Tommy and Tuppence Beresford return in Agatha Christie’s classic Postern of Fate, to investigate a deadly poisoning sixty years after the fact.
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 sixty years after their first murder, Mary Jordan's enemies are still ready to kill. . . .

Slow & vague!!!
I am a die hard Agatha Christie fan and loved the initial Tommy & Tuppence books. But the last two - Pricking of my thumbs & Postern of Fate have been really disappointing. They move very slowly, there's lots of context & elaborate conversations that have no bearing on the real plot, and they end abruptly. What really went on isn't quite clarified at the end and you don't quite understand how the mystery was solved. If you are looking for a typical Christie-style page turner, don't waste your time on these.
