Death in the Clouds - Agatha Christie ... murder is committed on a flight to Paris. 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. To mark the 80th anniversary of Hercule Poirot's first appearance, and to celebrate his renewed fortunes as a primetime television star, this title in a collection of facsimile first editions is the perfect way to experience Agatha Christie. Reproducing the original typesetting and format of the first edition from the Christie family's own archive, this book sports the original cover which has been painstakingly restored to its original glory.

Suggestions are first given to the possibility of an allergic reaction to a wasp sting, since that creature was flying round the plane at the time. Yet the discovery of first a dart and then, later, a blowpipe, points to a different interpretation of events and it soon becomes evident that the ... Read the complete review

Very fascinating time in American history, and a nice angle of the story.
The ending was unsatisfactory and felt a bit rushed, and almost like a history lesson.
