Agatha Christie avec Death in the Clouds

A woman is killed by a poisoned dart in the enclosed confines of a commercial passenger plane…

From seat No.9, Hercule Poirot was ideally placed to observe his fellow air passengers. Over to his right sat a pretty young woman, clearly infatuated with the man opposite; ahead, in seat No.13, sat a Countess with a poorly-concealed cocaine habit; across the gangway in seat No.8, a detective writer was being troubled by an aggressive wasp.

What Poirot did not yet realize was that behind him, in seat No.2, sat the slumped, lifeless body of a woman.

Review

“It will be a very acute reader who does not receive a complete surprise at the end.”
Times Literary Supplement

From seat no. 9, hercule poirot was ideally placed to observe his fellow air passengers. Over to his right sat a pretty young woman, clearly infatuated with the man opposite; ahead, in seat No. 13, sat a Countess with a poorly-concealed cocaine habit habit; across the gangway in seat No. 8, a detective writer was being troubled by an aggressive wasp.

What Poirot did not yet realise was that behind him, in seat No. 2, sat the slumped, lifeless body of a woman.

FOR THE PASSENGERS ON THE AIR LINER PROMETHEUS, THE SHORT CHANNEL HOP FROM LE BOURGET WAS TO BE ANYTHING BUT ROUTINE

Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. She wrote 80 crime mysteries and collections, 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 her plots.
