Publisher's Summary

Published in January 1922, The Secret Adversary is the second detective fiction novel by British crime novelist Agatha Christie.

The book introduces the characters of Tommy Beresford and Prudence Tuppence Cowley, two out-of-work 20-somethings in post-war London. The two agree to form The Young Adventurers, Ltd, hiring themselves out with the slogan no reasonable offer refused. They are quickly enlisted to solve the mysterious disappearance of a young woman who was entrusted with sensitive diplomatic documents amid the sinking of the RMS Lusitania.

Reviewed positively at the time of its release, the story maintains its gripping suspense until the very end.

Poor quality recording

The book is great. The recording is of very poor quality. The voice is really jumpy and echo-y. It is so irritating that I couldn’t handle listening for the whole book. I haven’t heard this narrator before so I’m not sure if her voice is intolerable or if it is just a bad recording.

I do not recommend.

I suggest you get the Hugh Fraser narrated version instead.
