By the Pricking of my Thumbs

By the Pricking of My ThumbsBy the Pricking of My Thumbs
by Agatha Christie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There is a bit of a Nick &Nora Charles feel to the main characters in this book, though they drink much less and Tuppence is more independent than Nora. A very casual comment from a lady in a nursing home leads the pair--separately for much of the book--into a complex plot of robbery and murder. Well crafted with lots of red herrings to keep the reader off track.
I am rereading Something Wicked This Way Comes for a read-along and when I saw this title on the library shelf it seemed like I needed to read it too.
