Other Books by Agatha Christie. They are so used on occasion in this book. The Agricultural calendar of Ancient Egypt, consisting of three seasons of four months of thirty days, formed the background of peasant life, and with the addition of five intercalary days at the end of the year was used as the official calendar of 365 days to the year. This ‘Year’ originally began with the arrival in Egypt of the flood-water of the Nile in the third week of July by our reckoning; but the absence of a Leap Year caused it to lag through the centuries, so that, at the time of our story, the official New Year’s Day fell about six months.
This Agatha Christie mystery stands out, as it is set in ancient Egypt, far away in time and geography from St. Mary . Mary Mead and London. Many of the elements of a classic Christie are here, though: family conflicts, good vs. evil, and of course, murder and mystery! As usual, Christie presents us with a likeable protagonist who finds herself in a scary situation; she's unsure who to trust as events unfold. I've been a fan of Christie's for many years but I'm particularly fond of Death Comes as the End. The ancient world setting makes it unusual but also draws on her knowledge of ancient life gained through her years with Max Mallowan and colleagues.
This is the only Agatha Christie novel set in antiquity. Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow you die. Death Comes as the End is Dame Agatha's only historical mystery and she makes full use of her in-depth knowledge of Ancient Egypt. The setting for this murder mystery novel is ancient Egypt. It is the most haunting of all her works because of the sheer number of people who get killed under mysterious circumstances. Seven people are killed before the murderer is caught. As always the climax is brilliant. The detail of Egyptian artifacts and religious beliefs Dame Agatha weaved into this was delightful and made up for the odd dalliances with annoying love triangles.
