Partners in Crime

Before Robert Wagner and Stefanie Powers starred in “Hart to Hart” or William Powell and Myrna Loy played Nick and Nora Charles, Agatha Christie created the characters Tommy and Tuppence Beresford.

Thomas and Prudence  — as they are known in polite company — are the seminal fast-talking husband and wife who solve crimes because they love slumming, chasing leads and being right, not because they need the work nor believe in “justice.”
