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.

Once again a Poirot mystery that is very entertaining! I had not read or heard Death on the Nile and I found it very relaxing but thought provoking. Enjoyable addition for my library.

  • Leadership

  • By: Doris Kearns Goodwin
  • Narrated by: Beau Bridges, David Morse, Jay O. Sanders, and others
  • Length: 18 hrs and 5 mins

Are leaders born or made? Where does ambition come from? How does adversity affect the growth of leadership? Does the man make the times or do the times make the man? In Leadership, Goodwin draws upon four of the presidents she has studied most closely - Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Lyndon B. Johnson (in civil rights) - to show how they first recognized leadership qualities within themselves, and were recognized by others as leaders.

Doris Kearns Goodwin has done a superb job with this book that I believe is a "must read". The narration is excellent. I have told so many about it. Once I had finished this informative book, I was amazed how much knowledge I had acquired and how my opinion on these leaders had been expanded. It was truly a wonderful "read"! If you haven't included this in your library yet, you should. Enjoy!

What begins as a routine journey on the luxurious Orient Express soon unfurls into Agatha Christie's most famous murder mystery. This all-star production features lead performances from Tom Conti ( The Dark Knight Rises, Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence) as Hercule Poirot, Sophie Okonedo ( After Earth, Hotel Rwanda and Ace Ventura) and Eddie Marsan ( Sherlock Holmes, V for Vendetta and Hancock) plus a full supporting cast.

This was my first Audible selection and was a thoroughly enjoyable presentation of one of Agatha Christie's outstanding mysteries. The dramatization of her mystery should not be missed!
