Death in the Clouds: A Hercule Poirot Mystery | [Agatha Christie]

Death in the Clouds: A Hercule Poirot Mystery

From seat number nine, Hercule Poirot is almost ideally placed to observe his fellow air travelers on this short flight from Paris to London. Over to his right sits a pretty young woman, clearly infatuated with the man opposite. Ahead, in seat number 13, is the Countess of Horbury, horribly addicted to cocaine and not doing too good a job of concealing it. Across the gangway in seat number eight, a writer of detective fiction is being troubled by an aggressive wasp. Yes, Poirot is almost ideally placed to take it all in.

Publisher's Summary

From seat number nine, Hercule Poirot is almost ideally placed to observe his fellow air travelers on this short flight from Paris to London. Over to his right sits a pretty young woman, clearly infatuated with the man opposite. Ahead, in seat number 13, is the Countess of Horbury, horribly addicted to cocaine and not doing too good a job of concealing it. Across the gangway in seat number eight, a writer of detective fiction is being troubled by an aggressive wasp. Yes, Poirot is almost ideally placed to take it all in - except that the passenger in the seat directly behind him has slumped over in the course of the flight ... dead.

Murdered. By someone in Poirot's immediate proximity. And Poirot himself must number among the suspects.

This title was previously published as Death in the Air.

    "Excellent"
    What made the experience of listening to Death in the Clouds the most enjoyable?

    Hugh Fraser never disappoints. This is another excellent Agatha Christie mystery. I tried so hard to figure it out but was still completely in the dark up until the last 5 min. when it was explained. An excellent read!....er, hear!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I tried so hard to figure it out but was still completely in the dark up until the last 5 min. when it was explained. Several of what I thought were "clues" never came into play.


    What about Hugh Fraser’s performance did you like?

    He is so consistent with his voices throughout the books. I know who is talking now just by the voice. I really appreciate that because it helps the book become more real and easier to follow.

    Story
    "Sensational murder on an airplane"

    Another great and puzzling installment in the Poirot canon. I had correctly identified the murderer early in the narrative, but had absolutely no idea how or why it was done, nor could I follow some of Poirot's methodical steps to solving it. Sensational crime, and sensational solution revealed. Once again, fantastic performance by Fraser.
