Publisher's Summary

It is World War II, and while the RAF struggles to keep the Luftwaffe at bay, Britain faces an even more sinister threat from "the enemy within": Nazis posing as ordinary citizens.

With pressure mounting, the Intelligence service appoints two unlikely spies, Tommy and Tuppence Beresford. Their mission: to seek out a man and a woman from among the colourful guests at Sans Souci, a seaside hotel. But this assignment is no stroll along the promenade. After all, N and M have just murdered Britain's finest agent.

Entertaining yarn

This is definitely not one of her best plot lines. It is very much a dubious and implausible spy story.
But Hugh Fraser is a great narrator and its well worth listening to.

Lively tale, excellently read

This is one of the 'Partners in Crime' stories involving a sleuthing couple formerly employed by the British Secret Service during the First World War and here re-recruited to help flush out a Fifth Column conspiracy during the Second World War. It's an engaging story with twists and turns and a surprising denouement. As usual, Hugh Fraser does sterling service as the reader cleverly changing the pitch and accent of his voice to convince as young or old, male or female, Irish, English or German. Thoroughly enjoyable

Not the best Christie but good

This is not the best Christie I have "read" but, is still a good story. Hugh Frasier's narration is perfect as usual. I especially love his characterisation of a two year old girl. Best thing I've heard since 'Mrs McGintys Dead'

N or M? Christie at her best!

What made the experience of listening to N or M? the most enjoyable?

One of the best thing about the Christie audio books is that Hugh Fraser is the narrator, his performance really takes you to the moment

What was one of the most memorable moments of N or M??

The final realization of who the baddy is.

What about Hugh Fraser’s performance did you like?

The crisp English accent from the period of the book. Splendid

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The Germans are coming? No they are already here!
