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.

Professional reviews

"Hercule Poirot is on vacation, cruising the Nile to see the sites of ancient Egypt. During the trip, a beautiful American woman is killed, and her new husband suffers a bullet wound to the leg. Poirot sifts through the usual Christie cast of characters, nearly all of them with motive or opportunity or both. Reader David Suchet is known to TV viewers as Poirot on PBS's "Mystery." He brings a perfect Belgian accent to Poirot and nimbly moves from one character to the next, in and out of narration. Christie has been criticized for withholding key information from the reader (while letting Poirot know it). While this can be a distraction in print, listeners are much less likely to be bothered. Suchet's reading will carry them along nicely. R.C.G. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
