9780007234479: Death on the Nile

Aboard a Nile steamer, Hercule Poirot meets Linnet Doyle, a woman who appears to have everything: youth, beauty, wealth, and a loving husband. But the husband was stolen from her friend Jacqueline de Bellefort, who has been haunting the newlyweds’ path, showing up to wreak havoc in their plans. They’ve secretly booked passage on the steamer to escape, but still, tragedy strikes: Linnet is shot through the head. As the complications multiply, Poirot and his little grey cells are faced with nothing but airtight alibis.

Review:

Hercule Poirot is perhaps Agatha Christie's most interesting and endearing character; short, round, and slightly comical, Poirot has a razor-sharp mind and puts unlimited trust in his "little grey cells." Those little cells come through for him every time, enabling Poirot to solve some of the most baffling mysteries ever conceived. In Death on the Nile, Poirot, on vacation in Africa, meets the rich, beautiful Linnet Doyle and her new husband, Simon. As usual, all is not as it seems between the newlyweds, and when Linnet is found murdered, Poirot must sort through a boatload of suspects to find the killer before he (or she) strikes again.

From the Inside Flap:

Agatha Christie's genius for detective fiction is unparalleled. Her worldwide popularity is phenomenal, her characters engaging, her plots spellbinding. No one knows the human heart--or the dark passions that can stop it--better than Agatha Christie. She is truly the one and only Queen of Crime.

Linnet Doyle is young, beautiful, and rich. She's the girl who has everything--including the man her best friend loves. Linnet and her new husband take a cruise on the Nile, where they meet the brilliant detective Hercule Poirot. It should be an idyllic trip, yet Poirot has a vague, uneasy feeling that something is dangerously amiss...
