Picked up a copy from a thrift store - must say it's the best $3.50 I've spent in a while! It's 1940 and the Beresfords, Tommy and Tuppence, are middle-aged and longing for something to do. Their grown-up children are part of the war effort but they themselves have been left out in the cold. But before they know it, they're recruited to the seaside town of Leahampton. Their mission: to sniff out who among the hotel guests are subversive agents.

It's nice to meet a book set during WWII that isn't all blood and guts and concentration camps. It's still a mystery at heart, and the characters are all the people that you'd expect from an Agatha Christie outing. This continued to be great fun even after I spotted the solution, which is a testament to the lively writing and the warmth and good humour imbued in these characters.
