Agatha Christie has been the uncrowned queen of mystery. The current generation has grown up reading her. Secret Adversary is her second book and hence doesn’t need a certificate from any blogger. Yet the effort of Srishti Publishers in reintroducing the book to the Indian Audience.
As the blurb says ” The Secret Adversary has the right blend of thrill, mystery and nail-biting adventure”
This is the first book in the Tommy and Tuppence series. The plot takes off when Tommy and Tuppence set out to start a business venture but get pulled into a whirlwind of mysterious incidents which eventually put their life in danger.
With a shriek of terror, she sprang to her feet. Her outstretched hand pointed over Tuppence’s head. Then she swayed to the ground in a dead faint.
The plot is brimful of suspense and twists that the readers cannot afford to miss even a single line, nor keep the book aside for a moment.
If audacity had successfully carried him so far, it was to be hoped it would carry him yet farther.
Coming to think of it, most of the instances in the book were copied in the future and some of the scenes were reproduced exactly the same way in many movies and hence proving the greatness of the writer. She thought of the plot at that age as something unbelievable. The book is a must-read for all thriller lovers.
