A full-cast BBC Radio 4 dramatisation of an Agatha Christie story. On a flight from Le Bourget to Croydon, on which Hercule Poirot is an apprehensive passenger, a woman is found dead. A doctor on board is inclined to put it down to a wasp-sting, but Poirot suspects that a poisoned dart is the real cause - and, perhaps rather too conveniently, a blow pipe is discovered stuffed down the back of his seat.

Clearly, the murder can only have been committed by one of the passengers or crew on the plane. But which one? Poirot, Japp, and M. Fournier of the Surete will make their way through shoals of red herrings before reaching an utterly unexpected conclusion.

    " Also known as Death on a Place; I couldn't figure out who did it. Great read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 amanda | 1/31/2014

    " i love Hercule. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helen | 1/22/2014

    " A very mediocre Christie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristin | 12/27/2013

    " another good one. not outstanding, but pretty good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Noora | 12/14/2013

    " I was hesitant between three and four stars, but decided on four because I really had no idea who the murderer was (and believe you me, I had some crazy theories in my head). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Salim | 12/14/2013

    " The Doctor "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cathy Ace | 10/30/2013

    " I'm pretty sure I've read every novel and short story that Agatha Christie wrote and this is one of my favourites. A tightly plotted book, it's the ultimate in closed-room mysteries. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jonathan | 10/27/2013

    " This was the first Agatha Christie book I read. On a train ride to DC. It started me off on reading all of her Poirot books and I am now working off all of her other books as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shashwat | 10/12/2013

    " Was fine. The first clue Poirot mentions kinda gave the criminal away for me, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trevor | 10/8/2013

    " It never fails to amaze me how effective Agatha Christie is at shocking me! Another suprising mystery from the Queen of Crime. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sushant bhatnagar | 8/28/2013

    " The book is awesome through out!!! The climax is the best part in this book!!! I watched the video series of the same book as well... The book is much far better!!!! Poirot intelligence will keep you on the edge of your chair!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Edem Onofeghara | 7/29/2013

    " I love Agatha Christie so maybe I am a bit biased! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erica | 7/8/2013

    " The first agatha christie I ever read back in 1989 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Edward Fajardo | 7/7/2013

    " Yet again, Agatha Christie kept my "little grey cells" going with Death in the Air. I did not exactly hit bullseye in my attempt to solve the murder mystery, but came very close with my thoughts on the blowdart and the wasp. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel Ginestar | 3/30/2013

    " Loved this one and loved much more guessing who the killer was...! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beverly | 1/1/2013

    " Typical Poirot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rainey | 7/12/2012

    " This particular Poirot was very entertaining. Again, Christie almost causes the reader to befriend the criminal without knowing whom that might be. It's the only one of the Poirot murders to take place on a plane, as well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Greta | 5/30/2012

    " The one referenced by Doctor Who "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Juhi | 5/9/2012

    " A gripping murder mystery surrounding the suspicious death of a young man on board an airplane, with a witty and unexpected resolution. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Georgene | 1/2/2012

    " I have this book under the title of "Death in the Air". "Death in the Clouds" was the American title of this book, while "Air" was the British title. Quite a number of Dame Agatha's books had different British and American titles, which can make it confusing if you are trying to read ALL her books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pauline | 12/9/2011

    " aka Death in the Air "

    " kasus misteri kematian aktivis munir mengingatkanku pada buku ini "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ahmed | 4/26/2011

    " One of the best ever, must read one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Simona | 4/24/2011

    " Questo è stato il primo giallo in cui mi è veramente dispiaciuto scoprire chi è il colpevole.
    Quanto amo questa donna! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Manda | 2/24/2011

    " Always fun to find an Agatha Christie I haven't yet read! Really enjoyed it, even though I figured out who the murderer was pretty early on. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie | 2/9/2011

    " A notoriously ruthless French money-lender is murdered in a crowded aeroplane cabin by an arrow dipped in South African snake venom, and no one saw or heard a thing! Only the fantastic Hercule Poirot could possible solve a mystery as bizzare as this! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 2/2/2011

    " Woman murdered on a plane. Poirot saves the day. It was interesting to read about the earliest days of commercial air travel, but this book was good but nothing special for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annesuraya | 1/17/2011

    " It's interesting because I couldn't guess who the murderer is. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dani | 1/13/2011

    " 50 pages into the book and I already had some idea of what was going to happen. Turned out I was right. Really good novel, though. "
