Agatha Christie's complete Tommy and Tuppence short story collection, reissued with a striking new cover designed to appeal to the latest generation of Agatha Christie fans and book lovers.

Tommy and Tuppence Beresford were restless for adventure, so when they were asked to take over Blunt's International Detective Agency, they leapt at the chance.

After their triumphant recovery of a pink pearl, intriguing cases kept on coming their way: a stabbing on Sunningdale golf course; cryptic messages in the personal columns of newspapers; and even a box of poisoned chocolates.

Tommy and Tuppence are the most annoying characters Christie ever created and this book is not an exception. Here they start to run a detective agency in order to help Scotland Yard and Tommy's boss at the Secret Service catch some kind of Russian Mr Big.

Tommy and Tuppence are my favorites!!

Review by

I love this book. Great stories and a reminder of all the "great detectives" of the 1920s. It's no surprise that my little Scottie is named Tuppence.

Review by

It's very dated. In each incident, Tommy and Tuppence copy the methods and mannerisms of a famous fictional detective, and often his sidekick as well. But the book was written in 1929, and I'd never heard of most of these then-famous detectives. This really marred my enjoyment of the stories.
