I have very fond memories of Death on the Nile because it was one of the first Agatha Christie novels that I ever read. I’ve always had a romantic fascination with Egypt and so this novel really appealed to me when I was about 15 and just starting to read golden age mysteries. I like cover #1 because the colors are beautiful, but #4 also catches the eye. #6 is just magnificent in its 70’s gaudiness. Which cover do you like? What is your favorite Poirot novel?
