BY THE PRICKING OF MY THUMBS

by | Read by Samantha Bond

Mystery & Suspense • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1968

Macbeth’s witches uttered the words used in this book’s title, and well-chosen they were. The popular detective duo Tommy and Tuppence Beresford reappear after a thirty-year hiatus, still sleuthing in their golden years A visit to Tommy’s aged Aunt Ada in a nursing home leads to a convoluted tale involving a mysterious painting, a missing tombstone, and the apparent kidnapping of Tuppence. Classic mystery elements--hidden documents and “nice” people with shadowy pasts--pop up unexpectedly as the Beresfords bravely pursue the truth. Excellent acting by Samantha Bond rounds out the listen. Bond effortlessly brings the characters to life with seamless voice work. D.J.B. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 03]
