Synopsis:
Some secret plans have survived the sinking of the Lusitania, and amateur sleuths Tommy and Tuppence are on the trail of international spies in order to recover them. "Young Adventurers Limited" is a brand new private detective agency, set up by the dashing Tommy Beresford and the resourceful Tuppence Cowley. Their first assignment is to track down some secret documents that disappeared after the sinking of the Lusitania. Soon they are on the trail of the mysterious Mr. Brown, the head of an international gang of crooks—and in more danger than they bargained for!

Review:

The first Tommy and Tuppence mystery, including an all-new introduction by Agatha Christie expert John Curran

Tommy and Tuppence, two people flat broke and out of work, are restless for excitement. They embark on a daring business scheme—Young Adventurers Ltd.—"willing to do anything, go anywhere." But their first assignment, for the sinister Mr. Whittington, draws them into a diabolical, political conspiracy. Under the eye of the elusive, ruthless Mr. Brown, they find themselves plunged into more danger than they ever imagined.
