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."

5.0 Death on the Nile
Well finally! I was starting to worry that I was on a total downswing with the Poirot books. Dumb Witness was really awful. If it hadn't been on my list of Poirot's to read I would have skipped it. Death on the Nile reminds me most of Christie's The Murder of Roger Ackroyd. We have a very smart Poir...
