5.0 out of 5 stars Way to go T&T, 20 April 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: By the Pricking of My Thumbs (Tommy & Tuppence Chronology) (Paperback)
I came accross "The Secred Adversary" in my 20's and fell for Tommy and Tuppence. They were a breath of fresh air in the serious and mysterious world of detecting. Even now, many years later their characters are delightful.

One of the refreshing things about Tommy and Tuppence is that we get to follow them through life. Unlike Miss Marple and to a certain extent Hercule Poirot, their characters follow the time line of the books. In this one, both are in their 60's. Their children are married off and live their own lives. Since "N or M" Tommy and Tuppence have been away from the world of crime (that is not counting Tommy's career within the Intelligence world).

With the stated visit to Tommy's grouchy old aunt, Ada, things that changes. Tuppence becomes obsessed with the statement of Mrs. Lancaster about "something behind the fireplace". When Tommy's aunt dies; and they clear out her stuff from the retirement home, Tuppence discovers that Mrs. Lancaster has been removed to another home by the mysterious Mrs. Jones. In addition she finds out that Mrs. Lancaster has left Tommy's aunt a picture of a house that Tuppence once saw on a train ride, and things take off and Tuppence sets out to discover the mystery behind Mrs. Lancaster's disappearance and the mysterious country home.

This book is delightful and I recommend it highly to any and all.
