Originally published in 1937. Poirot, on vacation in Africa, meets the rich, beautiful Linnet Doyle and her new husband, Simon. As usual, all is not as it seems between the newlyweds, and when Linnet is found murdered, Poirot must sort through a boatload of suspects to find the killer before he (or she) strikes again.

Erin Green | 45 comments I have my copy ready and waiting. It’ll be another reread but it’s worth it.


Joseph Robbins (leer03) | 3 comments I like the set up of the book. I got one half of the suspects correct. Hopefully that doesn’t ruin it for anyone. I didn’t like the Colonel Race character showing up. I felt like the story didn’t need him, or his subplot. Although, that was probably the point - to throw us off the trail.


Erin Green | 45 comments This was a reread for me. I'd remembered the ending but couldn't for the life of me sort 'the wheat from the chaff' whilst reading. An enjoyable book, as always but not my favourite.

I agree with Lee - Colonel Race character was an unnecessary extra.

I agree.


LovesMysteries  | 52 comments I like Colonel Race in this and think his appearance along with the subplot that he pertains to complicates the mystery.
