International spies, two world wars, murders, thefts, and not to mention marriage, Tommy and Tuppence seek out excitement wherever it may lie. Tuppence leads the way with her charismatic nature, while Tommy’s slow, considered manner provides the perfect foil. Together they form the Young Adventurers, Ltd., and the adventures begin.

Tommy and Tuppence Beresford, Christie’s delightful sleuthing duo, investigate the strange and troubling doings behind the scenes at a gothic British nursing home in By the Pricking of My Thumbs.

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 an unexpected adventure that could spell death for either of them.
