Crime sleuth Hercule Poirot returns in a thrilling BBC Radio 4 dramatisation.

Amy Leatheran has never felt the lure of the mysterious East, but when she travels to an ancient site deep in the Iraqi desert to nurse the wife of a celebrated archaeologist; events prove stranger than she could ever have imagined.

    " One of my favourite of Agatha's mysteries. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kidsbookworm | 2/19/2014

    " Great! Didn't see that coming .... ! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pam | 2/16/2014

    " It was a little scary reading this murder mystery right before falling asleep every night but surprisingly, I didn't have any bad dreams from it. I figured it out right before the author revealed the murderer, almost at the very end. It was interesting learning the minds and motivations of people. Only 260 pages. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Raully | 2/5/2014

    " Christie's writing is beginning to get a bit formulaic - but what a formula "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 1/23/2014

    " A great Christie mystery set overseas. A woman is murdered and it takes Poirot all his smarts to figure it out. Surprising answer to the problem. Well worth the read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fitria Mayrani | 1/22/2014

    " Cerita-cerita detektif selalu bikin penasaran. Gak pernah ketebak, tau-tau "Kok si anu ya pelakunya padahal dia sayang banget sama si ani", "Kok bisa sih padahal dia kan orang baik?" bla bla bla bla... Dan saya juga kaget ternyata yang membunuh Mrs. Leidner adalah orang yang paling dekat dengannya. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gail | 1/20/2014

    " I finished 3 Agatha Christie books this week! I'm so glad I re-read this one; the other two were new to me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike Manley | 1/20/2014

    " This book was okay. Not the best in my opinion. Mainly because I didn't care for the fact that a lot of the narration is coming from a character who also is a suspect in the book. It has a long intro basically until Poirot actually makes a presence in the book. In the end there are several twists in this book that kind of make up for the long beginning. Overall it is a good book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela Stull | 1/19/2014

    " love all agatha christie. but hercule poirot is my fav detective. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna | 1/17/2014

    " I am a huge fan of Agatha Christie's books and this was the book that started, what some might define as, a minor addiction to the works of Christie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alex Mendonça | 12/14/2013

    " I loved the nurse's narration, so gentle. The solution to the crime was a bit hard believe and take in, though... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rick Rapp | 11/10/2013

    " I do enjoy her exotic settings and her quirky little hero. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alanna | 4/30/2013

    " I love a good murder mystery on a cold winter night and Agatha Christie NEVER leaves me disappointed! This one had it all-- interesting location (an archeological dig), lots of suspects with interesting motives, and it left me with no idea who the murderer was until Hercule Poirot revealed all! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanne | 2/26/2013

    " Surprise, surprise! This book was written in the first person, which was fun to know what the character in the story was thinking at the time. I loved being able to refer to the floor plan of the building with each person's room labeled. It made the story a little easier to follow. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adam | 11/5/2012

    " I like Poirot mysteries. This was the only one they had over there. Lucky me, it was a good one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Beth | 10/18/2012

    " Despite the wonderful twists I just could not stand the narrator (Amy Leatheran). She was just such a miserable human being that she tainted the entire story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 eyupcan | 10/17/2012

    " I turned the pages unpatiently.it s got wist and thrill.its puzzle draws you.thanks to bbc7.after having listened to this especially its wonderful music I decided to read.christie had made journey east.iraq turkey and syria. during her journeys she must have set characters and the plot "

    " good book... But not upto agatha christie standards "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abby | 8/13/2012

    " I didn't care for this complex killing case. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gemma Fasheun | 7/26/2012

    " Just too much supposed murderers when Poirot should tell straight who did the murders. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beka | 12/26/2011

    " One of the more interesting and hard to figure out stories. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura Linehan | 9/1/2011

    " Great romp, well written excellent escapism. is it wong that i see poirot as david suchet and hear his voice as I read? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon | 8/13/2011

    " Fun read; I finished it during a long flight, enjoying the well developed circle of people, their intricacies and intimacies, in Christie's Middle Eastern mystery. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nate D | 6/24/2011

    " Pretty middle-of-the-road Agatha Christie, with a completely unforseeable solution, if I recall (which I do, though only vaguely). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barclay | 6/7/2011

    " Listened in the car with Arden and Meade. We all enjoyed it and will tackle some more Agatha Christie together.

    update: Meade could not sleep last night...she was fearful of faces in the window, etc. Arden graciously let Meade sleep in her bed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carlajo | 6/4/2011

    " The very first Agatha I've read, and I loved it. I think its more Poirot than just Agatha. I am not enjoying M or N? as much.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 ???? | 5/26/2011

    " Really liked this one, and for the whole book I was guessing Dr Leidner and I was right! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 William | 5/2/2011

    " My second ever Christie novel and like the first one I read (4:50 From Paddington) it just is impossible to put down, you just need to keep reading. It keeps you guessing right until the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 4/26/2011

    " I love Poirot and I love these old-fashioned mysteries. Christie is obviously a master of the genre. "

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

    " This was a really fun Christie. The ending definitely surprised me! I listened to it with Anna Massey as the reader, and she did a fabulous job. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rubal | 2/18/2011

    " I love Agatha Christie but this was her only book, out of the ones that I have read, which I didn't like. It was boring. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 2/13/2011

    " Of all the Agatha Christie novels to pick to read on Valentine's Day I choose the one where the husband does it!

    It was interesting to read a Christie novel set outside the UK, and sadly I failed again to solve the crime. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zach | 2/3/2011

    " There are several mysteries for Hercule Poirot to solve in this novel. The ending is a little far-fetched, but it is nevertheless satisfying. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alanna | 2/1/2011
