Murder in Mesopotamia - Agatha Christie

Page 83:

 

"Pull yourself together, man!" Said Dr. Reilly quietly. "I know it's a shock, but it's got to be faced! The murderer didn't come from outside - so he must have come from inside. It looks like Mrs. Leidner must have been murdered by a member of your own expedition!"

 

Gasp! Quelle horreur!

 

Page 52:

 

No murder. Yet.

No Poirot. Yet.

 

Narrator is a nurse - Amy Leatherman - who is out in what is now Iraq, at an archeological dig, because the wife of the head archeologist is convinced she is in danger.

 

Who wants to bet she actually is in danger?
