Two young adventurers for hire. Willing to do anything, go anywhere. Pay must be good. No unreasonable offer refused. Tommy Beresford and Prudence “Tuppence” Cowley are young, in love … and flat broke. Restless for excitement and facing a shortage of job opportunities in postwar London, 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 leads them into a series of increasingly dangerous situations involving international spies, a society beauty, a Russian count, the wreck of the RMS Lusitania, an amnesia patient, an American millionaire, and a fiendishly clever archcriminal known only as “Mr. Brown.” Dame Agatha Christie’s second novel is the first in a series that spanned her career as a writer, and she has said that the Tommy and Tuppence mysteries were the stories she enjoyed writing the most. With a special, dramatized reading by Gabrielle de Cuir and Paul Boehmer, and featuring Stefan Rudnicki as “Carter,” you will soon see why!

Two young adventurers for hire. Willing to do anything, go anywhere. Pay must be good. No unreasonable offer refused.

Tommy Beresford and Prudence “Tuppence” Cowley are young, in love … and flat broke. Restless for excitement and facing a shortage of job opportunities in postwar London, 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 leads them into a series of increasingly dangerous situations involving international spies, a society beauty, a Russian count, the wreck of the RMS Lusitania, an amnesia patient, an American millionaire, and a fiendishly clever archcriminal known only as “Mr. Brown.”

Dame Agatha Christie’s second novel is the first in a series that spanned her career as a writer, and she has said that the Tommy and Tuppence mysteries were the stories she enjoyed writing the most.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Refreshingly original.” Times Literary Supplement (London)
“An excellent yarn…Reader[s] will find it as impossible as we did to put it aside until the mystery has been fathomed.” Daily Chronicle (London)
“An exciting story of adventure, full of hairbreadth escapes, and many disappointments if [readers] try to guess the riddle before the author is ready to give them the clue…An excellent story.” Saturday Review
