Soon to be a major motion picture sequel to Murder on the Orient Express with a screenplay by Michael Green, directed by and starring Kenneth Branagh alongside Gal Gadot—coming February 11, 2022!
Beloved detective Hercule Poirot embarks on a journey to Egypt in one of Agatha Christie’s most famous mysteries.
The tranquility of a luxury 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 under the searing heat of the Egyptian sun, nothing is ever quite what it seems.
A sweeping mystery of love, jealousy, and betrayal, Death on the Nile is one of Christie’s most legendary and timeless works.
“Death on the Nile is perfect.” —The Guardian
“One of her best. . . . First rate entertainment.” —Kirkus Reviews

"There is a reason Dame Agatha Christie is one of the standards by which the genre is set.
There is a deftness in the layers and characters that face "the little Belgian" here. How much are the turn of events human nature, how much chance? Impossible not to be drawn in...but few of us will solve the case. (Certainly I'm not a match for Poirot's brain.)
I also have to give credit to David Suchet. I can't picture anyone else doing a better job. It's no easy thing to portray every character in the book using only one's voice, and he did it supremely well.
