Summary

From seat No.9, Hercule Poirot was ideally placed to observe his fellow air passengers. Over to his right sat a pretty young woman, ahead, 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.

Really got us speculating

My Mum and I listened to this together in a car journey to and from my brother's house. On arrival, half way through, we couldn't stop talking about who we thought had done it and why it couldn't be this person or that. It really made the journey enjoyable.

Superb....

I have always loved this ere. The way the story is told and the way it has been presented makes you just slow down and listen to it with no care in the world. I'm a listener of Audible on long drives and this story helps you reduce the speed take life a little easier and enjoy the smaller things in life. Love it!!!!

Another excellent Agatha Christie

Another excellent, exciting mystery featuring our beloved Poirot. A good, solid narration. Indeed, an Agatha Christie could never be anything less than a 5-star experience.

Beautiful mix of Murder and Love Story.

Really nice and smooth story. Bodies don't fell down "en mass" but still keeps readers hooked in.

Most interesting. The psychological analysis was k

the psychological analysis was the key to the crime. I reread it twice to follow the clues left by Monsieur Poirot.
