Teaser Tuesday : Death On The Nile by Agatha Christie
Today I am sharing two teasers from Agatha Christie's Death On The Nile. I love Christie's Hercule Poirot and Death on the Nile is a great mystery!
" Don't be sorry for me. Don't be kind. It's easier if you're not" she sighed- a long heartrending sigh. " I'm so tired...I'm so deadly, deadly tired. "
" I know," said Poirot
" People think I'm awful. Stuck up and cross and bad-tempered. I can't help it. I've forgotten how to be- to be nice "
" Mr. Pennington," said Race, " how long have you been in this room? "
" Why, let me see. " Mr. Pennington gently rubbed his chin. " I should say a matter of twenty minutes or so"
" And you haven't left it?"
" Why no- certainly not "
He looked inquiringly at the two men
" You see, Mr. Pennington," said Race " Mrs. Otterbourne was shot with your revolver "
I love how Christie's books were all written in the 30s and they are still great reads today!

Hercule Poirot recalls 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
