Summary, etc.:
Aboard a Nile steamer, Hercule Poirot meets Linnet Doyle, a woman who appears to have everything: youth, beauty, wealth, and a loving husband. But the husband was stolen from her friend Jacqueline de Bellefort, who has been haunting the newlyweds' path, showing up to wreak havoc in their plans. They've secretly booked passage on the steamer to escape, but still, tragedy strikes: Linnet is shot through the head. As the complications multiply, Poirot and his little grey cells are faced with nothing but airtight alibis.

    *Starred Review* Suchet, who masterfully portrayed the redoubtable Hercule Poirot on the PBS Mystery! series, adapts his stellar performance to this brilliant audio. Suchet brings such depth and charm to the reading of one of Christie's best-loved mysteries that listeners will be spellbound. The British actor's rich voice lends itself to the large cast of characters, including the shallow Linnett Ridgeway, ineffectual Simon Doyle, and maddened Jacqueline de Bellefort. And Suchet's characterization of Poirot is so perfect and familiar that it elicits a smile, as if one is greeting a long-lost friend. The story, one of impossible murder, jealousy, and hidden secrets among a traveling party journeying down the Nile River, is cleverly plotted, filled with suspects, and diabolically constructed. Suchet manages the plot perfectly, changing pace and inflection with ease, bringing each character to life, and building up suspense and anxiety. His voice evokes Christie's characters so well that he sets the standard for other readers of her works. A pure pleasure from start to finish, this is highly recommended for Christie fans as well as anyone looking for a satisfying audiobook experience. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
