2008: 41. Death in the Air

]

“The September sun beat down hotly on Le Bourget aerodrome as the passengers crossed the ground and climbed into the air liner “Prometheus,” due to depart for Croydon in a few minutes’ time.”

Death in the Air, Agatha Christie

This is another fun one.  The description of 1930’s air travel alone is interesting enough to sustain a read, but the idea of a murder taking place mid-air on a small airliner in front of everyone is pretty fun too.  Plus there are a few cute love stories, a bit of a Roger Ackroyd-esque ending (just a bit) and my boy Hercule solving the day.  A nice fun little mystery with a taste of old fashioned air travel to boot.

Date/Place Completed: 3/12/08; D.C.
