The Secret Adversary by Agatha Christie

"Tuppence pulled herself together with an effort.Her voice shook a little, but she spoke out bravely."

I recall fondly my pre-teens when I was completely enamoured of the work of Agatha Christie. Happily I recently discovered this little treasure which is out of copyright and therefore freely available on the net. Tuppence is sick of being broke and laments her current cash strapped status while talking with her old pal, Tommy. Together they form, The Young Adventurers Ltd, ready to do anything for money. That sounds far more salacious than anything they volunteer for.
The two young adventurers find themselves swept up in some dangerous, international intrigue regarding a missing girl, some classified documents and the mysterious Inspector Brown.
Adventure, money, romance, spies and drama are all part of the status quo here and the pages fly back in merry succession. A very quick read and an enjoyable one!

5 out of 5 dynamic duos are always a winning combination.
