Death In The Clouds by Agatha Christie
Death In The Clouds by Agatha Christie
... might have been the better title, but I wasn't there when she decided on the title. Oh well.
Air travel in its infancy was neither a preferred nor a classy mode of transportation. The infamous air-sickness was the major drawback of airplanes in the 1930s.

Partners In Crime by Agatha Christie
Partners In Crime by Agatha Christie
No one does it better than Tommy and Tuppence. Amateur sleuths in their own way, they were not to be underestimated because both have their own ways to solve crimes, and even more interesting banters in between crime-solving. These shorties will make you love them and wish that the Queen would have written more of them in the past.
