The Secret AdversaryThe Secret Adversary by Agatha Christie

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

International intrigue, kidnappings, missing documents and constant deceiving… the plot of this fast-paced novel is as witty and compelling as the main characters, steadfast Tommy, no-nonsense Tuppence and the rich and extravagant Julius (who, if this were a movie, would be chewing scenery left and right). While the fear of a labour strike paving the way to a Socialist revolution in Great Britain might seems a bit silly nowadays, it was perceived as a serious threat at the time, and Christie plays every trope of the genre for all it’s worth.
