Book Description

With jobs thin on the ground Tommy and Tuppence decide to form a partnership and hire themselves out as ‘young adventurers, willing to do anything, go anywhere’. When their first assignment, for the sinister Mr Whittington, puts both of them in mortal danger, they have to use all their ingenuity and cunning to save not only their own lives but that of the mysterious ‘Jane Finn’. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

Tommy and Tuppence, two young people short of money and restless for excitement, embark on a daring business scheme – Young Adventurers Ltd.

Their advertisement says they are 'willing to do anything, go anywhere'. But their first assignment, for the sinister Mr Whittington, plunges them into more danger than they ever imagined…

Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. She wrote 79 crime mysteries and collections, and saw her work translated into more languages than Shakespeare. Her enduring success, enhanced by many film and TV adaptations, is a tribute to the timeless appeal of her characters and the unequalled ingenuity of her plots.

AN APPEALING COCKTAIL OF COMEDY AND ADVENTURE FEATURING THE WORLD'S MOST UNLIKELY DETECTIVES

She is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and another billion in over 100 foreign countries. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 19 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott.
