The Secret Adversary is a work of detective fiction by Agatha Christie. The book introduces the characters of Tommy and Tuppence who feature in three other Christie novels and one collection of short stories. Set in 1919, young couple Tommy Beresford and Tuppence Cowley form a partnership, hiring themselves out as ”young adventurers”. Their first case, however, turns out to be more of an adventure than they expected, working to find documents that, if known to the general public, would fuel a communist revolution in Britain.

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.

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.

Enjoyable mystery and characters I am not into mysteries or Agatha Christie. . but enjoyed this book. Good clean reading and felt like I was right there with each character in their dilemma. Good ending. Also, this is a good start-up book for someone wanting to begin reading mysteries, especially this author, who has written 100+.. of which my daughter has read all of them and has reread many for the second and third time. Recommend
