    This is short story featuring Agatha Christie's characters, Tommy and Tuppence. This story was very short--took less than an hour to read.Tommy works undercover in a detective agency with Tuppence as his secretary. One morning a girl walk in to seek their help locating a pink pearl that is missing from a pendant. The necklace belongs to a lady that is staying with her family. The night before there was a few people in for dinner and cards afterwards is when the pearl was missing. The family does not want to call in the police if they can help it. There have been rumors the owner is a bit of a kleptomaniac and it would not due to embarrass her. Tommy and Tuppence arrive at the house and start interviewing guest, family members and servants. Tommy is determined to check the rooms in the house and locate the pearl. Barely had he started checking out the bedrooms when he is temporairly locked in the bathroom with the lady's maid. Soon after Tommy takes off to run an errand and get some answers leaving Tuppence in a confused state. Tommy seems to be off track in this mystery. Until he comes back and has the police with him. Tuppence is more confused that ever. I think this story is too short. It was over before it began. I understood the solution to the mystery but it happened so quick and in the blink of an eye it was over. The story was rushed. I will read more of Tommy ànd Tuppence stories but I hope they are more entertaining than this one and not as rushed.

    I have read most of Agatha Cristie's work, but I hadn't read this, and it was a refreshing change after some heavy going with some other, darker work.Tommy and Tuppence Beresford are a husband-and-wife detective team trying to make a go of it in the early WWI period of England. They receive a case from an upper crust family and off they go....I was pleased to see I figured out part of the answer, but another part escaped me, so it was in effect, a brand new was of solving a crime for me, and a good story, to boot. It was still rather basic in description of character, or scene, but I believe Ms. Christie was still getting her "land legs," with mysteries during this time. Later on she developed tremendous skill in setting stages, developing characters and weaving plots. Still, this is a nice little period gem, especially for those who like to read one of the masters of crime fiction. I recommend this story.

    The whole scheme was obvious yet the sweet nice humor of the couple make-up for the rest.

    Listened during a commute traffic situation and my daughter fell asleep to the narration and I needed to give it another listen when I wasn’t so focused on driving. The gentle banter of Tommy and Tuppence is entertaining (I have read one other with them as the sleiths) and enjoyed that as well. Not the best of Agatha Christie, but a nice way to spend part of an hour.

    Short story - but filled with good stuff. Just like a pearl.

    I really do love these two, especially for how Christie uses them to poke fun at detective novels, her own included. I think that really speaks to her humility, sense of humor, and broad view of life. I will freely admit that I got it all wrong. I reeled in that red herring right from the start. It was such a twist when the truth of it all came out. Bravo!

    Actual Rating: ***1/2After discovering the wealth of Agatha Christie eBooks available for download from the Boston Public Library, I have a long list lined up. I need to read more background about her writing and characters, but this title sort of called out to me, "start here." Loved the story, but felt I had been dropped into the middle of something bigger.

    Short story previously published in Partners in Crime. Tommy & Tuppence are not my favourite of Christie's detectives. This was OK.
