Publisher's Summary

From seat No.9, Hercule Poirot was ideally placed to observe his fellow air passengers. Over to his right sat a pretty young woman, ahead, 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.

Thrilling read!

What did you like most about Death In the Clouds?

The way Christie manipulates and uses the tropes of the genre is endlessly fascinating and interesting.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Death In the Clouds?

My favourite bit of crime fiction is always the reveal of who and how the crime was committed, this novel is not different.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The ending, I always love the reveal.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Direct Flight to Death!

the psychological analysis was the key to the crime. I reread it twice to follow the clues left by Monsieur Poirot.

Really got us speculating

My Mum and I listened to this together in a car journey to and from my brother's house. On arrival, half way through, we couldn't stop talking about who we thought had done it and why it couldn't be this person or that. It really made the journey enjoyable.

Another excellent Agatha Christie

Another excellent, exciting mystery featuring our beloved Poirot. A good, solid narration. Indeed, an Agatha Christie could never be anything less than a 5-star experience.

Beautiful mix of Murder and Love Story.

Really nice and smooth story. Bodies don't fell down "en mass" but still keeps readers hooked in.
