The Secret Adversary

The Secret Adversary - Agatha Christie I have read a number of the Tommy and Tuppence mysteries, but somehow missed out on the first one!In this tale, a very young Tommy and Tuppence are looking for work in post-WWI London and decide that they will go looking for adventure that will pay.It finds them in spades as they look for a young woman who was on the Lusitania ... and who may have secret plans in her possession that will endanger the British Empire. In addition to seeking out the young woman, Jane Finn, they need to avoid running afoul of an arch-criminal who calls himself Mr. Brown.The scenery and times are entertainingly presented, and even though I started to figure out the "whodunnit" about two-thirds into the book, the "reveal" was still well done.Great fun for Christie fans.
