Publisher's Summary

When a number of leading scientists disappear without a trace, concern grows within the international intelligence community. Are they being kidnapped? Blackmailed? Brainwashed?

One woman appears to have the key to the mystery. Unfortunately, Olive Betteron now lies in a hospital bed, dying from injuries sustained in a Moroccan plane crash.

Meanwhile, in a Casablanca hotel room, Hilary Craven prepares to take her own life. But her suicide attempt is about to be interrupted by a man who will offer her an altogether more thrilling way to die.

Agatha Christie just got better!

Have been an Agatha Christie fan from a very young age reading her books time & time again, but due to eye problems I listened to several of my favourite A.Christie books through Audible read by Emelia Fox...she has put life & dare I say even more enjoyment into them all once again!
Keep it up Audible & Emelia....

An enjoyable story.

I enjoyed this Agatha Christie story. Entertaining with enough twists to keep it entertaining. I guessed a few of the plot lines but still had enough surprises to entertain. I enjoyed the different view of travel just after the war that modern authors would miss.

atypical Christie but very absorbing.

This is a truly odd book. Set within the context of the cold war, it held some excellent characterisation, esoecually if the central femake character. It contains some of that toe-curlingly dated Christie racism, eg of the Africans and especially a man described dusparagingly as 'yellow' , but the plot development is very engaging and well thought out. I dusliked EmiliaFox's acxents for non-English /Amerucan charcters - very geating and stereotyped -and it did detract from my enjoyment to some degree.
