The fifth and final book of the Tommy & Tuppence series. Now in their 70s, Tommy and Tuppence Beresford are just settling into their new home in a resort town when they come across a collection of children's books hidden away by a previous owner. One of the books bears the message, "Mary Jordan did not die naturally". As the Beresfords dig deeper, someone in the town is determined to keep Mary's mysterious death a secret forever.

This was Agatha Christie's final novel to write, though not the last to be published.

While I enjoy the Tommy and Tuppence characters very much and the setting of this book was fascinating, this book is of a considerably lower quality. Learning that this was her last novel to write made it poignantly obvious why the quality was so low comparabled to her earlier works. Still, as a wrap up to the Beresford series, it was an interesting read--especially following the adventures of two elderly detectives.
