement required more twists in the family tree than I would have liked, but still a great story, and one that subtly shows the food rationing and other struggles of Britain right after WWII.
