Dated but fun
September 29th, 2015
Dated and a bit hackneyed in terms of language and plot devices... But a page-turner nonetheless. Worth a quick read.

Dame Agatha never fails to entertain!
September 25th, 2015
But it shows this book is one of her first books... There where two possibilities that could be the "bad" guy, but one so obvious that could only be the other. So I knew he was by the middle of the book. Even so, a good read!

Very fun little mystery! I hope there are more Tuppence mysteries for me to discover; she and Tommy are such engaging characters.

I thought I knew who did it half way through but I should know by now that I can never win Ms Christie's game. Am exciting mystery with many twists, introducing the intrepid Young Adventures - Tommy and Tuppence

The Secret Adversary
October 19th, 2013
Another beautifully written story from Agatha Christie. The ending is discrete, leaving you with possibilities in your head, but no concern that justice was not met. The pace of the story was fast and dated to the post war-type of personality traits, so innocent in today's world, but endearing nevertheless. The final chapter leaves the possibility open for future books in this genre.
