Mini-Review: They Came to Baghdad by Agatha Christie

11410657

They Came to Baghdad is a stand alone mystery originally published in 1951.  It’s a story full of espionage and full of twists and turns.  It’s a lot of fun and a great rainy afternoon read.

What struck me most is that in 1951, people were still traveling so freely through the Middle East.  One of the travelers is a young, single woman, Victoria Jones.  She’s a bit of a nitwit but you do come to like her by the end.

Not destined to be in my top 5 Christies but still a great read.  4/5 stars.
