Very good. Hercule Poirot is a passenger on board a flight from Paris to Croydon. Some time before landing, one of the passengers, a moneylender named Madame Giselle, is found dead. Initially, a reaction to a wasp sting is postulated, but Poirot spies the true cause of death: a poison-tipped dart, apparently fired from a blowpipe. It becomes clear that the victim has been murdered. This novel was first published in 1935 by Collins, and this later, vintage reprint was published in 1952. Item #65760
