In one of her most popular mysteries, Agatha Christie leads us into a maze of evil as dark and labyrinthine as the ancient tombs of the Pharoahs. Linnet Ridgeway has led a charmed life. Blessed with beauty, enormous wealth and a devoted husband, she has everything anyone could wish for. But as the happy couple set out on an idyllic honeymoon cruise on the Nile, storm clouds are gathering…John Moffatt stars as the famous Belgian detective in this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation.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.

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.

The three stories make up a satisfying trilogy of mysteries as Poirot tours the Near East finding murder everywhere he goes.

Death Comes for the Honeymooners As one would expect from an Agatha Christie novel, “Death on the Nile” is a fast-paced, intricately plotted mystery. With a wide cast of characters, Christie plumbs the depths of mystery writing standards, using red herrings that not only confuse the characters but confound the reader as well. “Death on the Nile” is a superb example of a crime so simple that it might just be too difficult to figure out…or is it?When the reader first meets Linnet Ridgeway, she has everything -…
