    Baghdad is holding a secret superpower summit, but the word is out, and an underground organization in the Middle East is plotting to sabotage the talks.

    Into this explosive situation appears Victoria Jones, a young woman with a yearning for adventure who gets more than she bargains for when a wounded spy dies in her hotel room.

    The only man who can save the summit is dead. Can Victoria make sense of his dying words? "Lucifer...Basrah...Lefarge."

    What made the experience of listening to They Came to Baghdad the most enjoyable?

    This is a lesser known Christie book, but one of my favorites. Imagine my disappointment to find that the recording does NOT include the ending to the book!!!

    As a student of medieval history, Gil Patterson is a woman familiar with dark stories. She knows well the Crusades, the Black Death, and the other horrors of the Middle Ages, but it is another kind of atrocity that has begun to haunt her dreams. She sees forces of evil assaulting a beleaguered kingdom, whose kind people are on the brink of annihilation, and awakes each morning in a cold sweat. Gil dismisses the dreams until a wizard appears in her apartment. He has crossed into her dimension, passing through the fraying fabric of the universe, to ask her help.

    What would have made Time of the Dark better?

    My free Natural Reader computer program does a better job reading this than the narrator. This is one of my favorite series by Barbara Hambly and I was thrilled to see it on audible. Until I realized that the narration didn't get better as the reader got into the story. Heavy sigh.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Couldn't listen to the book. Let Kindle read it for me.
