When people think of history’s greatest writers of mystery, many think of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and his Sherlock Holmes’ stories. And as it turns out, the highest-selling author of all time was a writer of mysteries. But it wasn’t Conan Doyle.   By sales numbers, the world’s most popular writer is a different British mystery writer: Agatha Christie (1890-1976). Christie has sold billions of copies of her works, the most popular being her 66 detective novels and 14 short story collections (especially those featuring Hercule Poirot or Miss Jane Marple). Christie was also a well respected playwright, writing plays that have had long runs, such as The Mousetrap.

From the Back Cover:

Now the Major TV Series Partners in Crime

From the brilliant pen of Agatha Christie comes the first novel in her Tommy and Tuppence mystery series featuring the beloved sleuthing duo.

Tommy and Tuppence are young, in love . . . and flat broke. Restless for excitement, they decide to embark on a daring business scheme:  Young Adventurers Ltd.—“willing to do anything, go anywhere.” But they get more than they bargained for when their first assignment for the sinister Mr. Whittington draws them into a diabolical conspiracy.

It isn’t long before they find themselves plunged into more danger than they ever could have imagined—a danger that could put an abrupt end to their business . . . and their lives.

“Agatha Christie proves that if you really are good enough, you can break all the ‘rules’ and still come up with a winner.” —Anne Perry, New York Times bestselling author of the Thomas Pitt and William Monk series of Victorian mysteries
