Read Murder in Mesopotamia. Five stars. I enjoy the Poirot mysteries with non Hastings narrators. I did not figure this one out and the ending caught me off guard. Really good!
Love Agatha Christie! This book was fun because it had three stories to read, one right after the next. Totally got my Christie fix :)
My copy of They Came to Bagdad is in a collection "Murderers Abroad" that includes Mystery of the Blue Train, Murder in Mesopotamia, They Came to Bagdad, So Many Steps to Death and Passenger to Frankfurt. I read this because it was next in my reading Agatha Christie books in order. I hadn't read it before that I remembered and if you aren't reading them all, don't bother.

I do adore the t.v. Poirot series and haven't missed a one BUT read Agatha's originals. You'll be surprised how different the plots run. A bonus since you get two versions to enjoy.

A collection of three of Agatha Christie's "overseas" stories: The well-known "Murder on the Orient Express," "Murder in Mesopotamia" and "They Came to Baghdad."You may read my detailed reviews of "Orient" and "Bagdad" on their individual titles.

"Baghdad" is one of Christie's adventure/spy novels and is a good, fun read; although, I do wonder if another "whodunit" would have been better suited to this
Only read Murder on the Orient Express.
