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.

Incredible performance, intriguing story.

Brilliantly performed by dear Hugh Fraser. Exciting story that could be enjoyed in one sitting if life just wouldn't get in the way!

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.
