Designed to follow the new-look series of Hercule Poirot books for the 21st century. Complete and Unabridged edition read by Hugh Fraser now available on both audio cassette and CD.
From seat No.9, Hercule Poirot was ideally placed to observe his fellow air passengers. Over to his right sat a pretty young woman, clearly infatuated with the man opposite; ahead, in seat No.13, sat a Countess with a poorly-concealed cocaine habit; across the gangway in seat No.8, a detective writer was being troubled by an aggressive wasp.
What Poirot did not yet realize was that behind him, in seat No.2, sat the slumped, lifeless body of a woman.

Just before the short flight from Le Bourget to Croydon a steward finds the woman in seat number two dead, apparently from a wasp sting. But Hercule Poirot is also on the flight and his discovery of a poisoned dart leads him to believe that the wasp did not cause her death.Review:
“It will be a very acute reader who does not receive a complete surprise at the end.”
