Summary


When a number of leading scientists disappear without a trace, concern grows within the international intelligence community. Are they being kidnapped? Blackmailed? Brainwashed?
One woman appears to have the key to the mystery. Unfortunately, Olive Betteron now lies in a hospital bed, dying from injuries sustained in a Moroccan plane crash.
Meanwhile, in a Casablanca hotel room, Hilary Craven prepares to take her own life. But her suicide attempt is about to be interrupted by a man who will offer her an altogether more thrilling way to die.

Agatha Christie just got better!

Have been an Agatha Christie fan from a very young age reading her books time & time again, but due to eye problems I listened to several of my favourite A.Christie books through Audible read by Emelia Fox...she has put life & dare I say even more enjoyment into them all once again!
Keep it up Audible & Emelia....
