Nurse Amy Leatheran had never felt the lure of the "mysterious East", but she nonetheless accepts an assignment at Hassanieh, an ancient site deep in the Iraqi desert, to care for the wife of a celebrated archaeologist. Mrs Leidner is suffering bizarre visions and nervous terror. "I'm afraid of being killed!" she admits to her nurse. Her terror, unfortunately, is anything but unfounded, and Nurse Leatheran is soon enough without a patient. The world's greatest detective happens to be in the vicinity, however....

I enjoyed the story throughout and the performance was wonderful… but the ending left me hanging-maybe they want you to go and watch the x files? I felt like it didn't tie up any loose ends. Prepared and it finished with me having 100 questions.

The narrator was wonderful - but the story was not very much like an Agatha Christie story. it was a little more Twisted than I would have expected. All in all a decent book.
