A farce, not her typical mystery

Let's be clear, this is not one of Christie's brilliant works. It is, however, entirely different from any other book she ever wrote. She tells us, before the novel begins, that this book is a farce. It is an improbable scenario that actually could exist in the world. A fantastical hypothetical exploration of a "what if" scenario, Admittedly, it is sluggish at times, but I am glad that I plowed through those moments to the end. While the end wraps up surprisingly fast and has a couple loose ends dangling, overall it is satisfactory conclusion to her work. If you can get through the slow parts, it is worth a read.

While temporarily stranded at the Frankfurt airport, a member of the British Foreign Office accommodates an unusual request from a woman whom he has never met. Wow! And she isnt even good looking, but she does have an aquiline nose. It somewhat reminds me of an Eric Ambler spy novel, Background to Danger. Well, the whole world seems to be in a dither as students are uprising worldwide. No only that but they are armed to the teeth with all the latest technology in armament courtesy of a filthy rich, immense blob of a woman from Central Europe. Can our two chance acquaintances from Chapter 1 avert worldwide disaster? The theme of this novel expands on one that she wrote twenty years earlier, They Came to Baghdad. Both are quite a departure from her habitual themes.

It was an unusual predicament for Sir Stafford Nye-to awaken in a stupor after being drugged, only to find his passport stolen. There was also no trace of the fascinating woman he encountered in Frankfurt who begged him to help save her life. But Sir Stafford's troubles are only just beginning. The target of two murder attempts, he now seeks the help of the stranger who so urgently sought his. If he can locate her. What he finds is a woman of numerous identities and twice as many secrets, who ushers him into the shadows of an international conspiracy that could well prove to be the death of them.
