When the vicar in Miss Marple's village declares in exasperation that anyone who murdered Colonel Prothero would be doing the world a service, he does not realise his words will come back to haunt him. The Colonel's death at the vicarage throws up a long list of potential murderers. The unpopular local resident made many enemies. Miss Marple, temporarily incapacitated after an accident, is perfectly placed to investigate.
