DESTINATION UNKNOWN (THE CHRISTIE COLLECTION) - Agatha Christie Vastly more spy story than mystery, "Destination Unknown" revolves around the disappearance of scientists during the early Cold War era. Have they defected? Will the young wife of one of the scientists lead the government to him?As is typical for many of Christie's spy-oriented story, this one revolves around an innocent passerby, Hilary Craven, who is brought into the story by circumstances.It's a fairly slight book, perhaps more a chance to hold up some of the "brave new world" ideas that may have been going around at the time rather than any single driving plot. So, not bad, but not an urgently compelling read.
