This unique Christie tale is sure to please every mystery lover! While touring Jerusalem, an international group of travelers, including a young English doctor, her French colleague, a debonair American, and the belligerent British Lady Westholme are joined by the domineering American Mrs. Boynton and her four introverted stepchildren. On a sightseeing tour to the desert, one of the travelers is murdered and one is a murderer. All are suspects, but even the best amateur sleuth will never foresee the surprise twist ending.
