Overview

Nurse Amy Leatheran had never felt the lure of the 'mysterious East,' but she nonetheless accepts an assignment at Hassanieh, an ancient site deep in the Iraqi desert, to care for the wife of a celebrated archaeologist. Mrs Leidner is suffering bizarre visions and nervous terror. '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.

Murder in Mesopotamia 4.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 34 reviews.

A very excellent and unique whodunit set on a archeological site in the Middle East during the 1930's. The victim-a beautiful American woman with many secrets, a group of suspicious and unique suspects who may or may not have a motive for murder, a tragic second killing, and a surprising solution regarding how it was done, by whom, and why. Poirot solves the case with unsurpassing meticulousness and cleverness.

Murder in Mesopotamia, by Agatha Christie, is about a murder while on an archeological dig. Overall, this book deserves an eight out of ten. Though I thought the plot was the same as some of the Agatha Christie books I have read. There was a main murder, but also some other person or group doing something against the law. I liked the way that the murder was written from a nurse¿s point of view. Doing so really let readers know about the medical conditions of some of the key characters. She could tell you how long someone had been dead, and what kind of instrument was used to deliver the final blow. One of the things that I did like about the book is the way the murder was committed. The killer did a great job of covering up how he/she (I won¿t say!) did it. I also enjoyed how many different objects came into play when figuring out how the person was killed. I would recommend this book to anyone who has read a mystery novel, as it is a great collection to the many novels I have read.
