9780006163732: Death Comes As the End (The Christie Collection)

It is Egypt, 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 she deserved to die like a snake. Yet Renisenb, the priest's daughter, believes that the woman's death was not fate, but murder. Increasingly, she becomes convinced that the source of evil lurks within her own father's household. As the wife of an eminent archaeologist, Agatha Christie took part in several expeditions to the Middle East. Drawing upon this experience and exhaustive research, she wrote this serial killer mystery laid in Egypt 4000 years ago.

Review:

'A decided novelty - startling in all directions' New York Herald Tribune 'Besides giving us a mystery story quite up to her own high standards, Agatha Christie has succeeded admirably in picturing the people of ancient Egypt as living persons and not as resurrected mummies' New York Times

Book Description:

However not all the members of his family welcome her and when she is found dead it is Imhotep’s daughter Renisenb who suspects it might not have been an accident.

This death unleashes the greed and hate that have been building up within the family and the horrific events that follow tear it apart. With few allies she can confide in, even Renisenb has to constantly look over her shoulder.
