The Famous Sleuths of Fiction World

I have been reading a couple of mystery books off-late so thought of posting a picture of some of the greatest sleuths of the fiction world....See if you remember them. Do you have another name that should get a place in this list?

The Secret Adversary

Book - The Secret Adversary
Author - Agatha Christie
Rating 2.5 stars out of 5


Post War, British diplomats are highly strung because an important and secret paper has been lost, and were it to fall in wrong hands could prove to be disastrous to the government and the country. And the chase begins.

If you think you have heard this one before, then the answer is yes. A million times probably. There is nothing new and at the time this book was written it must have been a highly fanciful and heart fluttering topic to write about. For that matter, spies haven’t lost their infamous position in the world of fiction, be it books or movies or television, yet. And going by the trend it isn’t something that will abate any time soon.

The book is a spy-thriller, the quest for the illusive Mr. Brown whom no one has seen but all claim to be a person with exceptional power and a memory to chill the most daring of all.
