Finally after reading a lot of excellent Agatha Christie novels I found her very worst one.

Passenger to Frankfurt is a global-scale-thriller-spy-drama written not long after the 1968 uprisings and demonstrations. The only thing I get out of this novel, which is full of completely ridiculous ideas, is that the author was scared of what was happening around her.

The story has no cohesion, no clever turns, no interesting and believable characters, no probable development...

Do not read this book. There are hundreds of thousands of better books, and the worst thing, if you read this you might get put off Agatha Christie forever and that would be a bad thing. ( )

"Where are you going?"
"I was going to Geneva. "
"Well, I expect you'll get there in the end."
"I have to get there now. If I can get to Geneva, it will be all right. There is someone who will meet me there. I can be safe."

Not a favorite Christie book although I liked the beginning.

I’ve read almost all of Agatha Chrisie’s mysteries and a couple of her books written under the pen name Westmacott. This particular book seems to bridge between her mysteries and her Westmacott series. There are some of the elements of her mysteries but there is also the verbosity and elements of the Westmacott books, as far as the focus on the characters and what they are about.

Sir Stafford Nye is a member of the diplomatic corp. On his way home from Malaya he is sitting out a weather delay at Frankfurt Airport. A woman approaches him with a proposition, which he accepts. The results of his actions could jeopardize his professional reputation, which seems to be questionable as is.

After arriving home, he makes an effort to reconnect and does, with the woman, which leads him into connecting with people who believe they are in contact with Hitler’s son, during this past WWII time. These people believe that the son of Hitler is alive and on the move to pick up where Hitler left off.

This is more of an espionage that a mystery. For me it wasn’t one of her best. The long meetings and dialogues make it a bit dull, along with the number of characters. I’ve read other of her books and enjoyed them much more. ( )

Surprisingly relevant.

Reading it, I found myself thinking of America today and the parallels to the time leading up to WW2 ( )

A minor diplomat's flight is re-directed to the Frankfurt Airport, where he meets a mysterious woman who asks him for his passport and boarding ticket so that she can go in his place on the connecting flight, or else she is at risk of being murdered. He soon finds himself wrapped up in an international intrigue with fatal consequences.

This book starts off interestingly enough with several successions of cat-and-mouse games. It's almost like a 'cozy' spy thriller, if such a thing existed. But then about halfway through, it really starts to go off the rails. We stop seeing our two main leads and spend a lot of time with various stuffy old men in boardrooms conversing on the dangers of the "youth" and what to do about it without ever getting anywhere.

Now, some of those youths are neo-Nazis and should rightly be feared. Others are simply critical of the Vietnam War, for example, or are fighting for racial equality. Still others are in the depths of drug addictions. These seem to all be lumped together as one massive issue across the globe. The book has no real villain and no real focus as a consequence. No wonder that Christie wrote herself into a corner and 'solved' the whole thing by one double agent being unmasked (even though that didn't really solve anything....).

Also, this book really shows its author's age, with several references to one character being "yellow" (i.e., Asian) and one use of the n- word. The only reason I give it two stars is because the first few chapters started out strong; too bad Christie's writing then took a steep downhill plummet. ( )

The Author speaks:
The first question put to an author, personally, or through the post, is:
"Where do you get your ideas from?"
The temptation is great to reply: "I always go to Harrods," or "I get them mostly at the Army & Navy Stores," or, snappily, "Try Marks and Spencer." (introduction)
"Fasten your seat belts, please."
