Agatha Christie They Came to Baghdad


My utter, utter favourite. The lead character is a feisty but flawed orphan who follows a whim and ends up in a foreign country, surviving on her wits. Christie's spare prose gives all the heat and dust of Iraq; the pace is fast; the dialogue never clichéd. It is possibly more pertinent today than it was when written, revolving as it does around 'disaffected youth' and fundamentalism in the Middle East.

Other Information

The Times Literary Supplement said "more of a thriller than a detective story, though there are plenty of mysteries and two surprises reserved for the closing chapters; one of these is perhaps her best since the unmasking of the criminal in The Seven Dials Mystery."
