9780007111480: Postern of Fate (Tommy & Tuppence Chronology)

A poisoning many years ago may not have been accidental after all…

Tommy and Tuppence Beresford have just become the proud owners of an old house in an English village. Along with the property, they have inherited some worthless bric-a-brac, including a collection of antique books. While rustling through a copy of The Black Arrow, Tuppence comes upon a series of apparently random underlinings.

However, when she writes down the letters, they spell out a very disturbing message:
M a r y – J o r d a n – d i d – n o t – d i e – n a t u r a l l y…
And sixty years after their first murder, Mary Jordan's enemies are still ready to kill…

Review:

‘The Beresfords are wonderfully revived. Smooth, beautifully paced, and effortlessly convincing.’
New York Times

‘Past and present interlock impressively… this is a genuine tour de force.’
Observer

Book Description:

When Tommy and Tuppence Beresford move to a quiet English village, they were looking forward to a peaceful retirement. But, as they soon discovered, their rambling old house held both secrets and dangers. Who was Mary Jordan? Why had someone left a coded message in an old book saying that she 'did not die naturally'? And what was the significance of 'Oxford' and 'Cambridge'? Once more, ingenuity and insight are called for as the pair, along with Hannibal the dog, are drawn into old mysteries and new dangers.
