This is probably more like 3.5 stars because I was expecting more clues and detecting, and what I got was more character based drama and introspection, with a side order of body count and murder. Ms. Christie is very very good at making the characters in her mysteries into three-dimensional people, but Renusenb was a bit too naive for my tastes. This was still a very enjoyable read. The audiobook was great as well. Narrated by Emilia Fox, who you probably know from Merlin (or maybe you don't . . . does anyone actually watch that show?). Anyway, not the book's fault I had expectations, and still think it's super neat that she set a mystery in Ancient Egypt.
