9780006165705: By the Pricking of My Thumbs

As the story opens, sleuth team Tommy and Tuppence Beresford make a dutiful visit to Tommy's Aunt Ada at a nursing home. Ada dies there peacefully soon after, but when her cohort Mrs. Lancaster vanishes, Tuppence grows suspicious. Her intuition proves correct.

From the Publisher:

Narrator Information: Alex Jennings enjoyed a highly-successful run at the Old Vic in Too Clever By Half for which he won an Olivier Award, the Drama Magazine Award, and the Plays and Players Award for Actor of the Year. He has also won the Olivier Award for Best Actor in the Royal Shakespeare Company's production of Peer Gynt. Among his numerous television credits are Inspector Alleyn, Hard Times and the lead role in Bad Blood.

From the Back Cover:

When Tommy and Tuppence visit an elderly aunt in her gothic nursing home, they think nothing of her mistrust of the doctors; after all, Ada is a very difficult old lady.

But when Mrs. Lockett mentions a poisoned mushroom stew and Mrs. Lancaster talks about "something behind the fireplace," Tommy and Tuppence find themselves caught up in a spine-chilling adventure that could spell death for either of them . . .
