Partners in Crime: A Tommy and Tuppence Mystery
Tommy and Tuppence Beresford are restless for adventure, so when they are asked to take over Blunt's International Detective Agency, they leap at the chance.
Their first case is a success—the triumphant recovery of a pink pearl. Other cases soon follow—a stabbing on Sunningdale golf course; cryptic messages in the personal columns of newspapers; and even a box of poisoned chocolates. But can they live up to their slogan of "Any case solved in 24 hours"?

Praise for Partners in Crime: A Tommy and Tuppence Mystery…
“Agatha Christie taught me two things: that plotting mysteries was an art, and that a woman detective could be as strong a character as a male detective.A woman detective didn’t need to be a housewife sleuthing in her spare time, she could be an equal in the game.”
