Well worth reading The Secret Adversary introduces Agatha Christie’s characters of Tommy and Tuppence, an out of work young man and woman who decide to become “adventurers” out of a lack of anything better to do. They quite accidentally get sucked into an international mystery that reaches to the highest levels of British government.

A Serendipitous Read I have not been a big fan of the Tommy and Tuppence episodes on PBS’ Agatha Christie series; however, this is a surprisingly well-written thriller even for Agatha Christie. The plot is convoluted, in a nice way, and the dialogue believable. I missed the mark completely in identifying the villain. Tommy and Tuppence are a nice break from Miss Marple and M. Poirot, and I recommend the book for anyone who enjoys Agatha Christie’s style.

Crime before technology I’ve recently become addicted to crime shows and books. In the age of “24” and CSI and all these hyper-tech worlds, there’s a novelty in going back to the 1920s when people left telegrams and couldn’t track the bad guy on satellite-powered traffic cameras.This version for Kindle doesn’t have an active table of contents. However, I just make a bookmark at the beginning of each chapter, so I don’t see what the big deal is. Thanks whoever made it available to us for free!
