    Death in a Desert Land reader ¸ ebook Death in a Desert LandNot having heard of the bestselling author Andrew Wilson before or reading any of his atmospheric murder mysteries featuring ‘Agatha Christie’ I was most intrigued to read his latest Agatha story “Death in a Desert Land” In true Christie form Wilson has written a first rate novel that you’d be hard pushed to realise hadn’t actually been written by the golden age ueen of detective fiction herself For me every character was excellently portrayed and had a typical persona of the 1920’s and each had a perfect role to play in the plot itself I was interested t

    Death in a Desert Land reader ¸ ebook Death in a Desert LandThe combination of Agatha Christie archaeology ancient civilizations and the Middle East is irresistable to me so my perspective on this book may be skewed But Death in a Desert Land was the perfect summer afternoon read on my front terrace and I recommend it for the following reasonsFirst Wilson gets the tone right; I felt as if I were reading a Christie novel Second he also gets the desert right; I'll be back again in the Middle East this fall and can't wait to be surrounded by sand climbing in and out of archaeological sites Lastly the book reminds me of the Amelia Peabody series by Elizabeth Peters; I miss that late author a lot and the dig superintendent in Death in a Desert Land could be a twin to the super in the Peabody mysteries My one complaint is that I suspected the villian at the 30 percent mark But th

    Death in a Desert Land reader ¸ ebook Death in a Desert LandI would venture to say that most people have heard of the great mystery writer Agatha Christie She’s written so many classic mysteries and I would be hard pressed to meet someone who hasn’t heard of at least one of her books in one way or anotherBecause she is so recognizable and such a classic mystery writer I was thrilled to see that someone had turned her into her own fictional sleuth My first thought when I saw that someone had done this was that it sounded hokey Agatha Christie is such an icon and to mess with that and turn her into a fictionalized detective sounded tritebut at the same time I was also here for itEspecially when I read the description It sounded like Agatha Christie was going to be kind of a female Indiana Jones—at least in this book—who solves crime And to be honest I did
