    Review of The Secret Adversary by Agatha Christie

    The Secret Adversary review
    "The Secret Adversary" marks the debut of amateur detective team Tommy and Tuppence, who appear in only three other books and a short story collection. The chemistry between them, the vivacity of each, and their truly amateur beginnings make the book particularly enjoyable: they are a perfect team, and quite different from the more well-known Poirot and Miss Marple. A mystery-lover who prefers more interaction and development among the characters will be likely to enjoy Tommy and Tuppence's story. The mystery itself is, as mentioned above, often melodramatic and the events can even savor of Nancy Drew, but the central plot - who is Mr. Brown? - has Christie's marks all over it. The clues are all given and the mystery can be solved, but the authoress strings the reader along until the very end. The characters' morality, particularly as regards Tuppence's avarice, can not always be condoned. There is also a fair amount of language, as mentioned above. However, as far as violent or psychological content goes, this is much lighter fare than can usually be found from Dame Christie.If you need homework help in writing review or something different than write to me!
