Some people can play the harp. Some can wrestle. Some can weave. Not many people can do all three! In Snowdonia, in the eighteenth century, lived a woman called Marged who could play the harp, wrestle, weave, as well as row boats, compose songs, make her own instruments and much else besides. Marged was a tall strong woman, who would take no nonsense from anyone.

In Mrs. McGinty's Dead, one of Agatha Christie's most ingenious mysteries, the intrepid Hercule Poirot must look into the case of a brutally murdered landlady.

Mrs. McGinty died from a brutal blow to the back of her head. Suspicion falls immediately on her shifty lodger, James Bentley, whose clothes reveal traces of the victim's blood and hair. Yet something is amiss: Bentley just doesn't seem like a murderer.

Could the answer lie in an article clipped from a newspaper two days before the death? With a desperate killer still free, Hercule Poirot will have to stay alive long enough to find out. . . .
