Tommy and Tuppence Beresford are the protagonists of a series of novels and short stories by Agatha Christie, and mark the few ventures that Christie made into espionage tales rather than the whodunits she's known for. 'The Secret Adversary' introduces Tommy and Tuppence who feature in three other Christie novels and one collection of short stories; the five Tommy and Tuppence books span Agatha Christie's writing career.Thomas Beresford and Prudence "Tuppence" Cowley started out as friends in post-World War I Britain. Jobless and penniless, they place an ad in the paper marketing themselves as adventurers, leading to an encounter that starts their career as spies for an unnamed British intelligence agency.Interestingly, the dedications of two Tommy and Tuppence books ('The Secret Adversary' and 'By the Pricking of My Thumbs') are the only times Christie ever dedicated a book directly to her readers.The Tommy and Tuppence books are: 'The Secret Adversary' (1922);'Partners in Crime' (short story collection) (1929)'N or M?' (1941)'By the Pricking of My Thumbs' (1968)'Postern of Fate' (1973)Upon publication of the first book edition it was reviewed by The Times Literary Supplement in its edition of 26 January, 1922, which described it as "a whirl of thrilling adventures". The critic for The New York Times Book Review (11 June 1922) was also impressed: "It is safe to assert that unless the reader peers into the last chapter or so of the tale, he will not know who this secret adversary is until the author chooses to reveal him." The review gave something of a backhanded compliment when it said that Christie "gives a sense of plausibility to the most preposterous situations and developments."Robert Barnard described the novel as "The first and best (no extravagant compliment this) of the Tommy and Tuppence stories. It tells how the dauntless pair foils a plot to foment labour unrest and red revolution in Britain, masterminded by the man behind the Bolshevists. Good reactionary fun, if you're in that mood".Some additional blurbs regarding the book, and used by The Bodley Head for advertising subsequent print runs, are as follows: "It's an excellent yarn and the reader will find it as impossible as we did to put it aside until the mystery has been fathomed." - Daily Chronicle"We promise our readers an exciting story of adventure, full of hairbreadth escapes, and many disappointments if they try to guess the riddle before the author is ready to give them the clue. An excellent story." - Saturday Review."The atmosphere of the book is admirable and the story will be read with avidity by all. Undoubtedly the book is a success." - East Anglian Daily Times."A book of thrilling adventure. Sensational adventures which make thrilling and gripping reading. Mrs Christie has certainly succeeded in writing a story not only entertaining, but ingenious and amazingly clever." - Irish Independent.Like its predecessor, 'The Mysterious Affair at Styles, ' 'The Secret Adversary' was first published as a serialization in The Times weekly edition (aka The Weekly Times) as a complete and unabridged text in seventeen installments from 12 August (Issue 2328) to 2 December 1921 (Issue 2343). Christie was paid £50 for the serialization rights (£1,545 in 2003 currency).

The _Lusitania_ had beenstruck by two torpedoes in succession and was sinking rapidly, whilethe boats were being launched with all possible speed. The women andchildren were being lined up awaiting their turn. Some still clungdesperately to husbands and fathers; others clutched their childrenclosely to their breasts. One girl stood alone, slightly apart fromthe rest. She was quite young, not more than eighteen. She did not seemafraid, and her grave, steadfast eyes looked straight ahead."I beg your pardon."A man's voice beside her made her start and turn. She had noticed thespeaker more than once amongst the first-class passengers. There hadbeen a hint of mystery about him which had appealed to her imagination.He spoke to no one. If anyone spoke to him he was quick to rebuff theoverture. Also he had a nervous way of looking over his shoulder with aswift, suspicious glance.She noticed now that he was greatly agitated. There were beads ofperspiration on his brow. He was evidently in a state of overmasteringfear. And yet he did not strike her as the kind of man who would beafraid to meet death!"Yes?" Her grave eyes met his inquiringly.He stood looking at her with a kind of desperate irresolution."It must be!" he muttered to himself. "Yes--it is the only way." Thenaloud he said abruptly: "You are an American?""Yes.""A patriotic one?"The girl flushed."I guess you've no right to ask such a thing! Of course I am!""Don't be offended. You wouldn't be if you knew how much there was atstake. But I've got to trust some one--and it must be a woman.""Why?""Because of 'women and children first.'" He looked round and lowered hisvoice. "I'm carrying papers--vitally important papers. They may make allthe difference to the Allies in the war. You understand? These papershave _got_ to be saved! They've more chance with you than with me. Willyou take them?"

Excerpt: And Then There Were None is a detective fiction novel by Agatha Christie, first published in the United Kingdom by the Collins Crime Club on 6 November 1939 under the title Ten Little Niggers which was changed by Dodd, Mead and Company in January 1940 because of the presence of a racial epithet to the title And Then There Were None. In the novel, ten people, who have previously been complicit in the deaths of others but have escaped notice or punishment, are tricked into coming onto an island. Even though the guests are the only people on the island, they are all mysteriously murdered one by one, in a manner paralleling, inexorably and sometimes grotesquely, the old nursery rhyme, "Ten Little Niggers." The UK edition retailed at seven shillings and sixpence (7 6) and the US edition at $2.00. The novel has also been published and filmed under the title Ten Little Indians. It is Christie's best-selling novel with 100 million sales to date, making it the world's best-selling mystery ever, and one of the best-selling books of all time (Publications International lists it as 7th best-selling). It has been adapted into several plays, films, and a video game. Justice Wargrave, Vera Claythorne, Philip Lombard, ...

International intrigue leads to murder at an English manor house in this classic mystery introducing the detection skills of Superintendent Battle. Never do favors—that’s the lesson it would’ve behooved Anthony Cade to learn before getting himself wrapped up in a case of conspiracy and murder. Politician George Lomax has persuaded Lord Caterham to host a weekend party at Chimneys, his country estate. Lomax hopes to cement plans to reinstate the monarchy in Herzegovina. But when the prince of Herzegovina turns up dead, Cade has a lot of explaining to do. After all, his footprints were found on the grounds . . . though not inside the house. As one criminal conspiracy leads to another, both Scotland Yard and the French Sûreté are on the scene to set things right. Soon, thanks to the detective work of Superintendent Battle, everyone’s secrets—and the secret of Chimneys itself—will be on display.
