The Secret Adversary

The Secret Adversary, Agatha Christie’s second novel, introduces Tommy and Tuppence, the two much-loved mystery-solving adventurers.
The novel centers around a mysterious young girl, suffering from amnesia, who was present on the sinking of the Lusitania. As Tommy and Tuppence try to unravel the mystery, they find themselves embroiled with mysterious millionaires and the dangerous politics of nation-states.
Contemporary reviews of The Secret Adversary were positive, and the success of the novel paved the way not just for future Tommy and Tuppence adventures, but for a long, storied career of literary success for Christie.

I have read many of Agatha Christie's books, but this one is my favourite. I would definitely read it many more times!

Tup­pence turned sharply, but the words hov­er­ing on the tip of her tongue re­mained un­spoken, for the man’s ap­pear­ance and man­ner did not bear out her first and most nat­ural as­sump­tion. She hes­it­ated. As if he read her thoughts, the man said quickly:
“I can as­sure you I mean no dis­respect.”
Tup­pence be­lieved him. Al­though she dis­liked and dis­trus­ted him in­stinct­ively, she was in­clined to ac­quit him of the par­tic­u­lar motive which she had at first at­trib­uted to him. She looked him up and down. He was a big man, clean shaven, with a heavy jowl. His eyes were small and cun­ning, and shif­ted their glance un­der her dir­ect gaze.
“Well, what is it?” she asked.
The man smiled.
“I happened to over­hear part of your con­ver­sa­tion with the young gen­tle­man in Ly­ons’.”
“Well—what of it?”
“Noth­ing—ex­cept that I think I may be of some use to you.”
Another in­fer­ence forced it­self into Tup­pence’s mind:
“You fol­lowed me here?”
