'Required reading.' Books 'Distinctly worthwhile.' New York Times 'Sherlock Holmes, John Thorndyke, Father Brown and even Poirot are amiably parodied, and once or twice the solution as well as the dialogue is deliberately facetious.' Times Literary Supplement

PARTNERS IN CRIME

Tommy and Tuppence Beresford were restless for adventure, so when they were asked to take over Blunt’s International Detective Agency, they leapt at the chance.

After their triumphant recovery of a pink pearl, intriguing cases kept on coming their way: a stabbing on Sunningdale golf course; cryptic messages in the personal columns of the newspapers; and even a box of poisoned chocolates.

'Agatha Christie' was born in Torquay 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. She wrote 79 crime mysteries and collections, and saw her work translated into more languages than Shakespeare. Her enduring success, enhanced by many film and TV adaptations, is attribute to the timeless appeal of her characters and the unequalled ingenuity of her plots.

A DELICIOUS PARODY OF A DOZEN FICTIONAL SLEUTHS, FROM SHERLOCK HOLMES TO CHRISTIE’S OWN HERCULE POIROT.
