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.
