Description

His physical resemblance to Andrew Pennington may be a red herring (since mistaken identities are a common theme in mystery stories), but ultimately, he doesn’t play a big role in the story. While taking a tour of some ancient ruins, a boulder falls from a cliff, narrowly missing Linnet and Simon. Elsewhere, characters comment on the race laws in the US, growing anti-Semitism in Europe, and general feelings of xenophobia against anyone deemed "different" in a way that is critical.

But these xenophobic caricatures are nothing compared to the way the Middle East is represented in her books – its inhabitants are frequently depicted in the most dehumanising terms, such as in Death on the Nile, where she describes a group of merchants as a "human cluster of flies". in the feast of death is entirely logical, and the main alibi, unshakeable except for Poirot, is of the first brilliance. As in the book, Jacqueline shoots herself and Simon rather than face the consequences of their actions, though in the novel it’s something Poirot allows to happen out of sympathy. Otterbourne, a novelist in decline, harboring an unnamed illness; and her daughter Rosalie, who seems to suffer some inner torture.Mrs Otterbourne later meets with Poirot and Race in Simon's cabin, claiming she saw who killed the maid, to which Simon loudly declares his surprise. When her friend Jacqueline De Bellefort asks Linnet to find a job for her poor fiancé, Simon Doyle, Linnet ends up marrying Simon instead.

When pressed, Poirot reveals he had always known she had a second pistol, but had chosen to allow her to take her own life. He believed that Simon would be a better business partner because he wasn’t as smart or disciplined as Linnet and would just sign anything without reading it.This gets to the heart of the conundrum as modern film and TV makers try to tackle an author from a different time like Agatha Christie in adaptations aimed at a popular audience. Jacqueline says that she and Simon have always been in love, and Simon never cared for Linnet, even when she tried to steal him away from Jacqueline. With Jacqueline detained for shooting Simon, and Simon supposedly injured at the time Linnet was killed, they are both cleared of suspicion—at first.
