9780007212538: Partners in Crime: Complete & Unabridged

Six short stories from the Queen of Crime, featuring our favourite young detectives, Tommy and Tuppence.

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 newspapers; and even a box of poisoned chocolates.

Review:

‘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

From the Back Cover:

'And your idea is -?'
'Three hearts stands for the Three Arts Ball, tomorrow night, 12 tricks is twelve o'clock, and the Ace of Spades is the Ace of Spades.'
'And what about its being necessary to finesse the King?'
'Well, that's what I thought we'd find out,'

'Finessing The King' is one story in this entertaining collection. Each tale offers generous portions of mystery and suspense in Christie style.

• A Fairy in the Flat
• A Pot of Tea
• The Affair of the Pink Pearl
• The Adventure of the Sinister Stranger
• Finessing the King
• The Gentleman Dressed in Newspaper
