Tommy & Tuppence linked short stories: 1930s - 1940s, with cases from the world's most unlikely detective agency . . .
Tommy and Tuppence Beresford were restless for the excitement of their earlier lives, so when Mr Carter, Chief of Intelligence, asks them to take over Blunt's International Detective Agency, they leap at the chance.
To guarantee they can live up to their slogan, "Any case solved in 24 hours", they decide to emulate the great historical detectives. After their triumphant recovery of a pink pearl, intriguing cases keep on coming their way: a stabbing on Sunningdale golf course; cryptic messages in the personal columns of the newspapers; and even a box of poisoned chocolates.
Here is a delicious parody of a dozen fictional sleuths, from Sherlock Holmes to Christie's own Hercule Poirot.
