If you are expecting just another Agatha Christie mystery, you are in for a pleasant surprise. At its heart, The Secret Adversary is a mystery but Christie includes elements of adventure and espionage not normally seen in her stories.
The beginning of the story is so unlike the average Agatha Christie novel that some fans might be taken aback, but it picks up fast. The mystery and adventure had my undivided attention, like most Christie mysteries, this one won’t disappoint. The characters are interesting and the dialogue adds dimension to those characters. By the end of the book, you’ll agree that the Secret Adversary is indeed, classic Christie storytelling. The narrator did a great job of drawing me into the story and had a talent for bringing the characters to life with his different voices. If you’re an Agatha Christie fan I highly recommend you give this a listen!

this is one Agatha's early works and it shows. often it is overwritten and the phraseology of the Americans is over the top.
Love Agatha Christie , have been a huge fan for decades and have read and listened to practically all her books. This is a truly awful adaptation - only listened to 4 chapters then gave up - couldn't listen to any more. Don't bother wasting a credit on this audiobook:(

Would you try another book written by Agatha Christie or narrated by David McCallion?
We are great fans of Agatha Christie and have many of the audiobook versions of her stories. However, I would not buy another with this narrator. We found him slightly fast at times but it was his complete mispronunciations that spoiled the book for us. Is English his first language? The odd one can be forgiven but there were far too many
Who was your favorite character and why?
Tommy for his down to earth, hidden qualities.
How could the performance have been better?
Much better narrator
Did The Secret Adversary inspire you to do anything?
Look for another narrator when purchasing further books
