Publisher's Summary

Tommy and Tuppence Beresford are restless for adventure, so when they are asked to take over Blunt's International Detective Agency, they leap at the chance.

Their first case is a success - the triumphant recovery of a pink pearl. Other cases soon follow - a stabbing on Sunningdale golf course; cryptic messages in the personal columns of newspapers; and even a box of poisoned chocolates. But can they live up to their slogan of "Any case solved in 24 hours"?

    "Cute enough"

    Usual christie touches though some a little more ham-handed but not enough to make listening to Hugh Fraser's performance less enjoyable

    "Blunt's Brilliant Detectives"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Partners in Crime to be better than the print version?

    I enjoyed both. I think I liked the book better because I was able to picture the two actors from the BBC adaptations. But Hugh Fraser is a wonderful narrator and brought a nice, light touch to the novel.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I wasn't on the edge of my seat, but it wasn't that kind of book. It's a collection of short stories featuring the delightful Tommy and Tuppence Beresford. But each story was nicely written and solved.


    What about Hugh Fraser’s performance did you like?

    I love the way he portrayed the interplay between this charming couple. He had a nice way of capturing their playful banter.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Cocktails and crime

    "An Ingenious, Hilarious Performance & Story"
    Where does Partners in Crime rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's up there. I really can't determine where, but it is definitely one of my favorites! I love these characters and they really are my favorite of the Christie detectives.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tuppence is most definitely my favorite. She is usually very blunt and brilliant, and she really loves Tommy but won't say it often. She has some hair rained schemes sometimes, and usually outwits quite a few people.


    What does Hugh Fraser bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Hugh Fraser is one of my most favorite performers in audio books! He has such a wonderfully wide range of characters and has a great understanding of the books he reads. His portrayal of Tommy and Tuppence is spot-on to how I imagined them. Bravo!!!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh in public!


    Any additional comments?

    Brilliant, hysterical, a must-read!

    What made the experience of listening to Partners in Crime the most enjoyable?

    The excellent storyline! So many short stories with one delightful thread connecting! I do wish Mrs. Christie had done more with the Beresfords. So few in their series!

    "Love this series!"

    I love the Tommy and Tuppence books. Partners in Crime is their short story adventures as Private Inquiry agents. Picking up after Secret Adversary and followed by N or M?, the stories each chronicle a case the team is working on. Lots of dialogue, jests about fictional detectives, funny and upbeat. I think I love their marriage as it is revealed through the series. I've listened to this series three times. Great narrator!

    "Good collection of short stories"

    I bought this book because I wanted to read the Tommy & Tuppence books in order and I so enjoyed the first one. I was disappointed because this book was very different from the first one. Instead of one long intricate plot it was several short simple ones threaded together. It wasn't a bad book, just very different from the previous one in the series. If I had known that it was likely not necessary, I probably would have skipped straight to book 3. :-)
