    "A wonderful listen with marvelous characters"
    Where does The Secret Adversary rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.

    "Thought I'd figured it out early on; however . . ."

    This was my second T&T read - what fun. I enjoy Hugh Fraser's narrations.
    Thanks.
