Tommy and Tuppence Beresford have just become the proud owners of an old house in an English village. Along with the property, they have inherited some worthless bric-a-brac, including a collection of antique books. While rustling through a copy of The Black Arrow, Tuppence comes upon a series of apparently random underlinings.

However, when she writes down the letters, they spell out a very disturbing message: Mary Jordan did not die naturally. And 60 years after their first murder, Mary Jordan's enemies are still ready to kill....

    " While this isn't top-notch Christie, it is charming. I had to push through the beginning but then things got rolling, and the wit and cleverness of T & T unfolded. I loved scenes where Tuppence 'plays with toys' and 'operates' on a rocking horse. "

    " I may have been expecting too much from this book as it was the only one from the Tommy and Tuppence series that I had not read and it was the final one, but sadly I have to admit that it was slightly disappointing. It was fairly slow going and tended to jump from scene to scene without much flow - I remember my English Literature teacher advising us to use link sentences to lead into the next paragraph, that was not evident here - perhaps this jumpy nature was meant to be representative of Tuppence's quick and erratic thinking. I don't think the story really gets going until chapter 11, at which point, it becomes fast paced with an exciting finale. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Martha | 2/4/2014

    " Not as good as the other Tommy and Tuppence books. Too much talk and not enough action. The plot didn't quite hang together either. But, I still liked the characters and I even thought the dog was pretty funny. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ash | 2/1/2014

    " Probably the worst book I have read of Agatha's so far. I can't believe this book was written by the same person who wrote books like "And then there were none". Most part of the book is full of dialogues and hardly any action. There is nothing like a puzzling mystery. Listen to gossips, talk to people. Repeat the same facts and talk about previous adventures (N or M). That's it. I kept thinking that the last part of the book may be fast paced, but sadly even that did not have much to offer. Pretty disappointing book, considering that it is the last book written by her. "

    " The final Tommy and Tuppence mystery. Tommy and Tuppence (unlike Poirot and Marple) aged over the course of their (and Agatha's) career. Now in their 70s, they've retired to a coastal village. After finding clues to a decades old murder in a children's book, they begin investigations that turn up an long-standing espionage ring. Not a bad book, but a little exposition and denoument heavy in the writing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anne Fuller | 1/25/2014

    " Not my favorite Christie- isn't moving like the others do. I also read The Hollow by her last week and like that one much better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emily | 1/11/2014

    " This is def my least favorite Agatha Christie! Is it just me or do Tuppence and Tommy seem like dimwits? Their conversations were dull and circular, and why did I only find in the last 20 pages that they are some old spy couple? I still have no idea who actually committed the murder of Mary Jordan. Things ended so abruptly! I'll take Miss Marple or Poirot anyday! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Berkley | 1/7/2014

    " Not the best book:( kinda confusing might be because it is part of a "series" I don't know if you have to read them in order though "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jonathan | 1/7/2014

    " This is one of my top ten books of all time. I love Tommy and Tuppence, who in this book, are elderly, and are moving into a new/old house where Tuppence finds clues to a murder that happened years before. The clues are underlined in a children's book, and let the fun begin! From a plot/mystery standpoint, the book is confusing and ambiguous. From an ambience/mood creating standpoint, I think this book is wonderful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah Sammis | 1/6/2014

    " It was one of my first Agatha Christie's and remains one of my favorites. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 12/30/2013

    " I loved the old house, the books, the clues and the romp through gardens and old sheds. Great fun! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Connie Myers | 12/28/2013

    " Almost tooooo British for me...kinda slow, weird dialogue between husband & wife, but it was still good. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Iris | 12/20/2013

    " Wat mij betreft de minste van de Tommy & Tuppence reeks. Met name de stukken waar Christie over politiek en spionage e.d. schrijft zijn erg warrig. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lili | 12/8/2013

    " Good story my least favourite of Agatha Christie investigators Tommy and Tuppence. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diane | 7/14/2013

    " Quaint Agatha Christie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 6/30/2013

    " Another great Christie adventure with Tommy & Tuppence. This time, the retired spies are settling into a new house and uncover a mysterious message left in a book which leads to many adventures. Not her absolute best, but still good! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Novia Raihanah | 6/27/2013

    " I'm like whaat. Why. How. Forget it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 5/2/2013

    " Enjoyable read. It kept me interested, though wasn't as mind-bogglingly clever as some of her others. I really enjoy the characters of Tommy and Tuppence. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Catherine | 2/7/2013

    " I had never heard of these characters. I like them. And I like the code in the book! Not one of the best mysteries, but good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie Conner | 11/24/2012

    " A great book about spies in England and how they integrated into rural England. I always like the historical references. Some of the spoken language parts were a bit harder to follow than usual Christie. "
