Library Journal
Middle-aged Tommy and Tuppence Beresford, too old to fight and too young to knit, are dismayed to find out that the British government of World War II has little interest in their detecting and spy-catching abilities. Then, almost incidentally, they are asked to spot a traitor, believed to be living at a rural guesthouse. But the place is full of harmless eccentrics: elderly ladies, retired military men, a hypochondriac and his colorless wife, a young mother, and a German refugee. The Beresfords invent personalities and elaborate traps, identify the imposter, and prevent an invasion. The strengths of this Christie "cozy" are the exuberant charm, intelligence, and enthusiasms of the central characters. Middle-aged they may be, but inside Tommy and Tuppence are still the same young adventurers who chased criminals and spies in post-Great War London. James Warwick does a highly competent, nicely unobtrusive job of reading this title, which is likely to be popular with fans of golden age mysteries. Recommended for moderate to large public libraries. I. Pour-El, Des Moines Area Community Coll., Boone, IA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

As always, Agatha Christie brings to light the evils present in human nature in a plot filled with quirky characters and plenty of wit. This is one of my favorites.

I enjoyed this book because it was simple to follow. Yet, for most of the story, there was not a whole lot of action or suspense. I was expecting some of the main characters to be killed off, but nothing like that happened. The plot itself seemed a little hard to believe. The ending was quite cleverly done, but there was a whole lot of waiting to get there. This book did help me understand better the feelings of people at that time during the war. Many people were afraid of spies or invasions by Germany. There was racism and irrational ideas toward Germans. People often misjudge others simply because there is a war going on. The distinction between who the real enemies are and those who are simply part of a country becomes blurred. I would not say this book was as good as The Mousetrap or And Then There Were None, simply because it took too long to develop. I would not recommend this book if the reader is looking for thrills and suspense. However, it is an easy book to follow and can be very entertaining at times.
