Summary

mSir Stafford Nye's journey home from Malaysia to London takes an unexpected twist in the passenger lounge at Frankfurt: a young woman confides in him that someone is trying to kill her. Their paths are to cross again and again, and each time the mystery woman is introduced as a different person. Equally at home in any guise in any society, she draws Sir Stafford into a game of political intrigue more dangerous than he could possibly imagine.
In an arena where no one can be sure of anyone, Nye must do battle with a well-armed, well-financed, well-trained, and invisible enemy.

Not a traditional Agatha Christie

If you are after a traditional Agatha Christie murder mystery then this audiobook is not for you. Passenger to Frankfurt is a thriller that focuses on concepts of youth revolution, and, whilst as well written as all Agatha Christie works are, it does at times get bogged down in expounding theories of international politics. It came across to me more as the personal musings of an 80 year old woman trying to make sense of the 1970s world around her, than as a fast-paced thriller. More theory and concept, than action and adventure. Not a bad book by any means, but just don't expect a cosy Poirot country house murder mystery.

Boring

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

Somebody in need of sleep.

Would you ever listen to anything by Agatha Christie again?

Yes, I have quite a few of her books, both audio, Kindle, and in paperback.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Hugh Fraser?

I love Hugh Fraser, he is almost as good as Ian Carmichael, which is high praise from me.

What character would you cut from Passenger to Frankfurt?

All of them.

Any additional comments?

I gave up at the half way mark, so am asking for a refund.

Boring

One of the most boring books ever: and I normally love Agatha Christie books! I have read most of her books.
