"This delightfully witty book will come as a pleasant surprise to all admirers of these ingenious detective thrillers for which Agatha Christie is famous. It tells the story of the amazing adventures of two amateur detectives - Tommy, a remarkable young man of thirty-two, and his equally remarkable wife, Tuppence - who follow the methods of famous detective heroes, such as Sherlock Holmes, Inspector French, Roger Sheringham, Bulldog Drummond, Father Brown and even Monsieur Poirot himself. Problem after problem comes before them for solution, and the account of their endeavours to live up to their slogan, 'Blunt's Brilliant Detectives ! Any case solved in twenty-four hours !' makes delicious reading." (from the backside of the dust jacket)

Book is in very good condition except a few creased page corners, a former owner's bookplate on front endpaper and miniscule foxing to few pages. Minor rubbing to edges, some signs of shelfware and mild bumping to the board corners.

Facsimile dust jacket is fine and now protected by a new transparent Adaptaroll sleeve.

Overall a nice 1920ies copy of the tenth Agatha Christie crime book and the second appearance of Tuppence and Tommy (or more formally Prudence Cowley and Thomas Beresford) in this collection of several crime stories.
