Merging literary biography with travel adventure, and ancient history with contemporary world events, Andrew Eames tells a riveting tale and reveals fascinating and little-known details en route in this exotic chapter in the life of Agatha Christie. His own trip from London to Baghdad - a journey much more difficult to make in 2002 with the political unrest in the Middle East and the war in Iraq, than it was in 1928 - becomes ineluctably intertwined with Agatha's, and the people he meets could have stepped out of a mystery novel. Fans of Agatha Christie will delight in Eames' descriptions of the places and events that appeared in and influenced her fiction - and armchair travelers will thrill in the exotica of the journey itself.
