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.”

    I  love Tommy  and Tuppence!!! I  have  30 Agatha Christie novel

    I  love Tommy  and Tuppence!!! I  have  30 Agatha Christie novels, one  biography  and over  50 short stories. I  got and read  the  Secret Adversary  and I  loved it. Before I found Agatha Christie I  was not a reader at all and I could not see why my Boy Friend would spend hours reading.. Then  he made me  get  The Secret Adversary and I have  not looked back.  Recently I  bought the four remaining Tommy and Tuppence novels and I just love them! Now to Partners in Crime is a really great read. Don't let  people fool you into  thinking that it is just short stories.  They get the directive  agency  and do different cases  all why trying to figure out who the  mysterious number 13 is.  What I'm trying to say is they may be short stories but they're all connected in a bigger plot. If  you love Tommy and  Tuppence as much has I do  then I strongly  recommend  that  you read the five novels in order. You  don't have to but it's just better if you do. The  one after  this one  is N or M  and it is hands down  my  favorite!  Just so  you know  the order of  them  from  first  to  last is: 1, The secret adversary  2,  Partners in Crime. 3,   N or M   4,   By The Pricking  of my Thumbs   5,    Postern  Of Fate..... Happy reading and  thank you Agatha Christie for all the  sleepless nights reading a  good who-done-it!!!!

    Another Agatha Christie hit!

    Agatha Christie's intelligence agents debut in Partners in Crime. The crimes are both major and minor, but Tommy and Tuppence are always on the job. Set in the 1920's, they are a delightful anytime. Highly Recommended!

    Disappointing

    I'm a huge Christie fan, and I really like Tommy & Tuppence, but this book was a real disappointment. This book is a series of short stories, and if I had realized that at the oustset, I wouldn't have bothered since I'm not a big fan of Christie's books that are collections of short stories. But since I paid for it, I read it. Tommy and Tuppence get set up in a detective agency under pretty ridiculous circumstances. Then they proceed to use methods of famous literary detectives to solve mostly uninteresting mysteries. Even if you're a Christie fan, I would skip this unless you are a real diehard fan of Tommy & Tuppence. This is probably the worst Agatha Christie book I've read.
