Tommy and Tuppence Beresford are awaiting a letter from Russia, that they have told may contain some information of international importance, hidden away under the stamp. However, when the letter arrives it seems that more than one party is awaiting it, and it is up to Tommy and Tuppence to make sure it doesn’t get into the wrong hands.

This is a short story that is now available as a stand alone short story, and readers can also find it in the anthology called “Partners in Crime”. First publishe
A very short story that didn't have a lot going on. The most interesting aspect is the multiple mentions of Bulldog Drummond, a competitor book series to Agatha Christie's. The characters in this one mention to the bad guys that they need to keep up with modern culture, including Bulldog Drummond. This is sort of like Macy's Santa recommending shopping at Gimbels!
This book was interesting and engaging. I don't know if there is a proper order for the short stories, but I've read one other and enjoyed both so far. This was quick, but fun to see how it unfolded.
Short story previously published in Partners in Crime.

Tommy & Tuppence are not my favourite of Christie's detectives. This was fairly dull.

My first Tommy and Tuppence story. I love it. They are so sassy.
This audiobook was actually pretty boring.
