I enjoyed the character building in this one as much as the suspense and mystery in the story.

Hercule Poirot investigates a triple murder that takes place on a ship taking a tourist trip up the Nile. The murder of an heiress, one of the richest women in Europe, is only the top of the iceberg of intrigue and secrets that obscure the truth and lead to more deaths.

I think that Agatha Christie was at her best when it came to writing novels. Short stories didn't give her as much room to develop the plot and characters in that special subtle way of hers. I particularly liked this story because on the surface it is a mystery but underneath it all it is really a study in human character, the different types and manifestations of love and the role it plays in the lives of people.

The story was first published in 1938, but it is still a very good story. Agatha Christie was expert in creating lots of suspects and then surprising you with someone quite different.

This is my favorite Agatha Christie novel. Not as well known as And Then There Were None, but I though it was a more effective mystery. Unforgettable characters. I had a lot of fun reading this one.

Agatha Christie is so utterly funny and I adore Hercule Poirot. This is my favorite story so far. Several people seemingly unconnected on a holiday trip on the Nile. Death and mystery and lots of twists and turns. A classic who-done-it.

Poirot, who is always seasick and airsick, takes a boat trip to the Nile River. Why?, you say: because one of the voyagers will be murdered, of course. He must be on hand to puzzle-out and to outwit the culprit in his own inimitably fashion. Would you expect local enforcement to be capable? Hardly! They rarely are in detective literature. It is always the sleuth who is competent. And solve it he does.

Beautiful Linnet Doyle is murdered in her cabin on a trip down the Nile and there is no shortage of suspects....including her new husband's ex, who has been stalking them all along their honeymoon route. Poirot warns her to stop this dangerous behavior, but she cannot. A true classic Christie mystery.
