    Description

    Death On The Nile is a thrilling story of the sudden murder of a wealthy and beautiful woman on a Nile cruise and Hercule Poirot’s investigation of the same.

    Summary Of The Book

    Death On The Nile is one of Agatha Christie’s famed detective novels and was first published in the year 1937. The book talks about a sudden murder mystery on a Nile river cruise and the stepping in of famed Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot. The book is set in Egypt and the river Nile.

    Death On The Nile stands out for its portrayal of the gutsy young Jacqueline de Bellefort who loves her fiance intensely. Her father, Count de Bellefort, had abandoned her mother for another woman. Jacqueline was left penniless after her mother lost a huge sum in the Wall Street crash. She introduces her fiance Simon to her best friend, the wealthy and stunning Linnet Ridgeway. Simon cancels his engagement to Jacqueline after only three months and weds Linnet. Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot is on holiday aboard the river Nile cruise where he comes across this couple and their alleged stalker, Jacqueline.

    The book is peppered with accidents where Linnet and Simon narrowly escape from being hit by a boulder and Jacqueline shoots Simon in the leg in drunken rage. The story takes a turn when Colonel Race, a friend of Hercule Poirot, joins them for the return trip. He confides in Poirot about a dangerous criminal aboard the cruise. The problem lies in the fact that the criminal cannot be identified.

    Death On The Nile takes off from the sudden murder of Linnet and the various unsettling clues scattered about the cruise ship. The book has been adapted to radio shows, films, as well as computer games.

      • 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 44 foreign languages. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 19 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott and saw her work translated into more languages than Shakespeare. Her enduring success, enhanced by many film and TV adaptations, is a tribute to the timeless appeal of her characters and the unequalled ingenuity of the plots.

    A mind bogglers

    The book started to be bore but picked up good pace after 40 odd pages. i read paperback version on available on Indian online retail website whic consisted of almost 400 pages.
    Like all AC thriller it also had lot of twist and turns. I was able to identify the killer befor the climax but the way crime was executed amazed me.

    overall a nice read for crime fiction with Gutsy attitude of Poirot. As usual some characters around the murder partially involved were also present to boggle ur mind.

    Spectacular

    My third book of Agatha Christie after The Big Four and The Murder on the Orient Express and definitely beats them both. The story and plot development was more complete when compared to the other two. Except for the thing that it has high similarity with Murder on the Orient Express in regard to 'poirot comes into the crime scene by surprise', 'passengers lying for the first time' and 'almost all passengers are associated to the person murdered somehow in the past and have a motive to to kil...
