Set during the dark days of World War II, Agatha Christie’s N or M? puts two most unlikely espionage agents, Tommy and Tuppence Beresford, on the trail of a pair of Nazi spies who have murdered Britain’s top agent.
World War II is raging, and while the RAF struggles to keep the Luftwaffe at bay, Britain faces a sinister threat from “the enemy within”—Nazis posing as ordinary citizens.
With pressure mounting, the intelligence service appoints two improbable spies, Tommy and Tuppence Beresford. Their mission: to seek out a man and a woman from among the colorful guests at Sans Souci, a seaside hotel. But this assignment is far from an easy stroll along the promenade—N and M have just murdered Britain’s finest agent and no one can be trusted.

Amazing growth of characters
This war time espionage story lacks some of the humour of The Secret Adversary. However, it makes up for it in the depth of even the background characters. The usual red herrings are set up but you don’t mind taking the blind alley as you got to know some interesting characters on the way. Hugh Fraser handles the oral interpretation quite expertly.
Tommy and Tuppence are allowed to age, perhaps not with graces, but with aplomb.
