How I read it: Kindle
Synopsis: Set in 1919, young couple Tommy Beresford and Tuppence Cowley form a partnership, hiring themselves out as ''young adventurers''. Their first case, however, is more of an adventure than they expect - working to find documents that, if they were known to the general public, would fuel a communist revolution in Britain.
My Thoughts: I love Tommy and Tuppence and this is the start of their many adventures together. The beginning, opens on a sinking ship and the adventure continues throughout. I've choose to read the books in order of publication and this is a great second book.
There were a few things I wished happened more:
(1) I wish Tommy and Tuppence spend more time together in the book. I would have liked to see them in action together.
(2) I wish there were more suspects. Normally the villain is one of many but in this book, it's clearly down to two.
Spoiler Alert! (3) The way the book ended bothered me. The villain (a super villain - the greatest mastermind in in the world) gets caught so easily. And when he's caught, he becomes a coward.
But, other then that, you won't be disappointed from this FREE book.
