Mystery Lovers Discuss Death on the Nile by Agatha Christie on Zoom

March 30, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Voyage to Egypt in the company of Hercule Poirot when we discuss Death on the Nile.

“Beloved detective Hercule Poirot embarks on a journey to Egypt in one of Agatha Christie’s most famous mysteries, Death on the Nile. The tranquility 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.” Yet in this exotic setting nothing is ever quite what it seems.”

All adults are welcome to join our book discussions.  Please email Beth Van Ness at bvanness@libraryconnection.info or bvanness@townofcantonct.org if you would like to register.  You will receive the Zoom link on the day of the meeting.  Copies of this book are available at the library or on our Hoopla downloadable catalog.  We will also discuss Christie’s life and her mysterious disappearance in 1926.
