They Came to Baghdad

They Came to Baghdad - Agatha Christie One of Christie's more successful spy stories. Published not long after World War II, shades of Hitler's ideas hang over the story, and the plot again involves a young woman becoming entangled in espionage. Victoria Jones is a not very good typist, but an excellent liar, and she's definitely an active go-getter: determining her goals and acting. The question of her level of intelligence is inconsistent, but I think it's best considered that she has been held back somewhat by a lack of a good education.Quite a few coincidences involved, but an enjoyable story.
