9780007354726: They Came to Baghdad (Agatha Christie Facsimile Edtn)

A lovesick young girl becomes embroiled in a plot to destroy world peace…

Baghdad is the chosen location for a secret summit of superpowers, concerned but not convinced, about the development of an, as yet, unidentified and undescribed secret weapon.

Only one man has the proof that can confirm the nature of this fantastic secret weapon – a British agent named Carmichael. Unfortunately the criminal organisation responsible for the weapon’s development will stop at nothing to prevent him entering Baghdad and presenting his proof to the assembled delegates. Can Carmichael enter the city against such odds?

Into this explosive situations appears Victoria Jones, a girl with a yearning for adventure who gets more than she bargains for when a wounded Carmichael dies in her arms in her hotel room.

Now, if only she could make sense of his last words ‘…Lucifer…Basrah…Lefarge…’

Review:

‘A very human heroine, whose powers of invention, like those of her creator, never fail her’
Times Literary Supplement

‘All in all, the most satisfactory novel in some years from one of the most satisfying of novelists.’
New York Times

Book Description:

This fast-moving and intriguing tale of world politics centres around Victoria Jones, an impetuous young lady whose chance meeting with Edward Goring in a London Park leads her to follow him to Baghdad. There she is recruited by Mr Dakin of the Intelligence Service, who asks her to undertake a secret mission for him. Despite the grave danger to her life Victoria relishes her assignment. But how does Edward fit in with what she has discovered and can she really trust him - or indeed any of the others she becomes embroiled with?
