EXCERPT: It was 2 pm on the afternoon of May 7, 1915.

“Don't be offended because I think you're young. Youth is a failing only too easily outgrown.” I am willing to bet anything that Tommy and Tuppence are the two cutest wannabe detectives in the panorama of spy fiction in its entirety. Yes, spy fiction: I dove into this expecting a crime story, instea Leggi tutto
