Death In The Clouds by Agatha Christie
An excellent near fine copy, the binding square and firm, the cloth fresh with a small strip of fading to the upper spine tips where the dustwrapper was, at some point, folded down. The contents are entirely complete, clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the lightly rubbed and nicked dustwrapper which has a few short closed tears with associated creasing to the extremities. An exceptional example of a rare Hercule Poirot title to acquire in the correct dustwrapper. A remarkably modern story published in July , the plot involving a flight between Paris and London, a route which didn't actually come into service until later in the same year using converted bombers for passenger aircraft.

Death in the Clouds
Disclaimer:A readable copy. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact. Pages can include considerable notes-in pen or highlighter-but the notes cannot obscure the text. Dust jacket quality is not guaranteed. Perfection Learning Corporation, Disclaimer:A copy that has been read, but remains in clean condition. The spine may show signs of wear. Not the Tom Adams cover though. The Moving Finger is very good too, Peggy.
I want to own a copy of all the editions with covers by Tom Adams, Kate, but don't know that I will achieve that. I have two books on his cover illustrations, but haven't made a list of all the Agatha Christie books with his covers yet. That is a great cover. I don't think I've read this one but have seen it a few times on TV.
As soon as I finished this book, Katrina, I thought an adaptation would be really fun. I will be looking into where I can find one to watch. I like this one, without its being in my top 5 or even I have only read 8 books with Hercule Poirot since I started blogging, Moira, so don't have a lot to compare against. But this one is close to the top, after Murder on the Orient Express and Death on the Nile which I just recently finished reading.
Tom Adams did some lovely paperback covers, Mathew, and not just for Christie. I have been reading more Christie lately and that trend will probably continue for a while.

Definitely a good one. Though I must say the killer in this one had guts of steel. The Tom Adams cover is especially good, Tracy. There is a book, if I'm not mistaken, featuring all the many Christie covers done by Adams. There are two books with Tom Adams covers, Yvette, and I do have both of them.

I think one of them is only Christie covers and the other includes covers of other books too. I just need to go thru and figure out which ones I have. I found quite a few last year at the book sale, maybe a few more will show up there in September. It's been a long time since I read this one, but I remember that I enjoyed it.

However, like Ackroid, once you know the trick, it's harder to be fooled. I know, Rick, I just read Death on the Nile because I want to watch the movie with Peter Ustinov and I figured that one out early on even though of course I doubted myself throughout. Tracy, I'm glad you enjoyed it, but not one I'll be seeking out thanks. Thanks - I do have a few to try - Clocks, Brown Suit 4. I have not read Clocks or to whatever, but Brown Suit is good. However, it still may not be your type of book, Col.
Death in the Clouds
This Hercule Poirot mystery was published in A woman is killed on an airplane during a flight from Paris to Croydon. If Anne Giselle was brought up in Toronto, shouldn't she have a Canadian accent?

One fake murder method to mislead the police makes sense, but two seems counterproductive, especially when they are apparently designed to look like each other.
Surely the most sensible plan would be to release the wasp and dispose of the dart. Even murderers are capable of falling in love. That did not give Japp the right to take over Fournier's office like he had every right to do so. Worse, the whole scenario is unrealistic, regardless of how "incompetent" the Parisian detective was. I guess the fact that her maid disappeared didn't affect Lady Horbury. Should it have? She must have disappeared if she got married and went on a honeymoon.
Also, if she was a maid, would she have hobnobbed with the high society elite as is indicated in the film? Seems out of place and unrealistic.
