"I'm afraid of being killed!" she admits to her nurse. Her terror, unfortunately, is anything but unfounded, and Nurse Leatheran is soon enough without a patient.
The world's greatest detective happens to be in the vicinity, however: having concluded an assignment in Syria, and curious about the dig at Hassanieh, Hercule Poirot arrives in time to lead a murder investigation that will tax even his remarkable powers - and in a part of the world that has seen more than its share of misadventure and foul play.

A different Hercule Poirot
Interesting setting and a different narrator. Although this is a Hercule Poirot story, he has a secondary role in the story ( although, of course, he solves the murders ). Dame Agatha's interest in archeology is evident and adds authenticity to the story.

intriguing story, though lacking many of the subtle clues of other Christie classics, but the narration was absolutely painfilul. Nurse sounded like an aged spinster, rather than the thirty-something professional woman she was. All the men had gutteral, vaguely Germanic accents and rather froggy voices. The only reason I forged through was for cookies are other stories - and in the veeeery end there was o be. So, yes. Decent boom made barely palatable by horrific narration.
