Explanation of the Book:

The novel that introduced Tommy and Tuppence, a bantering pair of 1920s bright young things who solve a mystery together while falling for each other. The Great War is over and jobs are scarce. Tommy Beresford and Prudence "Tuppence" Cowley, who were friends before the war, run into each other in London and discover they are both equally short of money and opportunities. On a whim, they decide to start a business, advertising themselves as "The Young Adventurers." Their first job leads them into a series of increasingly dangerous situations involving international spies, a society beauty, a Russian count, the wreck of the Lusitania, an amnesia patient, an American millionaire, and a fiendishly clever arch-criminal known only as "Mr. Brown." By the time the dust settles, all the puzzle pieces have been fitted together--and the young couple have realized their feelings for each other and have become engaged.

Discovering that they're both currently unemployed, they come up with the idea of becoming adventurers,"willing to do anything, go anywhere." After they depart, a man named Mr. Whittington approaches Tuppence, and he leads her to his office. He overheard their conversation, and he wants to propose a job offer to Tuppence. He wants her to go to France to a place called Madame Colombier's for about three months. When he asks her what her name is, she doesn't want her father to think anything bad, so she says,"Jane Finn." Immeadiatly, Mr. Whittington gets very angry and says, "How much do you know? And how much do you want?" Tuppence manages to get fifty pounds off him, then she leaves. She and Tommy discuss the situation at an expensive restraunt and decide to try and find out who Jane Finn is. The next day they recieve two letters: one from a Mr. Carter, and one from a Julius P. Hersheimmer. They decide to tackle Mr. Carter first, and he happens to be from the Intelligence. They tell him all they know, and he tells them about Jane Finn-and their adversary Mr. Brown. Mr. Brown is a non-descript man who is behind the labor unrest and is causing alot of trouble. Their task is to unmask Mr. Brown, find Jane Finn, and recover the papers. Now they must face unspeakable danger to do this, but it is a race for time.

TWO BESTSELLING MYSTERIES IN ONE GREAT PACKAGE! From the Queen of Mystery, The Secret Adversary, the first Tommy and Tuppence mystery, and And Then There Were None, in which a group of ten people invited to a mysterious island are murdered one by one. THE SECRET ADVERSARY Tommy and Tuppence, two people flat broke and out of work, are restless for excitement.

Under the eye of the elusive, ruthless Mr. Brown, they find themselves plunged into more danger than they ever imagined. One of mystery’s most memorable sleuthing duos, Tommy and Tuppence lead readers down a harrowing maze of secrets, lies, and death in The Secret Adversary.

On the island they are cut off from everything but each other and the inescapable shadows of their own past lives. One by one, the guests share the darkest secrets of their wicked pasts. And one by one, they die… Which among them is the killer and will any of them survive?
