‘It is not an impossible story – it is only a fantastic one.’ AGATHA CHRISTIE--This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
When a bored diplomat is approached in a black airport by a woman whose life is in danger, his interest is aroused. In a moment of weakness, he agrees to lend her his passport and boarding ticket.
Suddenly, Stafford Nye’s own life is on the line. For he has unwittingly entered a web of international intrigue, from which the only escape is to outwit the Countess von Waldsausen – a power-crazed spider, hell-bent on world domination.
Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. She wrote 80 crime mysteries and collections, and saw her work translated into more languages than Shakespeare. Her enduring success, enhanced by many film and TV adaptations, is a tribute to the timeless appeal of her characters and the unequalled ingenuity of her plots.
