Description

Death on the Nile Agatha Christie’s most exotic murder mystery, reissued with a striking 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…

Reviews

“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

About the author

Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. Her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, written towards the end of the First World War, introduced us to Hercule Poirot, who was to become the most popular detective in crime fiction since Sherlock Holmes. She is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and another billion in over 100 foreign countries. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 19 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott.

    Don't get me wrong, I love Christie's work and she excelled herself with this story - in fact this is one of my favourite books. However, the constant spelling mistakes have annoyed me somewhat. For God's sake, Harper Collins, get a spell check on your copy and rectify the errors because they are too obvious to actually miss!
