Just after World War I, Tommy Beresford and Tuppence Cowley are desperately short of money. With a shortage of job opportunities, they form a partnership, hiring themselves out as “young adventurers, willing to do anything, go anywhere.” In their first dangerous assignment, they must use all their ingenuity to save not only their own lives but also the life of a mysterious girl.

The girl in the photograph has been missing for five years. Neither her body nor the secret documents she was carrying have ever been found. Now postwar England’s economic recovery depends on finding her and getting the papers back. But the two young Brits working undercover for the ministry, Tommy and Tuppence, know only that her name was Jane Finn and the only photo of her is in the hands of her rich American cousin. They don’t yet know about a mysterious and ruthless man called “Mr. Brown” or the beautiful but sinister older woman who knows all about Jane Finn—and therefore must die.

    Daily Chronicle (London)

  • “We promise our readers an exciting story of adventure, full of hairbreadth escapes, and many disappointments if they try to guess the riddle before the author is ready to give them the clue…An excellent story.”

    Saturday Review

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Penny | 2/12/2014

    " This Agatha Christy book had neither Hercule Poirot nor Miss Marple. It still had all the twists and turns of plot you would expect. It is unusual for me to be able to pick the villain from an Agatha Christy story. This time I was knew who-done-it. The flavor of this book was rather juvenile but worth reading. "
