Summary
"The body of Rex Fortescue, the patriarch of a loathsome family of financiers, is discovered with a handful of rye in his pocket. Soon afterward, his young wife, Adele, dies following a light tea with bread and honey. As the clues grow more and more bizarre, only the murderer and Miss Marple seem able to recall their nursery rhymes"--Container
