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....

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The Narrator.

Would you be willing to try another book from Agatha Christie? Why or why not?

I have finished 14 already. Loved them all.

Would you be willing to try another one of Anna Massey’s performances?

Absolutely Not.

Was Murder in Mesopotamia worth the listening time?

I barely could finish because of the dreadful narrator.

Any additional comments?

So disappointed. Where was Hugh Fraser?
