Each reader includes: • A CD 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?
