Description

It's a race against the clock in this tale of danger and intrigue. In the glitzy era of the 1920s, charming armature sleuths, Tommy and Tuppence set out to solve the mysterious disappearance of a client and unravel a mysterious plot involving blackmail, international intrigue, and perhaps even the sinking of the Lusitania.

When labor unrest erupts in England, the situation could turn deadly if a state secret falls into the wrong hands, but Tuppence has no qualms in accepting a job offer to stop that from happening. The job takes her to France for three months, and that's where the story takes a twist.

The country is on the verge of disaster and it will be up to Tommy and Tuppence to solve the mysterious disappearance of Jane Finn and expose a deadly plot, but their success depends on staying alive and remaining one step ahead of the villain.

Not your typical Agatha Christie tale

If you are expecting just another Agatha Christie mystery, you are in for a pleasant surprise. At its heart, The Secret Adversary is a mystery but Christie includes elements of adventure and espionage not normally seen in her stories.

The beginning of the story is so unlike the average Agatha Christie novel that some fans might be taken aback, but it picks up fast. The mystery and adventure had my undivided attention, like most Christie mysteries, this one won’t disappoint. The characters are interesting and the dialogue adds dimension to those characters. By the end of the book, you’ll agree that the Secret Adversary is indeed, classic Christie storytelling. The narrator did a great job of drawing me into the story and had a talent for bringing the characters to life with his different voices. If you’re an Agatha Christie fan I highly recommend you give this a listen!

an early work

this is one Agatha's early works and it shows. often it is overwritten and the phraseology of the Americans is over the top.

Great story but mweh narration

I'm revisiting A. Christie as I loved her books when I was in my teens. They still are great reads. Unfortunately narration of this one almost made me stop listening. The narrator did admittedly did a good job on the men's voices but his interpretation of the female voices was - to me - off-putting. I almost returned this book because of it. Trust AC to have written a story so engaging that I was determined to get to the end and find out who the villain was. (First time ever in reading an AC novel I got it right 😊)

Can't stand the narration

Narration is pretty bad, I listened to 1.5 hours of it and could not continue. The narrator seems to just say one word after another, rather than put appropriate emphasis on words in a sentence, etc. In addition, the "female" voices are really irritating. I have returned this book.
