"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." -- from the publisher.

It always amazes how Mrs. Christie (she was married!) was able to concoct so many crimes in her mind. Another very good book, with a surprising, yet, quite simple ending. Highly recommend.

I'm pleased to say that I'm getting the hang of guessing who Ms. Christie ends up choosing for the murderer! :D Of course, the motive and process of the murder are always beyond my intellectual skill, and best left for our favorite mustached detective, Hercule Poirot. <3 The plot of this book was a bit similar to "The Mystery of the Blue Train", but still had its own twists and I enjoyed it thoroughly.

I started reading the Poirot books because I like the David Suchet TV sereis, which made into a Poirot fan. I am still at the beginning of them all, but of the ones I have read, I particularly enjoyed this.

Not one of great Poirot novels, it is still a lot of fun and worth a read.

Originally published as "Death in the Sky".
I haven't met a book by this author that I haven't enjoyed.
