Miss Marple senses danger when she visits a friend living in a Victorian mansion which doubles as a rehabilitation centre for delinquents. Her fears are confirmed when a youth fires a revolver at the administrator, Lewis Serrocold. Neither is injured. But a mysterious visitor, Mr Gulbrandsen, is less fortunate - shot dead simultaneously in another part of the building.
Pure coincidence? Miss Marple thinks not, and vows to discover the real reason for Mr. Gulbrandsen's visit.
Inspector Slack: God, I hate these cases. You know, I don't know why, I keep thinking of that old busybody from St. Mary Mead - she'd fit in with this lot - she's as barmy as they are. At least she knows what makes these people tick.
Miss Marple: (entering) Good morning, Chief Inspector.
Sergeant Lake: Ohh!! Miss Marple!!
Miss Marple: Oh, how nice to see you - tell me, how is your family?
Sergeant Lake: Oh, we've grown since we saw you last. We've had a little girl, and now we've just had a tiny little boy. We've called him Adam.
Miss Marple: Oh! How wonderful! Three children -oh! that's lovely. And Adam's an excellent name, I always think - oh, there you are, Chief Inspector.
Inspector Slack:(grimly) Good morning, Miss Marple.
