    DEATH COMES AS THE END

    In this startling historical mystery, unique in the author's canon, Agatha Christie investigates a deadly mystery at the heart of a dissonant family in ancient Egypt. Imhotep, wealthy landowner and priest of Thebes, has outraged his sons and daughters by bringing a beautiful concubine into their fold. And the manipulative Nofret has already set about a plan to usurp her rivals' rightful legacies. When her lifeless body is discovered at the foot of a cliff, Imhotep's own flesh and blood become the apparent conspirators in her shocking murder. But vengeance and greed may not be the only motives...



    Reader Reviews
    Christie with an Egyptian twist, June 9, 2003 Reviewer: lisa bahrami from orlando, fl USA Although several of Agatha Christie's mysteries were set in the Middle East, this is the only one set in ancient times. Although historical mysteries were very unusual for Christie, she shows that she could have been a master of the genre if she had tried. Set in ancient Egypt, the characters in this book are so well-drawn and realistic that they practically spring off the page. I would not recommend this book to a Christie novice because I think you really have to have a fine appreciation of the Christie genius to fully appreciate Death Comes as the End.Overall,this is an excellent book that makes me wish Christie had written more of its kind.
