Pubblicato in Italia con il titolo Sento i pollici che prudono. Una nuova avventura per Tommy and Tuppence che parte da uno strano incontro con un’anziana donna e il quadro di una casa. Dove ha già visto quella casa Tuppence?

Tuppence’s curiosity once again lands her into trouble in the fourth book of the Tommy and Tuppence series by Agatha Christie. Tommy and Tuppence are now middle-aged. A visit to Tommy’s aunt’s nursing home leads to a new adventure for the couple of investigators as Tuppence is intrigued by a chat with an elderly woman and the painting of a house that she’s convinced to have already seen somewhere. And while Tommy is away at a conference about spies, Tuppence decides to take a little trip and satisfy her curiosity about the painting. But her adventure turns dangerous as she becomes involved in missing tombstones and smuggling diamonds.

Once again, Agatha Christie created an intricate and intriguing plot that kept me completely engrossed. Despite the dangers and the suspense, this was a fun and engaging read and I love how Tommy and Tuppence’s passion for adventure doesn’t fade!
