Death Comes As the End | [Agatha Christie]

Death Comes As the End

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Ancient Egypt and a murder mystery love it"

    This has always been one of my all time favourite agatha Christie novels. Based in ancient Egypt it focuses on a family who begin to unravel and their true natures take over with a rising body count!

    Emilia Fox narrates beautifully and brings each of the characters to life very well. For all agatha Christie lovers this is a must book!

    "A rather unusal Christie whodunit"

    I have to admit to a bias here: this is my favourite Christie novel but putting that aside - if you like murder then you have to have this in your collection. Its a wonderfully atomspheric tale that grips and absorbs you all the way through. It is brilliantly performed by Emilia Fox who is a joy to listen to. Download and enjoy!
