The Beresfords meet their first client, a man whose secret affair with a shopgirl goes terribly awry when she disappears. Tommy assures him they will find her within twenty-four hours, though it is by no means certain that they will meet this impossible deadline.
This is a short story by Agatha Christie featuring the characters of Tommy and Tuppance.
This story seemed like one big joke. It wasn’t really a mystery at all. It was supposed to be a new private detective agency looking to solve its first case. The case wasn’t a case at all. It was like the two of them just bilked the money out of this poor unsuspecting guy. Not nice, Chrisite! I expected more.
