DetailsA facsimile first edition hardback of one of Poirot's most famous cases, published to mark the 80th anniversary of his first appearance. The tranquillity of a cruise along the Nile was shattered by the discovery that Linnet Ridgeway had been shot through the head. She was young, stylish and beautiful. A girl who had everything until she lost her life. Hercule Poirot recalled an earlier outburst by a fellow passenger: I'd like to put my dear little pistol against her head and just press the trigger.'
