Publisher's Summary

Baghdad is the chosen location for a secret summit of superpowers, concerned but not convinced, about the development of an, as yet, unidentified and undescribed secret weapon. Only one man has the proof that can confirm the nature of this fantastic secret weapon, a British agent named Carmichael. Unfortunately the criminal organisation responsible for the weapon's development will stop at nothing to prevent him entering Baghdad and presenting his proof to the assembled delegates. Can Carmichael enter the city against such odds? Into this explosive situations appears Victoria Jones, a girl with a yearning for adventure who gets more than she bargains for when a wounded Carmichael dies in her arms in her hotel room. Now, if only she could make sense of his last words "...Lucifer...Basrah...Lefarge..."

Fun story and easy to listen to

This is one of Agatha Christie's adventure stories, so if you're looking for her traditional "whodunnit?" this won't be it, but it is still a lot of fun and surpassed my expectations.

Emilia Fox's performance was excellent. I only gave her four stars because her male voices don't sound like real men! haha, but this is an issue with almost all narrators performing voices of the opposite sex.
