"As ingenious as ever." (Guardian)
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.
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

intrigues mind boggling exciting and challenging. Me Carter initially excluded Tuppence but he didn't count on how desperate she was can they find November or M in time?????
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'
loved it, the "poor old things" proving they are not passed it! wonderful ending ,thanks
