    " I really enjoyed this book. I don't know why there's so many bad reviews for it, it was really good "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ms.P | 2/9/2011

    " One of her better spy novels. It involves espionage, scientists defecting, the Iron Curtain, and lots of travel! (of course it does, that's in the title!)
    I love the depictions of how travel used to be, and how easy it was for a person to just disappear. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 BookRambler | 1/8/2011

    " A favourite book. Not a 'proper' Christie-like detective but a mystery all the same. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbora | 12/15/2010

    " This book is so different. I liked it. But it can be more elaborate. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linnea | 11/30/2010

    " I've always rather enjoyed Christie's odd ventures off into spy novel scenarios, although they are not as consistent as her classic village mysteries. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diva | 8/21/2010

    " i really loved this book, it give you a sort of 1984 feel , in an Agatha Cristy way. you've got to figure that out your self :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beka | 7/23/2010

    " A really twisted puzzle with lots of twists and turns. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 6/4/2010

    " This is exactly the type of mystery plot that Hollywood would make into a movie: espionage, international connections, money, intrigue. Hollywood would just make the ending more dramatic. Great summer read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cynthia | 5/17/2010

    " Typical Christie, which for me is wonderful. I had a great time and did not figure this one out very early. As always, the characters drive the stories and this one had a good set-up that kept you interested. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sana | 5/9/2010

    " A dull and somewhat predictable spy novel. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Caitlin | 3/12/2010

    " I love Agatha Christie, but she should really stick to her cozy mysteries. I have read a couple of her attempts at international espionage and not only are they rather dull, she uses deus ex machina to tie things up in the end. Most unsatisfying. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dot | 3/12/2010

    " I usually like Agatha Christie but this one was not one of her best..in fact I didn't finish it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 3/9/2010

    " Another good Agatha Christie mystery. There were some confusing parts to it where I had trouble keeping the characters straight but it all made sense in the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ed | 2/3/2010

    " An international "the world's at stake" spy thriller. The main character takes on the identity of a dead woman in order to track down missing scientists. // Not quite my thing. The beginnig seemed a bit slow and the end was abrupt. There was some engaging story in the middle though. "
