About This Item

London: Penguin, 1953. First paperback edition, first printing. Published by Penguin in London, 1953. This is a very good copy. The soft cover has some slight toning to the edges and some very slight curling at the corners. The original two shillings price is present on the bottom right-hand corner. The text blocks are markedly clean for post-war paper stock and are free from foxing. The internals are equally clean and not toned; it is free from previous owners ink. Overall, this is a very good copy. The first paperback edition of the classic work, originally published in 1945.


It is 2000 BC in Egypt and Imhotep the Ka-Priest brings home his beautiful young concubine Nofret. But not all the members of his family welcome her. When she is found dead Imhotep's daughter, Renisenb, suspects it might not have been an accident. The death unleashes the greed and hate that have been building up within the family and the horrific events that follow tear it apart.This is Christie's only book with a historical setting. The idea of setting a murder mystery novel in Egypt was suggested to her by Stephen Glanville a noted Egyptologist and close personal friend and colleague of Christie's husband Max Mallowan.
