Death on the Nile has all the ingredients that are required for a winning Poirot mystery – exotic locale, travel, complicated love story, sidekick for Poirot who is less intelligent than our favorite investigator and, of course, plenty of red herrings.
This was enjoyable and I’m sure I’ll remember it as one of the best stories in the series. But, I’m giving it 4-stars rather than 5 because I felt that some of the secondary “love stories” were less than believable. But, truly, it doesn’t matter. Christie can do no wrong. Luckily I have plenty more of her library to read. Once I finish them all, though, it will be a sad, sad day.
