Hercule Poirot must solve a perplexing case of midair murder in Death in the Clouds when he discovers that the woman in seat two of the airborne aeroplane he's traveling on is quite unexpectedly--and unnaturally--deceased.

From seat No. 9, Hercule Poirot was ideally placed to observe his fellow air passengers on the short flight from Paris to London. 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 writer of detective fiction was being troubled by an aggressive wasp.

Yes, Poirot is almost ideally placed to take it all in, except what he did not yet realize was that behind him, in seat No. 2, sat the slumped, lifeless body of a woman. Murdered, and likely by someone in Poirot's immediate proximity.

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.

I haven't met a book by this author that I haven't enjoyed.
