Book Review: Death Comes As The End, by Agatha Christie

Just when I was thinking an author cannot surprise me more, this book comes along. Quaint English villages weren’t enough for murder mysteries, perhaps, so Dame Agatha Christie goes a step further with this… a crime fiction in ancient Egypt.

As such, this is the first Hercule Poirot novel that’s not written by Christie that I am reading.

But Christie also has given the world some other wonderful detectives. Miss Jane Marple is another. This book is the first Miss Marple mystery.
