Volume 43 in the Agatha Christie Collection (1945) Limited edition of 800 copies worldwide It is Egypt, 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 she deserved to die like a snake. Yet Renisenb, the priest's daughter, believes that the woman's death was not fate, but murder. Increasingly, she becomes convinced that the source of evil lurks within her own father's household.

Pierre Bismuth's tackles the challenges of contemporary art by addressing the representation and the reception of a work of art ; by playing on the modalities and power of language and image ; and by reappropriating art history and modern cultural references, from fashion to cinema. In doing so, he incorporates all artistic mediums available, from origami and collage to screenwriting and art installations. Bismuth has exhibited his works extensively throughout Europe and North America. He earned an academy award in 2005 for co-authoring the screenplay Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Born in 1963, Pierre Bismuth lives and works in Brussels.

The most popular mystery writer of all time concocted a rich recipe of intrigue, character, and setting. All of Agatha Christie’s 66 detective novels are covered here in great detail. Each chapter begins with general comments on a novel’s geographical and historical setting, identifying current events, fashions, fads and popular interests that relate to the story. A concise plot summary and comprehensive character listing follow, and each novel is discussed within Christie’s overall body of work, with an emphasis on the development of themes, narrative technique, and characters over the course of her prolific career. An appendix translates Poirot’s French and defines the British idiomatic words and phrases that give Christie’s novels so much of their flavor.


That is the tale - a parable , full of religious connotations . Life is martyrdom , the
tale seems to say ; it is one long act of suffering , and nothing we can do will help
us avoid pain and sorrow . Only death comes as a friend at the end of it all .
