John Moffatt stars as the famous Belgian detective in this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of one of Christie's most popular novels.

Linnet Ridgeway has led a charmed life. Blessed with beauty, enormous wealth, and a devoted husband, she has everything anyone could wish for. But as the happy couple set out on an idyllic honeymoon cruise on the Nile, storm clouds are gathering....

Linnet's former friend, Jacqueline de Bellefort, follows her and Simon wherever they go, and Linnet senses she is in danger. At first, her fears seem groundless. But an attempt is made first on her life and then on her husband's. Eventually, the killer is successful, and Linnet is found horribly murdered. With an obvious suspect who cannot possibly have committed the crime, it is up to Hercule Poirot to probe the depths of a remarkable criminal mind and discover the dark secret behind what is only the first in a series of inexplicable deaths.

    " The previous two books by Christie that I read (Murder On The Orient Express and And Then There Were None) left me baffled throughout as to who the murderer was and who everyone actually was. I had no clue until the truth was finally revealed. Then I read this book. I really loved this story and all its little details, but it didn't have as much mystery for me due to the fact that I had figured out from the very beginning before the cast even made it to Egypt who was going to be the main victim and who the murderer(s) would be. The only person I didn't have figured out before the reveal was the thief, and even then it was more a matter of forgetting about that bit of the plot entirely. Perhaps it was lucky guessing or good intuition on my part, but the 'whodunnit' part of the mystery was just a little bit too obvious to me. It was still fun to watch it play out though. It was enjoyable in its own way because of it, I got a great deal of entertainment watching Poirot and Race struggle to reveal what I had already figured out. Even though I knew who had done what for the most part, I will admit that I had not entirely figured out all of the how before Poirot made his grand reveal. So, kind of disappointingly predictable, but still fun to read despite that. "

    " Great story with a very surprising end! "

    " In Death on the Nile the detective Hercule Poirot solves the crime around Lynnet Doyle's mysterious dead on a boat trip on the Nile. The book describes originally and surprising how Hercule and his friend question the passengers, puzzle and think to find out who killed Lynnet Doyle. I like how reading the book I tried to guess and figure out who committed the murder on my own all the time although knowing Agatha Christie and her imagination I was sure that the crime had been committed more complicated than I was suspecting. Although the book doesn't have a profound background or message, it is very entertaining to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janna | 1/16/2014

    " I recommend all Agatha Christie mysteries, but this is a great one to start with. It stars her Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot, and is a wonderful puzzle with lots of twists and insight into human nature. "

    " I was really looking forward to this one, but in the end it was highly predictable and not exciting nor clever enough. "

    " Another Christie "best." Great characters, love HP all over the world. Probably one of the top 3 HP's. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anette | 6/21/2011

    " Well, as always, Christie is brilliant. I read it in Finnish, so that may have complicated things a tiny bit, but otherwise, enjoyed it very much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Remy | 6/7/2011

    " I enjoyed this thoroughly - I like 30s Christie - but it turned out I'd guessed the killer's identity from the get go - and I never try to. It was more of a "how done it" than a "who done it." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruth | 6/5/2011

    " This is my favorite Hercule Poirot book. I read it many years ago, and no movie does it justice. If you like mysteries, this is a fantastic mystery. I almost figured it out, and it was fantastic!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erik | 5/14/2011

    " Another great book by Agathe Christie. I think I liked this one just as much as "Murder on the Orient Express" and probably more than "The Murder of Roger Ackroyd" or "And Then There Were None".

    Christie truly was a master. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebekkila | 5/13/2011

    " halfway through the book when the murder was committed I realized that I had read this before, probably when I was a teen. But, even knowing who-dun-it it was still a good fast story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zeborah | 5/4/2011

    " Tidily plotted and an enjoyable read, if one is able to wince-and-move-on from the appallingly colonial characterisation of Egypt and its inhabitants... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 4/27/2011

    " The most adventurous Poirot. Characters are among the most memorable out of her entire ouevre. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nazifa | 4/20/2011

    " If you read only one Agatha Christie novel ever - which would be a stupid decision by the way - this is the one to read. It's absolutely brilliant. "
