Book Description

9 Feb 2010 Tommy and Tuppence Mysteries

The second audiobook in the Tommy & Tuppence series.

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…

More About the Author

Born in Torquay in 1890, Agatha Christie began writing during the First World War and wrote over 100 novels, plays and short story collections. She was still writing to great acclaim until her death, and her books have now sold over a billion copies in English and another billion in over 100 foreign languages. Yet Agatha Christie was always a very private person, and though Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple became household names, the Queen of Crime was a complete enigma to all but her closest friends.

‘N or M?'

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 two highly-placed traitors, a man and a woman from among the colourful guests at Sans Souci, a prim seaside boarding house. But this assignment is no stroll along the promenade. After all, N and M have just murdered Britain's finest agent…

4.0 out of 5 stars Tommy and Tuppence unmask a spy (again) 26 Jun 2001
Format:Paperback
N or M? is almost a direct link on from 'The Secret Adversary', except in the Second, rather than the First World War. No matter - the setting is perfect and the characters drawn in wonderful Christie style. Also, unlike the later two novels (By the Pricking of my Thumbs and Postern of Fate), there is actually a mystery to solve and enough clues to get it. The mix of mystery and adventure is well done and the plot a good one. Reccommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best "Tommy and Tuppence" 31 Oct 2010
Format:Paperback
One of 5 books featuring Tommy and Tuppence Beresford, an amateur but quasi official detective duo, this is, in my opinion, by far the best. All 5 are interesting in terms of the characters themselves, who worm their way into the reader's affections, but they vary greatly in terms of quality as mystery novels. This one is well plotted with many twists and turns and is a real page turner.

I finished it today, and it's the last of the 5 in terms of the order I read them in (I read them in a random order). My ranking as far as quality is as follows: N or M?, The Secret Adversary, By The Pricking of My Thumbs, Postern of Fate, and Partners in Crime. Chronological order is as follows: The Secret Adversary, Partners in Crime, N or M?, By The Pricking of My Thumbs, Postern of Fate.

All 5 books are very different, and by no means formulaic. The differences in style may be because they were each written many years apart, spanning several decades, long enough for the author's writing style to have gone through many changes; or it may be deliberate, reflecting the main characters' own journey through life and marriage. Either way, it keeps things fresh. They are all worth reading. Perhaps the most different is the second one, Partners in Crime, which is largely episodic and reads almost like a collection of short stories, linked by a fine strand.

Returning to N or M?, I can't say too much about it without revealing the plot, but there is an added layer of interest to modern readers since it was both written and set during World War II. This is no period piece, but the genuine article, written perhaps to provide light relief during a time of great trouble but very much entrenched in the horrors of the time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tommy and Tuppence rock 4 April 2006
By humanitysdarkerside VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Ever since reading "The Secret Adversary" I've been a fan of Tommy and Tuppence. They bring humor and sillyness into the world of mystery and suspense.
In N or M we see this again. Tuppence refuses to be placed into any sort of stereotypical feminine role, but does so in a manner that that delights me as a reader. Tommy is with her all the way. Like he says: "from the first we were a joint venture". When he encounters her at Sans Souci (the suspected headquarters of the fifth column), he is delighted and awed. When his boss discovers that they were both tricked he laughed.
It turns out (of course) that it is a good thing that Tuppence is there. Without each other they would not have been able to solve the mystery. There are no clear suspects. Like all Agatha Christie books (and perhaps all others of her genre) first one then another person is suspected of being the culprit. The ending is not surprising but unexpected nevertheless.
This was a terrible time in Europe. Things were black and white and the propaganda at that time in GB was very anti-German, understandably so. In many ways this book shows how group mentality can work and how our attitudes are affected by what is shoved in our faces every day - elementary psychology.
I guess this one thing I really like about Christie's books. She shows how people are and how they think. The culprit is generally just any old person living a normal life, but who then manages to encounter extraordinary circumstances. Sure, there are mass murderers and crazy people in her books as well, but in general the culprit might just as well have been my neighbor.
Enjoy! I certainly did.

3.0 out of 5 stars N or M ? 17 Jun 2011
By Rich
Format:Paperback
Tommy and Tuppence go undercover in a seaside resort to discover the identity of a Nazi agent

Just fair really. It moves along nicely. Perhaps too nicely. I never got the feeling that anyone was in any danger despite some murderous goings on. The seaside setting doesn't really conjure up an atmosphere of suspense or menace. Perhaps I'm being a bit harsh, considering this was published while the war was going on. This is more like a Literary sorbet. Not the best Tommy and Tuppence novel but certainly not the worst.

5.0 out of 5 stars Time for a re-evaluation 4 Jan 2002
By Nick Hay VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
The Tommy and Tuppence novels are often neglected. This, the best of them, makes a compelling case for why they should not be. It also presents an Agatha Christie who responds very directly to her time and era, and leaves us in a valuable social record. If you want to feel the nature of the British middle-class fear/hysteria/paranoia about traitors in 1940 (by August 1940 1600 British citizens had been imprisoned without trial on suspicion of Fascist symapthies) read this book. Consider what Agatha Christie is prepared to suspect of some of the very authority figures which her pre (and post) war books usually so revered.
Anyone who thinks Christie just writes clever puzzles (though of course there is a fairly clever puzzle here) should read this book.
