Plot – Elderly spinster Miss Marple is on her way back from London to her village. Near a small station, a train overtakes hers and - through the window pane – she sees a man strangling a girl. Once at her destination, she immediately goes to the police to report what she has seen, but she is not believed. Only the librarian of the small village believes her story. The two then decide to shed some light on the question. Disguised as toll collectors, they inspect a long section of the railway and they find a trail that leads them to the Ackenthorpe villa.
