Death in the Clouds, Hardback
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


A facsmile first edition hardback of the Poirot book, in which a murder is committed on a flight to Paris.

From seat No.9, Hercule Poirot was ideally placed to observe his fellow air passengers.

Over to his right sat a pretty young woman, clearly infatuated with the man opposite; ahead, in seat No.13, sat a Countess with a poorly-concealed cocaine habit; across the gangway in seat No.8, a detective writer was being troubled by an aggressive wasp.

What Poirot did not yet realize was that behind him, in seat No.2, sat the slumped, lifeless body of a woman.

To mark the 80th anniversary of Hercule Poirot's first appearance, and to celebrate his renewed fortunes as a primetime television star, this title in a collection of facsimile first editions is the perfect way to experience Agatha Christie.

Reproducing the original typesetting and format of the first edition from the Christie family's own archive, this book sports the original cover which has been painstakingly restored to its original glory.

Review by

This is classic Christie - a murder in an enclosed space with a limited number of suspects. Poirot tracks down the murderer, of course, ably assisted by two suspects in the murder who can't have done it - or could they? Fantastic.
