In Death Comes As the End, Dame Agatha Christie transports us back to ancient Egypt 2000 B.C. where a priest's daughter, investigating a suspicious death, uncovers an asp's nest of jealousy, betrayal, and serial murder.

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. . . .

This is my favorite Agatha Christie audiobook. So unique!

I had vaguely recollected reading this book as a kid and remembered it as a 5 star read. While I still thought it was a great story it wasn't all I thought it was.
The biggest detraction for me was our heroine, she was highly naive and gullible which annoyed me a fair bit.

This is my least favorite Agatha Christie book I have read/listened to so far. It takes place in Egyptian times and is difficult to relate to. I do like the story and the twist, but the setting was difficult at times to follow.
