Cute. Basically a collection of short stories, but with themes running throughout. It's very meta to see the couple attempting to take on the airs of Poirot---Christie has her main characters acting like her own character!
Featuring Christie's most charming set of sleuths, Tommy and Tuppence, Partners in Crime is a series of puzzles and mysteries T&T attempt to unravel as they pose as a pair of private investigators. Some are silly, some are sinister, all are clever and original. This is an immensely enjoyable light mystery, I especially love T&T's imitations of various famous detectives including Sherlock Holmes' deductions and Poirot's little grey cells.

Excellant book. Tommy and Tuppence are my favorite Agatha Christie heroes, and this book just gave me more reason to love them. Each chapter is an individual mystery, in and of itself. The whole book, however, follows a theme of a single mystery, and as they solve each chapter, they come closer and closer to solving the ultimate mystery. Fun twists and awesome dialogue make this book fun to read for anyone who loves mysteries.
A wonderful book introducing Tommy and Tuppence Beresford. They investigate and solve 18 different mysteries. The cases involve murder, counterfeit money and finding wealth for one of their clients. This is an awesome introduction to all of Agatha Christie's Tommy and Tuppence mystery solving.
Fun, 1920's type of humor. Tommy and Tuppence are now married and running a detective business. Each story is written and solved in the style of a famous mystery character of the day, for example Sherlock Holmes. I enjoyed it very much.
