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…

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

Book Description:

While visiting Tommy's Aunt Ada at Sunny Ridge nursing home, Tuppence encounters some odd residents including Mrs Lancaster who mystifies her with talk about 'your poor child' and 'something behind the fireplace'. When Aunt Ada dies a few weeks later she leaves Tommy and Tuppence a painting. Tuppence is sure she has seen the house in it before, a recognition that takes her on a dangerous adventure involving a missing tombstone, diamond smuggling and a horrible discovery of what Mrs Lancaster was talking about.
