Summary

1928. Agatha Christie leaves England for Baghdad, where two years ago, explorer and writer Gertrude Bell died from a drugs overdose. The authorities believed that Bell had taken her own life, but a letter now unearthed reveals she was afraid someone wanted to kill her. Bell writes that if she were to die, the best place to look for her murderer would be Ur, an archaeological site in Mesopotamia. Looking into Bell's death, Agatha discovers the mission is not without risk. She must use all her skills to try to outwit a killer who hides among the desert sands....

Sound quality not always there

I sometimes struggled to hear this, which was a great shame, as I thoroughly enjoyed the story. Sometimes the narrator was just too quiet, even with the volume turned up - and I’m speaking as someone with no hearing issues at all!

Loved this

I loved this book, the story, the way in which it was written and performed, Joan Walker is an excellent narrator.
I loved the fact that this twists real fact and fiction into it’s pages and if you are a regular Christie reader, you will sniff plots from different novels showing up from time to time.
I have read all thee Wilson books and this is battling for the position of favourite one.
You will love this if you are a Christie fan and even if you are not, it is still a great story.
Go for it, i dare you! 😆
