The Secret Adversary (Paperback)
From the brilliant pen of Agatha Christie comes the first novel in her Tommy and Tuppence mystery series featuring the beloved sleuthing duo--now a movie on both Acorn TV and PBS.
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.
“Any mystery writer who wants to learn how to plot should spend a few days reading Agatha Christie. She’ll show you everything you want to know.”
-Donna Leon, international bestselling author of the Commissario Guido Brunetti novels
-Times Literary Supplement (London)
