Two terrific subjects ... the surprisingly adventurous life of Agatha Christie and the major hotspots of current world politics * Daily Mail *
Vivid and atmospheric ... Eames has succeeded in the difficult task of closing an entertaining travel narrative with the brutal conclusions of modern history * Independent *
The best travel book of 2004 * Daily Mail *
A thoroughly enjoyable read that combines an Agatha-centric travelogue with a thought-provoking journey through a benighted land * Geographical Magazine *
