The Secret Adversary Audiobook

The Secret Adversary

Author: Agatha Christie Narrator: Edward Beesley Release Date: August 2020

“I've often noticed that once coincidences start happening they go on happening in the most extraordinary way.” In post-World War 1 England, a young soldier and a young war volunteer team up as “adventurers.” Out of work and out of money, the two try to find a way to earn money in a war-torn country. Soon after advertising themselves for hire in a newspaper, Tommy Beresford and his friend “Tuppence” are lured into trying to solve a mystery about the identity of a woman who was aboard the Lusitania ship when it sunk. The duo seeks out information about her identity and pieces together her story bit by bit, and travel around the country to seek out the truth of her disappearance. These adventurers almost get more adventure than they were prepared for, and their quest to solve the mystery takes them trekking through cities, facing mysterious and dangerous witnesses, and risking their lives in pursuit of the solution. Will they be able to find out the truth before someone halts their investigation? The Secret Adversary is a twisty mystery that ties together historical events with Agatha Christie’s signature sophisticated plot, and with solutions that are masterfully hidden throughout the entirety of the book. Her second published mystery novel, this title received positive criticism and is an often-referenced story for modern film and television.

Ask a Policeman Audiobook

Ask a Policeman

This new edition, which is reproduced from a first printing of the book, is introduced by the author Martin Edwards, archivist of the Detection Club, and includes a never-before-published Preface by Agatha Christie, ‘Detective Writers in England’, in which she discusses her fellow writers in the Detection Club. Lord Comstock is a barbarous newspaper tycoon with enemies in high places. His murder in the study of his country houseposes a dilemma for the Home Secretary. In the hours before his death, Lord Comstock’s visitors included the government Chief Whip, an Archbishop, and the Assistant Commissioner for Scotland Yard. Suspicion falls upon them all and threatens the impartiality of any police investigation. Abandoning protocol, the Home Secretary invites four famous detectives to solve the case: Mrs Adela Bradley, Sir John Saumarez, Lord Peter Wimsey, and Mr Roger Sheringham. All are different, all are plausible, all are on their own – and none of them can ask a policeman… This classic whodunit adopted a completely new approach: Milward Kennedy proposed the title, John Rhode plotted the murder and provided the suspects, and four of their contemporaries were asked to lend their well-known detectives to the task of providing solutions to the crime. But there was to be another twist: the authors would swap detectives and use the characters in their sections of the book. Thus Gladys Mitchell and Helen Simpson swapped Mrs Bradley and Sir John Saumarez, and Dorothy Sayers and Anthony Berkeley swapped Lord Peter Wimsey and Roger Sheringham, enabling the authors to indulge in skilful and sly parodies of each other. The contributors to ASK A POLICEMAN are: John Rhode, Helen Simpson, Gladys Mitchell, Anthony Berkeley, Dorothy L. Sayers, Milward Kennedy with Agatha Christie and Martin Edwards.

The Secret Adversary Audiobook

The Secret Adversary

Author: Agatha Christie Narrator: Tara Mackinnon Dow Release Date: March 2020

Published in 1922, the Secret Adversary is Agatha Christie’s second published novel, the first being “The Mysterious Affair at Styles”. The original title was “The Joyful Venture”, which was changed to “The Young Adventurers” before “The Secret Adversary” was finally decided upon. It was published in 1922, and within its pages we are introduced to the young sleuths Tommy and Tuppence who would go on to appear in other Christie stories. Though not as prevalent as the well-known Poirot and Miss Marple, their companionship brings a fun and adventurous tone to the few books in which they feature. The novel centres around our young sleuths getting embroiled in political conspiracies and secret treaties. Apparently, Agatha Christie over-heard a conversation in a cafe in which the name ‘Jane Fish’ was used. She was struck by the name, which she later changed to Jane Finn. A graphic novel adaptation was released in 2008 by Harper Collins while the most recent television adaptation of the novel was done in 2015 and stared David Walliams as Tommy and Jessica Raine as Tuppence. While the situations they find themselves in may seem highly unlikely to our modern ears, it proves to be an enjoyable, engaging and fast paced read with plenty of plot twists.
