3.0 out of 5 stars The first Tommy and Tuppence story, 26 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Secret Adversary (Tommy & Tuppence) (Kindle Edition)
Tommy and Tuppence are two delightful characters but I found this book didn't hold my attention at all. It is basically a spy story rather than a crime novel in which Tommy and Tuppence are employed to try and track down some important papers which were handed over to a girl called Jane Finn just before the Lusitania sank.

I found the first few chapters amusing but felt the rest of the book was not nearly as good. There are all the standard ingredients - people who seem to know more than they are telling and secret agents following people around and despatching them when necessary not to speak of the sinister looking foreign characters with strange scars and short hair cuts.

I'm sure the book is very much of its time but if it hadn't been for the resourcefulness and unfailing cheerfulness of the two main characters I probably wouldn't have persevered to the end. Others may like it but I'm afraid it wasn't my sort of book.
