9780007234448: Murder in Mesopotamia (Poirot)

A facsimile first edition hardback of the famous Poirot book, with a strange death in the desert.

When Amy Leatheran travels to an ancient site in the Iraqi desert to nurse the wife of a celebrated archaeologist, events prove stranger than she has ever imagined. Her patient’s bizarre visions and nervous terror seem unfounded, but as the oppressive tension in the air thickens, events come to a terrible climax – in murder.

With one spot of blood as his only clue, Hercule Poirot must embark on a journey across the desert to unravel a mystery which taxes even his remarkable powers…

To mark the 80th anniversary of Hercule Poirot's first appearance, and to celebrate his renewed fortunes as a primetime television star, this title in a collection of facsimile first editions is the perfect way to experience Agatha Christie. Reproducing the original typesetting and format of the first edition from the Christie family's own archive, this book sports the original cover which has been painstakingly restored to its original glory.

Review:

"Smooth, highly original and completely absorbing" New York Times

Book Description:

When nurse Amy Leatheran agrees to look after 'Lovely Louise', wife of celebrated archaeologist Dr Leidner, at a dig near Hassanieh she finds herself taking on more than just nursing duties - she also has to help solve murders. Shortly after Louise confides in Amy that she has received anonymous letters and is afraid of being murdered she is found clubbed to death.

Fortunately for Amy, Hercule Poirot is visiting the excavation site, but will the great detective be in time to prevent a multiple murderer from striking again?
