Synopsis

Collins brings the Queen of Crime, Agatha Christie, to English language learners.

Agatha Christie is the most widely published author of all time and in any language. Now Collins has adapted her famous detective novels for English language learners. These carefully adapted versions are shorter with the language targeted at upper-intermediate learners (CEF level B2).

Each reader includes:

  • Audio with a reading of the adapted story
  • Helpful notes on characters
  • Cultural and historical notes relevant to the plot
  • A glossary of the more difficult words

Victoria Jones is a young English woman who is looking for love. She follows her new love interest to Baghdad, but she has no idea what adventure is waiting for her there.

A very important international meeting is planned in Baghdad, but a secret organisation wants to sabotage it. Meanwhile, when a man dies in Victoria's hotel room, he whispers three words to her: '… Lucifer … Basrah … Lefarge …' What do these words mean? And what does it have to do with the meeting?
