Calling all Agathytes: Death on the Nile in May

Reblogged from Moonlight Reader

Themis, BrokenTune & I are planning to revisit Death on the Nile next month, around May 18th!

Death on the Nile is a particularly delicious Christie puzzle mystery, with lots of delightful side plots, some romantic intrigue, a bit of espionage, and appearances both by Monsieur Poirot, our favorite Belgian, and the enigmatic Colonel Race, who is on the track of a nasty international criminal. 

There is also a pretty good Poirot adaptation from the Suchet series, starring Emily Blunt and J.J. Feild, pictured above, as Linnett and Simon Ridgeway. I’m also planning on tracking down and watching the 1978 Peter Ustinov adaptation to round out my Death on the Nile extravaganza. It looks hilariously campy, with Angela Lansbury as the ridiculous Salome Otterbourne, and Bette Davis as Mrs. Van Schuyler. Can’t wait!

Join us on May 18!
