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.
