Plot

(from HarperCollins "The Agatha Christie Collection" cover)

When a bored diplomat is approached in a black airport by a woman whose life is in danger, his interest is aroused. In a moment of weakness, he agrees to lend her his passport and boarding ticket.

Suddenly, Stafford Nye's own life is on the line. For he has unwittingly entered a web of international intrigue, from which the only escape is to outwit the Countess von Waldsausen - a power-crazed spider, hell-bent on world domination.
