4:50 from Paddington or What Mrs McGillicuddy Saw : Written by Agatha Christie and Published in 1957. 4:50 from Paddington tells the tale of Mrs McGillicuddy who is travelling in a train to see her friend Jane Marple. On her way she sees a woman being murdered in a crossing parallel train. The Problem is that she could not identify either the murderer or the victim and the police are unable to locate the dead woman's body on the train. The Police think of this incident as hallucinations of an old women and curb any further inquiries. Mrs McGillicuddy narrates this incident to Miss Marple, who hatches up a scheme to nab the killer.
A very interesting premise, the book starts off with a crime which looks unsolvable but Miss Marple along with Lucy Eyelesbarrow who serves as a Proxy for Marple helps to solve the crime. Lucy Eyelesbarrow turns out to be a very interesting character and it's a shame that she was never reused in any story but all the same this is a really good mystery which starts off nicely but slacks in the middle, it's a lot like "The Body in the Library"
