I just finished reading Agatha Christie’s The Secret Adversary, the first Tommy and Tuppence story. It’s been many years since I read it last. I had forgotten the layers upon layers of adventure and misdirection. It is classic Agatha Christie, with fun and memorable characters. Definitely worth a read.

“Never tell all you know—not even to the person you know best.”

Agatha Christie, The Secret Adversary

Tommy and Tuppence, two young people short of money and restless for excitement, embark on a daring business scheme – Young Adventurers Ltd.

Their advertisement says they are ‘willing to do anything, go anywhere’. But their first assignment, for the sinister Mr Whittington, plunges them into more danger than they ever imagined.
