Product description

A middle-aged diplomat is accosted in an airport lounge and his identity stolen...Sir Stafford Nye's journey home from Malaya to London takes an unexpected twist in the passenger lounge at Frankfurt - a young woman confides in him that someone is trying to kill her. Yet their paths are to cross again and again - and each time the mystery woman is introduced as a different person.

In an arena where no-one can be sure of anyone, Nye must do battle with a well-armed, well-financed, well-trained - and invisible - enemy...

Author information

Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. Her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, written towards the end of the First World War, introduced us to Hercule Poirot, who was to become the most popular detective in crime fiction since Sherlock Holmes. She is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and another billion in over 100 foreign languages. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 19 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott.

Review quote

'Marvellously entertaining' OBSERVER 'It is not an impossible story - it is only a fantastic one.' AGATHA CHRISTIE

Editorial reviews

A geopolitical fantasia which radiates (divagates?) in all directions and begins with the use of agreeable Sir Stafford Nye, a diplomat, by a young woman on a plane and later his hijacking onto an investigating committee of the upheaval to come. This will be due to Youth Power as well as other forces, in particular a Project Benvo which promises permanent peace. The action is spotty but then Agatha Christie is enough of a grande dame to get away with her grand design in the form of a morality rather than mystery play. (Kirkus Reviews)
