First edition of the first historical detective novel.

A murder mystery set in the Ancient Egypt of 2000 BC - Christie was inspired by her trips to the Middle East with her husband the famed archeologist Sir Max Mallowan.

The plot unwinds in ancient Thebes, in the home of Imhotep, an Egyptian mortuary priest and in true Christie fashion people start dropping like flies, but who is the killer?

First edition, first impression. A near fine example both inside and out with just a trace of wear to the spine and minor darkening to spine of the dust jacket. A lovely example of an intriguing Agatha Christie title.

Published by Collins for The Crime Club, London, 1945.
