Agatha Christie
Death on the Nile





Probably going to start this after I finish the Red Woman case.
Also this is kind of going to be a translation from another language so I wonder how it’s going to work... Whatever. It’s going to be a page-by-page thing since the story is quite long.



This book I got is from 1978 so it may have some inconsistencies for the preview since it mentions that the book was made 40 years ago, which actually means 1937, not 1974.

Back of the book:
>>Death on the Nile is one of Agatha Christie’s most interesting and most famous thriller stories. It first appeared about 40 years ago. --Now there’s a movie in the making with a group of some of the best actors that there is (lol).

Beautiful young million-heiress Linnet Ridgeway decides to steal a boyfriend from her penniless friend. The couple’s honeymoon, a sailing trip on the Nile on a nice cruise ship- Karnaik (I have no idea what the name is in english, but I’ll go with Karnaik since it’s ~that in this), turns out to be a nightmare.-The beautiful Linnet is found dead, murdered, in her cabin.
Who is the perp? The group of suspects for the case is large and colorful.
Why is Linnet’s guardian, Andrew Pennington, coincidentally on the same cruise around the Nile? Where does Linnets penniless friend get enough cash so that she can spy on the wedding couple around the world? Where has the filthy-rich Miss Van Schulyler’s velvet headscarf disappeared to? Why did the italian arceologian, Signor Richett, get mad angry when he saw Linnet open his telegram on accident?

Master detective Hercule Poirot’s famous brains are getting to put in that work in this detective-thriller story. Many surprising twists will come to the surface about the motives of the Karnaik cruise-group... And the twists don’t just end there. There is alot to learn about the unexpected romances between the people that are included in this story, and a nice amount of other different mysteries and crimes to solve.

See this is what I mean. When people are ignoring. Try to write what you want to write in 10 sentences max.

You should try out “And Then There Were None”. In my opinion, it’s her quintessential work. In fact, it shaped the entire Murder Mystery genre but setting the general rules and tropes of a murder mystery (minus maybe the detective figure, that mantle’s passed around by each of the suspects)

Most overrated work as a matter of fact still better than your favourite series though
