Description

In Death Comes As the End, Dame Agatha Christie transports us back to ancient Egypt 2000 B.C. where a priest’s daughter, investigating a suspicious death, uncovers an asp’s nest of jealousy, betrayal, and serial murder.

It is Egypt in 2000 BC, where death gives meaning to life. At the foot of a cliff lies the broken, twisted body of Nofret, concubine to a ka-priest. Young, beautiful, and venomous, most agree that it was fate—she deserved to die like a snake!

But at her father's house on the banks of the Nile, the priest's daughter Renisenb believes that the woman's death is suspicious. Increasingly, she becomes convinced that the source of evil lurks within their household—and watches helplessly as the family's passions explode in murder. . . .

Customer Reviews

I come back to this story again and again.

I always remember the paperback caption about this book: The most unusual story ever told by the reigning Queen of Mystery. It is.

Love Christie

I enjoyed this book. It is set in ancient Egypt. I had a strong sense of Egyptian life at that time. The reflections of the women and men of the family gave it a nice atmosphere for the criminal mind to foment murder. A thoroughly good read for anytime.
