A Murder is Announced by Agatha Christie
Harper Collins 1953

In the village of Chipping Cleghorn, the local newspaper startles its inhabitants with an announcement of the exact date, time, and location of a murder. The murder occurs on time, every clue is presented to us, but as ever, only the ingenuity which is the hallmark of a Christie novel, makes the solution perfectly obvious once revealed but utterly baffling up until that moment.
Agatha Christie was born in Devon.
