|Plot Summary of Murder with Mirrors|
Carrie Louise Serracold is not in touch with reality. She doesn't realize her life is endangered by arsenic in her tonic, poisoned chocolates, and a murderer in the family. That's in addition to running a school in her home rehabilitating juvenile delinquents! Lucky for Carrie Louise, her sister Ruth Van Rydock sends lifelong friend Jane Marple to keep an eye on things. Although Miss Marple tries to warn her, Carrie Louise refuses to believe her granddaughter is having an affair, that her ward Edgar is schizophrenic, or even that someone is trying to kill her! Elderly Miss Marple must determine who wants Carrie Louise dead, before it's too late!
