Some secret plans have survived the sinking of the Lusitania, and amateur sleuths Tommy and Tuppence are on the trail of international spies in order to recover them.
‘Young Adventurers Limited' is a brand new private detective agency, set up by the dashing Tommy Beresford and the resourceful Tuppence Cowley. Their first assignment is to track down some secret documents which disappeared after the sinking of the Lusitania. Soon they are on the trail of the mysterious Mr Brown, the head of an international gang of crooks - and in more danger than they bargained for!
The wartime sinking of the Lusitania off the Irish coast in May 1915 shocked the world. Returning to Britain from New York, the cruise ship was torpedoed by a German submarine, and 1,198 passengers lost their lives. It provided the perfect backdrop for Agatha Christie's second published novel, an ambitious spy story, now faithfully adapted by François Rivière and Belgian artist Frank Leclercq.
Famed for her crime masterpieces, Agatha Christie’s books have become the best-selling in the world, appealing to readers young and old for their ingenious plots and immediately recognizable characters. The stories have also transcended the printed page, become bestselling audiobooks and award-winning films, plays and television series. Now words and pictures combine in an exciting new way of telling these stories – full-colour graphic novels which enhance the original stories and offer a completely new way of enjoying some of the world’s most popular and exciting mysteries.
