      Death Comes as the End by Agatha Christie is, so far as I can tell, her only historical fiction novel. It is set in Ancient Egypt and follows the events that occur in one family who are dealing with the fact that their father has just brought home a concubine. Anger is flared

      and deaths begin.

      Although this novel does not build the suspense of some of Agatha Christie’s other novels, like And Then There Were None, there is suspense, mystery, and a lot of insight into human behaviour. You really don’t know who does it until quite close to the end, and some of the deaths ...


      • are a bit surprising.

        The author moves perspective from character to character quite well, and has characters know things without the reading finding out unless they figure it out themselves from the information given. The writing flows smoothly and well. Each character has their own personality, and different aspects of their personality become more

        obvious under the stress of the situation - it all seems very natural and realistic. Everyone becomes a suspect for different reasons.

        This is definitely a very satisfying book to read, and one where you want to read all the way through to the end to find out what is happening and ‘whodunnit’.
