By the Pricking of My Thumbs
This BOOK is dedicated to the many readers in this and other countries who write to me asking: "What has happened to Tommy and Tuppence? What are they doing now?"
My best wishes to you all, and I hope that you will enjoy meeting Tommy and Tuppence again, years older, but with spirit unquenched!

Plot

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 fire place', Tommy and Tuppence found themselves caught up in an unexpected adventure...
