Thomas Beresford and Prudence Cowley (better known as Tommy and Tuppence) are a couple of fictional detectives created by British author Agatha Christie. They stumbled into detective work accidentally, when they discovered it was more profitable than blackmail. Interestingly, unlike most of Christie’s characters, Tommy and Tuppence age inbetween their appearances.

The characters appeared first in The Secret Adversary in 1922 and strangely enough, would not appear in another novel for nearly 20 years. After that, it would be nearly 30 more years before their next book and then another 5 before their final full-length novel (the final novel written by Christie). They also appeared in a 1929 collection of short stories called Partners in Crime. Below is a list of all of the novels in which Tommy and Tuppence appear in:
