Editorial Reviews

Charles Todd
"Agatha Christie taught me two things: that plotting mysteries was an art, and that a woman detective could be as strong a character as a male detective.A woman detective didn’t need to be a housewife sleuthing in her spare time, she could be an equal in the game."
New York Times
"Distinctly worthwhile."

Meet the Author

Agatha Christie

Agatha Christie: Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became the bestselling novelist in history. She wrote 79 crime mysteries and collections, and saw her work translated into more languages than Shakespeare.

James Warwick’s acclaimed acting career has spanned the stage, television, and movies. He is best known for playing the role of Tommy Beresford in the 1980s British television series Partners in Crime and in three films based on Agatha Christie novels.

Biography

Agatha Christie is the world's best-known mystery writer. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language, and another billion in 44 foreign languages. She is the most widely published author of all time in any language, outsold only by the Bible and Shakespeare. Her writing career spanned more than half a century, during which she wrote 79 novels and a short story collection, as well as 14 plays, one of which, The Mousetrap, is the longest running play in history. Two of the characters she created, the brilliant Belgian detective Hercule Poirot and the irrepressible and relentless Miss Marple, went on to become world famous detectives. Both have been widely dramatized in feature films and made-for-TV movies. Agatha Christie died in 1976.

    A few short Agatha mysteries all wrapped up in one.

    This book is a collection of short mysteries in which Tommy and Tuppence work their way through posing as detectives owning their own agency, as asked by Scotland Yard, to catch a mean suspect. Tommy and Tuppence are wonderful characters. They have great humor and love to pick on each other. I really enjoyed the teasing of each other. And this lovely couple act out different detectives for each case, based on what they know of the case. You really get a small glimps of how they see other detectives in the books.

    Partners In Crime

    Tommy and Tuppence have always reminded me of Nick and Nora Charles of The Thin Man movie series, and I mean that in the nicest way possible. Both couples have a wit and style that I find admirable and have a relationship that I am envious of. Now, Tommy and Tuppence are a little bit more restrained in their manner however which leads to a couple that I enjoy just as much as Nick and Nora but for different reasons. They play off each other brilliantly and make up for what the other lacks in such a seamless way that I'm not even sure they truly recognize how perfect they are together.

    As you could tell from the synopsis, this is a collection of short stories that have two common threads running through them. In the first story they are approched by an old intelligence services pal and they are quickly roped into running a fake detective agency to ferret out a spy. For the most part the stories are well written and only one or two fail to make the grade for me. There were even a couple that I would have loved to have been fleshed out and turned into full novels.

    The other thread was how they would "play act" at being famous literary detectives by trying to solve every case using the methods and sometimes madness of their fictional counterparts. It was a clever device and it kept a light tone to even the darker stories. With this collection of stories, Agatha Christie has once again proved to me why she is the biggest selling mystery author of all time

    There is Nothing Like This Book

    Tommy and Tuppence Bresford are another one of the great mystery solvers created by Agatha Christie. Tommy and Tuppence are ordered to take over a near-bankrupt detective agency which might be a drop for russian spies. They are on the lookout for clues to oncover a Boleshevik conspiracy. Tommy and Tuppence solve case after case ,just like the great Shelock Holmes and hope to find the answer to this unbelievable mystery. The ending is like no other. You will have to read to find out the ending to this shocking mystery by Agatha Christie.
