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.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mimy | 6/27/2011

    " A murder mystery set in ancient Egypt. The atmosphere in this book is incredible. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wilde | 6/26/2011

    " Set in Egypt in 2000 BC, this is a classic Agatha Christie (without a hint of Poirot or Miss Marple) thriller. It is full of love, jealousy, intrigue, family betrayal and multiple murders.

    Definitely worth reading.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gretchen | 6/13/2011

    " This book was different in that it took place in Egypt in 2000 B.C. Still the characters were people that one sees in other mystery novels and in life. I enjoyed the plot and characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amgad | 5/31/2011

    " The only ancient style story for Agatha, and yes.It's in Egypt :)
    a surprising end waits for those who read it "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Juanita | 5/27/2011

    " Totally different style for agatha but not at all disappointing, interestingly she lists it as one of her favorites "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 5/14/2011

    " I was expecting a little better Agatha Christie murder mystery, but I'm not discouraged. I will try another one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nurture | 3/29/2011

    " This was a light and enjoyable read. However, it seemed to be populated by a cast of Englishmen who just happened to be living in Ancient Egypt. I feel that it could have been much more interesting if Ms. Christie had made the effort to create more believable characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Saovanee | 3/25/2011

    " ?????????????????????????? ????????????????? ?????-????? ????????? "????????????????" ?????????????? 2527 "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 3/9/2011

    " Classic Christie books - pretty formulaic but gripping all the same. Just persevere with the Egyptian names and places as the story told is universal to all time periods. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brandon | 3/2/2011

    " A book set in ancient Egypt had the potential to be really weird, but this was pulled off pretty well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stefan | 12/12/2010

    " A guilty pleasure. Somewhat obvious mystery towards the end when there are only three or four characters left, but does a very good job at suspense. I read this in middle school, so I'm not sure how I'd like it now; my eighth-grade self gives it four stars. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Manuela | 11/25/2010

    " Interessante e insolito per la Christie, per la sua ambientazione nel lontano passato. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracie | 11/10/2010

    " Different for Agatha Christie - a historical novel, which takes place in ancient Egypt. "
