The exotic murder mystery, adapted into a lavish full-colour comic book for the first time. The tranquillity of a cruise along the Nile is shattered by the discovery that Linnet Ridgeway has been shot through the head. She was young, stylish and beautiful, a girl who had everything - until she lost her life. Hercule Poirot recalls an earlier outburst by a fellow passenger: 'I'd like to put my dear little pistol against her head and just press the trigger.' Yet in this exotic setting' nothing is ever quite what it seems...Famed for her crime masterpieces, Agatha Christie's books have become the best-selling in the world, appealing to readers young and old for their ingenious plots and immediately recognizable characters. The stories have also transcended the printed page, become bestselling audiobooks and award-winning films, plays and television series. Now words and pictures combine in an exciting new way of telling these stories - full-colour graphic novels which enhance the original stories and offer a completely new way of enjoying some of the world's most popular and exciting mysteries.
My sister finally convinced me to read an Agatha Christie novel, I having thought such books too shallow and sensational for my taste. I was wrong. The book is, obviously, a murder mystery but Ms. Christie has such insight into human nature, and portrays so insightfully the passions of love, pity, jealousy, and revenge, among others, that drive us to do the very best and worst that humans are capable of. A great read, even if you're not a mystery fan.

The best book ever!
The book "death on the nile" by agatha christie is one of her best murder mysteries. With many twists and turns that you would hardly expect. the storylline is not quite as complex as some of her other ones but the uniqueness of the story makes up for it. For most of agatha christie books it is extremely hard to find out who did it but with this it gives ust the right number of clues. This story isnt just about murder, it is also about a romance story intwined with a hidden meaning. Also the book uses many places from the actual nile river. With it set in the early 20th century it really gives you the feeling of the time. a thorouhgly enjoyable read for all those wanabe dectetives out their and with the wittyness of the dective Mr Hercule Poirot just gives this book that extra touch that most books dont have.
