    First there was the mystery of the film star and the diamond...then came the "suicide" that was murder...the mystery of the absurdly cheap flat...a suspicious death in a locked gun-room...a million dollar bond robbery...the curse of a pharoah's tomb...a jewel robbery by the sea...the abduction of a Prime Minister...the disappearance of a banker...a phone call from a dying man...and, finally, the mystery of the missing will.

    What did you love best about The Fires of Heaven?

    Fantastic story and so well read. Wonderful to hear the intended pronunciations.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mat Cauthon as his character really begins to take shape from this book on.


    Which character – as performed by Kate Reading and Michael Kramer – was your favorite?

    Kate does an excellent job with Egwene al Vere and my favourite in this book with Michael is Matt Cauthon. He really captures his spirit I think.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not possible as it is way too long. But having read the paperback, listening to it as I travel has been a delight.

    Story
    (25)

    The tranquillity of a cruise along the Nile was shattered by the discovery that Linnet Ridgeway had been shot through the head. She was young, stylish, and beautiful. A girl who had everything...until she lost her life. Hercule Poirot recalled 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 was ever quite what it seemed.

    Emily says: "Poirot read by Suchet - this could never go wrong!"
    "A beautiful story, masterfully told."

    What did you love best about Death on the Nile?

    Different to the movie in telling ways, but excellent.


    What does David Suchet bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His profiling of the characters through his expressive voice brings them to life in a special way.

    Beautiful young Elinor Carlisle stands serenely in the dock, accused of the murder of Mary Gerrard, her rival in love. The evidence is damning: only Elinor had the motive, the opportunity, and the means to administer the fatal poison. Yet, inside the hostile courtroom, one man still presumes Elinor is innocent until proven guilty: Hercule Poirot, who is all that stands between Elinor and the gallows.
