Summary
A handful of grain is found in the pocket of a murdered businessman! Rex Fortescue, king of a financial empire, was sipping tea in his 'counting house' when he suffered an agonising and sudden death. On later inspection, the pockets of the deceased were found to contain traces of cereals. Yet, it was the incident in the parlour which confirmed Jane Marple's suspicion that here she was looking at a case of crime by rhyme!

Summary
The agonizing death of a wealthy financier raises many questions for Inspector Neele, whose investigation almost overlooks the bizarre clue of grain found in the man's suit pocket. When two other members of the household are killed, Miss Marple uncovers the pattern, which follows the plot of a children's poem. But the killer's motive is still to be found. Christie is at her chilling best in this superbly told tale of death by nursery rhyme
