KIRKUS REVIEW

One short (Agatha Christie in The Tape Measure Murder); two long-shorts (Philip Wylie's Stab in the Back and Hugh Penteocost's The Dead Man's Tale), and one novelette (Ethel myle's Murder Buys a Bug) -- all themed on the lack of money, the love of money, the need of money. The familiar Miss Marple, an air raid warden, a chemical plant's founder, and a lawyer and his wife are on the spot sleuthe for the deaths. Bank this as an extra dividend for the mortuary section.
