In Agatha Christie’s classic mystery 4:50 From Paddington**, a woman in one train witnesses a murder occurring in another passing one…and only Miss Marple believes her story.**

For an instant the two trains ran side by side. In that frozen moment, Elspeth McGillicuddy stared helplessly out of her carriage window as a man tightened his grip around a woman's throat. The body crumpled. Then the other train drew away. But who, apart from Mrs. McGillicuddy's friend Jane Marple, would take her story seriously? After all, there are no other witnesses, no suspects, and no case -- for there is no corpse, and no one is missing.

Miss Marple asks her highly efficient and intelligent young friend Lucy Eyelesbarrow to infiltrate the Crackenthorpe family, who seem to be at the heart of the mystery, and help unmask a murderer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Miss Marple Love Agatha Christie but Miss Marple is not my favorite character. The mysteries she is involved in are so good though and as always guessing until the very end!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but not my favourite Another excellent Marple novel, but this one isn't my personal favourite. The story is decent (if not somewhat unbelievable), and the characters are okay, but that's about it. If you like Miss Marple, don't pass this one up, but there are other (better) stories out there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from loved this! so perfectly macabre Perfect opening of intrigue, great twist of the story...the only qualm I have is the way things end with the main character in regards to the love life --- but then again, much better than the film version!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I like Miss Marple... 3.5 stars When a friend of Miss Marple's, Mrs. McGillicuddy, is on a train, she looks over as another train is running parallel to hers, going the same direction, and sees a man strangling a woman. When she tells someone on the train what she saw, he doesn't believe her. When she relays the story to Miss Marple, they expect to see something in the papers about it, but there's nothing. So... what really happened on that train? Miss Marple will get to the bottom of it. Ah, I do like Miss Marple! Although I've not read a lot of Agatha Christie, of what I have read, I prefer Miss Marple to Poirot every time, and this is no exception. I listened to the audio of this one, and thought the narrator was very good. An older, British lady – it fit perfectly.
