A Murder is Announced by Agatha Christie begins with the newspaper in Chipping Cleghorn, The Gazette, printing a story about a murder. The odd thing is that the murder has yet to take place.

Like many Agatha Christie mysteries I've read, the twist isn't so much who committed the crime, as why the crime was committed. Reading this makes me want to pick up many more Agatha Christie mysteries.4/5.
