Alex Jennings sounds just like Tommy AND just like Tuppence. And his American characters have a recognizable Midwestern speech pattern--which isn’t bad for an English narrator who began his career at the Old Vic. Jennings reads with a panache that highlights the breezy, adventuresome good humor of this first of Agatha Christie's few mysteries that featured the clever young couple, Tommy and Tuppence Beresford. In this one, it's 1922; the two demobbed, jobless friends join forces to become the Young Adventurers, who advertise that "no unreasonable offer" will be rejected. Instantly, they're investigating a complicated plot involving the sinking of the LUSITANIA, secret treaties, kidnapping, and Communists. Wonderful fun that is wonderfully read.
