The first Tommy and Tuppence mystery, including an all-new introduction by Agatha Christie expert John Curran.
Tommy and Tuppence, two people flat broke and out of work, are restless for excitement. They embark on a daring business scheme - Young Adventurers Ltd. - "willing to do anything, go anywhere." But their first assignment, for the sinister Mr. Whittington, draws them into a diabolical, political conspiracy. Under the eye of the elusive, ruthless Mr. Brown, they find themselves plunged into more danger than they ever imagined.

While Tommy and Tuppence aren't as well known as Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot, in some ways I enjoy them more. Christie injects them with levity and humor that seems to be missing with her more celebrated detectives.
Hugh Fraser does a marvelous job, as always, with his narration.
