LoveReading View on Death on the Nile

One of Sister Wendy Beckett's favourite books.

The wonderful Hercule Poirot works his magic in this murder mystery set in the exotic location of Egypt.

 

July 2010 Guest Editor Louise Candlish on Agatha Christie...

Death on the Nile Synopsis

Agatha Christie's most exotic murder mystery, reissued with a striking new cover designed to appeal to the latest generation of Agatha Christie fans and book lovers. 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!
