Publisher's Summary

Two Best-Selling Agatha Christie Novels in One Great Audiobook

The Secret Adversary

From the brilliant pen of Agatha Christie comes the first novel in her Tommy and Tuppence mystery series featuring the beloved sleuthing duo - now a movie on both Acorn TV and PBS.

Tommy and Tuppence are young, in love...and flat broke. Restless for excitement, they decide to embark on a daring business scheme: Young Adventurers Ltd. - "willing to do anything, go anywhere." But they get more than they bargained for when their first assignment for the sinister Mr. Whittington draws them into a diabolical conspiracy. 

It isn’t long before they find themselves plunged into more danger than they ever could have imagined - a danger that could put an abrupt end to their business...and their lives. 

And Then There Were None

A PBS Great American Read Top 100 Pick

One of the most famous and beloved mysteries from the queen of suspense, Agatha Christie! More than 100 million copies sold and now a Lifetime TV movie. 

Ten people, each with something to hide and something to fear, are invited to a isolated mansion on Indian Island by a host, who, surprisingly, fails to appear. On the island, they are cut off from everything but each other and the inescapable shadows of their own past lives. One by one, the guests share the darkest secrets of their wicked pasts. And one by one, they die.... Which among them is the killer, and will any of them survive?

Both are fantastic!

First time reading The Secret Adversary, and I loved it!

And Then There Were None is one of my absolute favourites. A terrifying, and brilliant thriller, I always come back to this one.

Amazing

Both books were amazing in content and narration. I didn’t want them to come to an end.

Hugh Fraser great again. Dan Stevens ok.

I wish I could give separate reviews for these two books. Hugh Fraser is a brilliant narrator and as usual does an excellent job with The Secret Adversary. What a fun book! I don’t remember finding Christie so clever and funny when I read all her books as a teenager. I’m glad I’m rereading them now. And Then There Were None is a classic and of course we almost all know the story. It is super exciting. I just found Dan Stevens’ narration basic and uninspiring. It was fine. Nothing really to complain about, but also nothing to get excited about.

Neither book is "typical" Agatha Christie

I read it as two separate books for GoodReads, so I will post the two separate reviews POSTED in GoodReads:

(as posted in review for _The Secret Adversary_ A Tommy and Tuppence Mystery_ on GoodReads)
Despite the fact that I've been raining Agatha Christie books since junior high, I had never read a Tommy And Tuppence book before. The whole feel is totally different than any of her other books that I have read! The fact that it's not a carbon copy of her previous styles is good, and the twist near the end is refreshing and intriguing. I don't know why I didn't give it four stars, but there you go…

(As posted in review for _And Then There Were None_ on GoodReads)
I read this book years ago, and I really wanted to e-read it. I have read a lot about I think Chris throughout junior high and high school, and after a while they're all kind of same – but this one is definitely not. Re-reading it was really what I needed! I had remembered a lot, but several of the details kind of escaped me; but I remembered the main points and villains and guilty parties. And I still appreciate the thought and morals that went into it. It really is one of her better books!

Another great add to my collection!

I’ve been reading Agatha Christie books since high school. I did a summer reading project on And Then There Were None in tenth grade and it was my first Agatha Christie book to read! I still have the hard copy but it’s great to listen to before bed! I love that it comes with two books for one credit!

Agatha Christie keeps my attention every time! I cannot wait to read her great stuff again!

The secret adversary is tedious

I like many AC novels, really enjoy them. This one is tedious, way too many characters and not enjoyable to read. It is early on in her writing career and it shows.
