The tranquillity of a cruise along the Nile was shattered by the discovery that Linnet Ridgeway had been shot through the head. She was young, stylish and beautiful. A girl who had everything . . . until she lost her life.
Hercule Poirot recalled 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 was ever quite what it seemed.
Agatha Christie is the most widely published author of all time, outsold only by the Bible and Shakespeare. Her books have sold more than a billion copies in English and another billion in a hundred foreign languages. She died in 1976.
“Must be read twice, once for enjoyment and once to see how the wheels go round.”
“The main alibi is of the first brilliance … the descriptive work hits, as it were, the Nile on the head.”
“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.”
