Genesis of Tommy and Tuppence Fans of Agatha Christie will enjoy the introduction of the Young Adventurers to her constellation of recurring sleuths that includes the inimitable Hercule Poirot, the unassuming Miss Marple and the apple-crunching novelist Ariadne Oliver. Tommy and Tuppence, properly named Thomas Beresford and Prudence Cowley, reunite at the close of the Great War to wonder at grim employment possibilities and limited life prospects.

Agatha gets a pay raise WARNING: This is an Agatha Christie book which does NOT feature Hercule Poirot or Miss Marple. Christie purists will have nothing to do with this book! If you are a Christie purist, stop reading HERE.

A classic Agatha Christie knows how to weave a tale. This book is far better than anything written today. Tuppance and Tommy were wonderful. These two were in some plucky situations but managed to come out on top. I throughly enjoyed the book.
