9780007212620: Secret Adversary

After World War I, Tommy Beresford and Prudence "Tuppence" Cowley find themselves out of work and out of money. Only half seriously, they form "The Young Adventurers, Ltd." planning to hire themselves out as "adventurers ... willing to do anything, go anywhere ... no unreasonable offer refused." At least as long as the price was right! Tommy and Tuppence get much more than they bargain for when the become entangled in a web of intrigue, strange people, and British intelligence agencies! The first of Christie's Tommy and Tuppence novels, The Secret Adversary is a wild whirl of adventure, ingenuity, and mystery.

From the Back Cover:

Now the Major TV Series Partners in Crime

From the brilliant pen of Agatha Christie comes the first novel in her Tommy and Tuppence mystery series featuring the beloved sleuthing duo.

Tommy and Tuppence are young, in love . . . and flat broke. Restless for excitement, they decide to embark on a daring business scheme:  Young Adventurers Ltd.—“willing to do anything, go anywhere.” But they get more than they bargained for when their first assignment for the sinister Mr. Whittington draws them into a diabolical conspiracy.

It isn’t long before they find themselves plunged into more danger than they ever could have imagined—a danger that could put an abrupt end to their business . . . and their lives.

“Agatha Christie proves that if you really are good enough, you can break all the ‘rules’ and still come up with a winner.” —Anne Perry, New York Times bestselling author of the Thomas Pitt and William Monk series of Victorian mysteries
