9780007111497: By the Pricking of My Thumbs (Tommy & Tuppence Chronology)

An old woman in a nursing home speaks of a child buried behind the fireplace...

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

But when Mrs Lockett mentioned a poisoned mushroom stew and Mrs Lancaster talked about ‘something behind the fireplace’, Tommy and Tuppence found themselves caught up in an unexpected adventure involving possible black magic...

Product Description:

By the Pricking of My Thumbs

Review:

‘The most macabre and eerie Christie I have read for a long time.’
Sunday Express

‘All beautifully plotted in the way that Mrs Christie is famous for. The title is from Macbeth: “By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes.” Wicked indeed!’
Best Sellers

‘Ladies disappearing from homes of rest, sinister empty houses, hints of gang-leaders mixed with black magic – mystery at the usual high Christie level.’
Evening Standard

‘Devised with fiendish ingenuity in the classic Christie cast.’
Illustrated London News
