The story itself isn't as captivating as other novels by Agatha Christie. I would even go as far as to say that the end is quite obvious even - something one definitely isn't used to.
Also, I was not quite happy with Nadia May's performance as I was somewhat annoyed by her voice (this is certainly a taste issue - you should listen closely to the preview) and I think she could have put more effort into intonation and modulation.
Still. The Secret adversary is entertaining and lives of its funny parts, but the obvious story and the IMHO sub-par narrating performance would make me recommend this only for people interested in going through all of Christies work.

Agatha Christie strikes again! This is a mystery involving secret treaty papers, two young people who accidentally become detectives, a case of amnesia, and a shadowy underworld mastermind. Narrator does am admirable job with a challenging cast of characters and accents.

If you could sum up The Secret Adversary in three words, what would they be?
Suspense all through
Who was your favorite character and why?
Tuppence, even although the character was supposed to be young lady with limited exposure to the outside world (clergyman's daughter} her portrayal was very believable.
Which character – as performed by Nadia May – was your favourite?
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
enjoyed listening to it again and I am sure will again.
Any additional comments?
Nadia May used her voice very effectively for the female characters and was able to lower it enough for the male parts not to be distracting.
