Beschrijving

Tommy and Tuppence, a couple in love, are so broke that they are willing to do whatever it takes to earn some money. England after the Great War does not offer so many options, so they decide to establish their own business with the logo "willing to do anything, go anywhere". The first assignment comes shortly after and it seems deceptively easy. Tuppence has to pose as an American lady, called Jane Finn. What the couple did not know however, was the fact the Jane was an important figure for England’s economy and recovery. Will the danger they will find themselves in be worth it or will they lose more than they could have expected? "The Secret Adversary" holds the answers.

B. J. Harrison started his Classic Tales Podcast back in 2007, wanting to breathe new life into classic stories. He masterfully plays with a wide array of voices and accents and has since then produced over 500 audiobooks. Now in collaboration with SAGA Egmont, his engaging narration of these famous classics is available to readers everywhere.

Agatha Christie was an English writer who lived in the period 1890-1976. She is best known with her detective novels and short stories such as "Murder on the Links", "The Mystery of the Blue Jar", "And Then There Were None". The recipe for a great Agatha Christie novel is a smart detective, a series of clues, some suspects, a long expected solution, suspense and plotting. However she was implying that human’s nature is for the most part the same no matter what the case is. This is also the path that her main characters Lady Marple and detective Poirot followed in many of their investigation cases.
Agatha Christie, called by many "Queen of Crime" or "Queen of Mystery", is the best-selling author of all times. One can only find out why after embarking on an exciting and thrilling journey through her works.
