Includes a detailed biographical note and a brief history of the Lusitania.
The Secret Adversary introduces Tommy Beresford and Tuppence Cowley, two young sleuths who, jobless and restless after the end of World War I, set up the Young Adventurers Ltd and advertise themselves as “willing to do anything. Go anywhere…no reasonable offer refused.” They were the characters Christie most enjoyed writing about and the only characters in the Christie canon to age and live their lives in real time.
Agatha Christie is the “Queen of Mystery” and the world’s best-selling mystery writer. Over the course of more than half a century she wrote eighty crime novels and short story collections, nineteen plays, and several poetry collections. Her books have sold more than a billion copies in the English language and another billion in a hundred other languages. Agatha Christie died in 1976.
“An excellent yarn and the reader will find it as impossible as we did to put it aside until the mystery has been fathomed.”
