Description Comments Ungluers 3 More The book introduces the characters of Tommy and Tuppence who are featured in three other Christie books and one collection of short stories written throughout her writing career. The New York Times Book Review of June 11, was also impressed, stating, "It is safe to assert that unless the reader peers into the last chapter or so of the tale, he will not know who this secret adversary is until the author chooses to reveal him.

Many of the situations are a bit moth-eaten from frequent usage by other writers, but at that Miss Christie manages to invest them with a new sense of individuality that renders them rather absorbing.

I still don't understand why, if he's Mr.

Brown, he rescued us. Tuppence recounted to Sir James the exciting events of the evening, ending up: I can. So can young Beresford, by his actions.

As a last hope Jane Finn was to be allowed to escape—and the escape must be managed so that she harbours no suspicions of its being a put-up job.

They're not averse to young Beresford's being in the neighbourhood, and, if necessary, communicating with you. They'll take care to get him out of the way at the right minute. Then Julius Hersheimmer dashes up and rescues you in true melodramatic style. Bullets fly— but don't hit anybody.

What would have happened next? You would have driven straight to the house in Soho and secured the document which Miss Finn would probably have entrusted to her cousin's keeping. Or, if he conducted the search, he would have pretended to find the hiding-place already rifled. He would have had a dozen ways of dealing with the situation, but the result would have been the same.

And I rather fancy some accident would have happened to both of you. You see, you know rather an inconvenient amount. That's a rough outline. I admit I was caught napping; but somebody else wasn't. Evidently when the right moment came to get rid of him—he was too sharp for them.

All the same, I'm not too easy in my mind about him. Brown," said Sir James dryly. If Beresford has still got the upper hand, there's nothing to fear. If otherwise, our enemy will come to find us, and he will not find us unprepared! I know better than even to suggest going without you, Miss Tuppence —— ".

I must go through with this business to the end. I'm heaps better now anyway. Sir James's car was ordered round. During the short drive Tuppence's heart beat tumultuously. In spite of momentary qualms of uneasiness respecting Tommy, she could not but feel exultation.

They were going to win! The car drew up at the corner of the square and they got out. Sir James went up to a plain-clothes man who was on duty with several others, and spoke to him.

Then he rejoined the girls. It is being watched at the back as well, so they are quite sure of that. Anyone who attempts to enter after we have done so will be arrested immediately. Shall we go in? A policeman produced a key.

So strong was the illusion that she almost fancied she could make out the outline of a form. Supposing Mr. Brown—Julius—was there waiting. Impossible of course! Yet she almost went back to put the curtain aside and make sure.

Now they were entering the prison room. No place for any one to hide here, thought Tuppence, with a sigh of relief, then chided herself indignantly. She must not give way to this foolish fancying—this curious insistent feeling that Mr. Brown was in the house. A stealthy footstep on the stairs? There was some one in the house! She was becoming hysterical. Jane had gone straight to the picture of Marguerite.

She unhooked it with a steady hand. The dust lay thick upon it, and festoons of cobwebs lay between it and the wall. Sir James handed her a pocket-knife, and she ripped away the brown paper from the back. The advertisement page of a magazine fell out. Jane picked it up.
