A really enjoyable mystery, with a truly detestable victim. Full of Agatha Christie's usual fun, vivid characterizations all taking place in a truly fantastic locale - I've been dying to go to Petra since I read it.
I enjoyed reading this one! I never once guessed who really did it! I love when I am kept guessing until the very end!
