Agatha Christie – Death Comes As the End

 

This novel is a little bit different, in that it’s a murder novel set in Ancient Egypt, in a period in history that Christie was passionately interested in because of her archaeologist husband and her own forays in the field. And, similarly to such classics as And Then There Were None, there’s a lot of death to keep you turning the pages, once you get past the initial, tedious introduction.

Unfortunately, it’s just not on the same level as some of her other work. Sure, it’s well-written and well-researched, and the climax at the end is the highlight of what’s otherwise a fairly standard effort, but I just felt that it paled in to comparison to all of the other Agatha Christie work that I’ve read, including her pseudonymous romance novels. It’s a shame really.
