3.0 out of 5 stars Agatha Christie - Passenger to Frankfurt | Review, 16 Sept. 2013
This review is from: Passenger to Frankfurt (Agatha Christie Collection) (Hardcover)
This is different - this is no crime novel, it's a tale of espionage in a much darker vein than many of Christie's earlier work. As her 80th book, written at the age of 80, it shows a different side of Christie that not as many people know about.

Unfortunately, it's not the most memorable of Christie's novels, and while I've read worse, I haven't read much worse from her. Passenger to Frankfurt is mediocre at best, worth a read if you can't get enough of Christie but otherwise now really worth your time.

Instead, I suggest investigating some of her better books - Poirot in particular appears in most of her greatest works. I recommend Death On the Nile or And Then There Were None. I've got nothing against it as a rule, I was just disappointed after reading it, and I'm not one to be disappointed easily.

If you do decide to proceed, proceed with caution - this is Christie as you might not have seen her before, so set your expectations accordingly.
