About Death on the Nile
Agatha Christie’s most daring travel mystery.
The tranquillity of a cruise along the Nile is shattered by the discovery that Linnet Ridgeway has been shot through the head. She was young, stylish and beautiful, a girl who had everything – until she lost her life.
Hercule Poirot recalls an earlier outburst by a fellow passenger: ‘I’d like to put my dear little pistol against her head and just press the trigger.’ Yet in this exotic setting’ nothing is ever quite what it seems…
‘The construction is flawless.’ – Daily Mail
‘Must be read twice, once for enjoyment and once to see how the wheels go round.’ – The Times
‘The main alibi is of the first brilliance … the descriptive work hits, as it were, the Nile on the head.’ – Observer
‘A peach of a case for Poirot. I take my hat off to the author for as ingenious an alibi as can well be imagined.’ – Sunday Times
