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 by riverwillow
Tommy, but mainly Tuppence, investigate a mystery surrounding one of the old ladies at Tommy's Aunt Ada's nursing home. I'm not a fan of Tommy and Tuppence, but this wasn't too terrible a read.
