Really good read! It had me guessing all the way through the end as to how they were going to figure out who did it, and more importantly, why.

Appointment with Death is a very interesting mystery story and I thought it was quite enjoyable. The book started out slowly and was confusing, but towards the middle, it picked up and really became a page-turner. The book is a bit hard to understand, but I recommend it if you like complicated mysteries with unexpected endings. Mrs. Boynton. A large, Buddha resembling women, that was mentally controlling her family. She had decided that she and her family should go on a trip to Petra, where they where surrounded by towering red cliffs. These where the last things Mrs. Boynton ever saw. Somehow, she had died. With only 24 hours to solve this case, and the only evidence being a tiny puncture mark on her arm, it's up to you to find out how Mrs. Boynton suddenly died. Other Agatha Christie books are also excellent, and they are all very good reads. The beginning of this book really gives you a sense of foreshadowing, and that the story was slowly coming to its climax, then boom! One of the main characters dies. "You see, don't you, that she's got to be killed?" Beside the fact that it was a bit hard to understand, I really enjoyed this novel. But who killed Mrs. Boynton, its up to you to find out.
