A notice appears in the paper of a small English village, Chipping Cleghorn: "A murder is announced and will take place on Friday, October 29th, at Little Paddocks, at 6:30 p.m. Friends accept this, the only intimation." This comes as a surprise to Letitia Blacklock, owner of Little Paddocks, as she has no idea what the notice means; she didn't place it, and none of her companions knows more than she. Miss Blacklock decides to take it in stride and prepares to have guests that evening. The villagers are intrigued by the notice, and several of them appear with awkward reasons but definite interest. As the clock strikes 6:30, the lights go out and a door swings open, revealing a man with a blinding torch.
