My Rating: 5 Stars
Another great book by the Queen of Crime and Mystery!
I had problems getting into the story in the beginning and keeping up with all the characters, but after the first chapters it was impossible to put down.
I loved the setting, being a big fan of the ancient Egypt history and mythology. It was the main reason I picked this book in the first place. Agatha Christie shows imagination and very good and deep research that supports the story beautifully. She creates a world with her incredible descriptions and it's definitely a great historical mystery! Furthermore, the reader sees the side of the family drama and the intrigues that mark the powerful families of the time.
All the members of the family are suspects and I didn't have any idea of who could be the murder. Everyone had a motive and the opportunity to commit the crimes. In the final chapters, I was in shock. The twist was so unexpected that I saw everything spinning. The way Christie points out the murder and the reasons, it brings all the events and clues together, leaving no lose-ends. I honestly was not expecting it at all.
Definitely one of the finest books of the Queen of Crime and Mystery!
Hope you find an idea for your next reading here.
