Publisher's Summary

Tommy and Tuppence are at it again. This detective couple can never walk away from a mystery and these two later novels are no exception.
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 a spine-chilling adventure that could spell death for either of them...
Postern of Fate: 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: "Mary Jordan did not die naturally." And 60 years after their first murder, Mary Jordan's enemies are still ready to kill....
Don’t miss out on the rest of the daring couple’s adventures and other Agatha Christie mysteries!

Last two books of the Tommy and Tuppence series.

Would you consider the audio edition of By the Pricking of My Thumbs & Postern of Fate to be better than the print version?

Absolutely! It is well read by Hugh Fraser which made it highly enjoyable to listen to.

What about Hugh Fraser’s performance did you like?

He reads quite well.

Any additional comments?

By the Pricking of my Thumbs is my least fave Agatha Christie novels as I did not like the story line but do enjoy the Tommy and Tuppence characters and Hugh Fraser's voice made it worth listening to. Postern of Fate is the last Tommy and Tuppence story and takes place when the characters are retired.
