Sadly, this did not meet my expectations. :( I was actually pretty disappointed. I was a little amused at how "Legends of the Fall" it was with almost everyone dying, it did have some good lines in it, the psychological exploration was fascinating, and I was at least happy that Renisenb ended up with who I wanted her to be with, but I had hoped this would have the magic and atmosphere that other Christie books have, especially considering the historical setting. It did not. I don't know what it was about this one, it almost felt like it wasn't written by Christie somehow? Not a bad book by any means and certainly worth reading, but it did drag in some areas and it did not live up to the expectations I have with Christie books. ( )

Typical Christie mystery with several deaths and someone who puts it all together at the end. ( )

In which the members of an Ancient Egyptian household begin to die…

"Death Comes as the End" is one of my favourites, but as I begin to ask myself why, I have to admit to the book’s failings as well. The book was one of my favourites when I was young – with its focus on Ancient Egypt (a favourite era of both myself and Dame Agatha), how could I not love it? It was a daring challenge that Christie set herself, to tackle a mystery so far outside of her own time, and it’s a bit sad that she never tried something like it again.

The family of Imhotep is large, leading to a sizable suspect base. On the other hand, they die off quicker than even a seasoned Christie fan will believe! Christie renders this land believable, and has great fun utilising motives, beliefs and characterisations that simply wouldn’t be legitimate in a drawing room in St. Mary Mead.

Some reviews have claimed that this is basically a drawing room mystery, and that the characters have effectively been transported straight out of 1930s London. While I don’t entirely agree, I can understand these claims: the internecine arguments amongst the family do remind you of a contemporary Christie work, as the author chooses to focus on household and quotidian routines rather than politics or the larger culture of the age. Personally, the mystery fascinates me, with its two-faced characters and noble heroine, amidst the ravishing setting of Egypt at its height.

At the end of the day, "Death Comes" as the End is either my Christie guilty pleasure, or a quality novel which allowed Christie to challenge herself, while also leaving her free to write characters with motives and reasonings that could ignore the usual moral codes her characters had to operate within.

After becoming a widow, Renisenb returns to her father's house with her young son to live out her days. The relationships of her brothers and their wives becomes even more complicated when her father introduces his very young concubine into the household, especially since she is unlikeable to everyone. Murder causes Renisenb to question the motivations of everyone in the household. ( )

TO PROFESSOR S. R. K. GLANVILLE

Dear Stephen,

It was you who originally suggested to me the idea of a detective story set in Ancient Egypt, and but for your active help and encouragement this book would never have been written.

I want to say here how much I have enjoyed all the interesting literature you have lent me and to thank you once more for the patience with which you have answered my questions and for the time and trouble you have expended. The pleasure and interest which the writing of the book have brought to me you already know.

Your affectionate and grateful friend,

Agatha Christie
