Death on the Nile

aaabookI am sorry to say that I haven’t read many of Agatha Christie’s titles, and was pointed to this one while reading another book. It did not disappoint! Featuring Hercule Poirot, Death on the Nile contains all the elements for a murder: greed, jealousy, anger, and love. Poirot is aboard a ship for a cruise on the Nile when several murders occur during the trip, and he must use his extensive powers of deduction to narrow the search to the one passenger who has committed the crimes. Written in 1937, it still hails as a classic whodunit and I found it very entertaining. The places visited by the characters are all fabulous: Ez-Sebua, Assuan (now Aswan), the Cataract Hotel and Abu Simbel. I think I’ll watch the movie next…
