They Came to Baghdad (Paperback)
The Queen of Mystery has come to Harper Collins Agatha Christie, the acknowledged mistress of suspense--creator of indomitable sleuth Miss Marple, meticulous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, and so many other unforgettable characters--brings her entire oeuvre of ingenious whodunits, locked room mysteries, and perplexing puzzles to Harper Paperbacks. In her classic They Came to Baghdad, a bright, young adventure seeker in the Middle East finds more excitement than she bargained for when a wounded spy expires in her hotel room.
“Time and again Agatha Christie pulled off what many obviously greater writers labored for in vain, a work of art which is both perfectly crafted and morally satisfying.”
-A. N. Wilson
“The action is rapid....The characters are astonishingly real.”
“A very human heroine, whose powers of invention, just like those of her creator, never fail her.”
-Times Literary Supplement (London)
