ACRC: #2 The Secret Adversary

Published in 1922, this was Agatha Christie's second novel, and her first featuring Tommy and Tuppence.

The copy I have appears appears to be a Harper Collins fascimile of the original Bodley Head publication. Advertising on the covers and flyleaf tell me that the first, THE MYSTERIOUS AFFAIR AT STYLES, sold for 7s. 6d.

If you'd like to join a few of us in a challenge to read the Agatha Christie novels in order (at a leisurely pace I might say, maybe a couple a month) , please feel free to do so. We are not far on our journey, so you won't have to jog very hard at this stage to catch up.

Check the opening blog of the Agatha Christie Reading Challenge here.
