A Great Spy Story
on 10 November 2014
Having just visited the Isokon (Lawn Road Flats, Hampstead) it was interesting to read this unusual Agatha Christie novel about spies, written whilst she was living at the Isokon during WWII. A great who-dunnit set during the early years of WWII but with a twist as it doesn't deal with the usual murder & suspects but with who is the spy.
There is some thought that Agatha Christie may have picked up some ideas for the novel whilst living at the Isokon as it was also the home af a number of spies during that time, including Kim Philby. Who knows what snatches of conversation she picked up whilst dining in the resident's restaurant!?
