Explaining basic things for people who haven’t read the earlier books in the series. Q: You write under several names, don’t you? A: Yes, I write crime as Peter Fielding and J. R. Elliot.

C. TYLER Herring on the Nile MACMILLAN To Will and to the MNWers, past, present and future The Truth is rarely pure and never simple. Explaining basic things for people who haven’t read the earlier books in the series. I also write romantic fiction as Amanda Collins. None of those is my real name. Q: What would you see as the main influences on your writing style? A: I’ve always admired the crime writers of the Golden Age – Christie and Sayers in particular. For some reason I never have got to grips with dear old Margery Allingham.

L C Tyler was born in Southend-on-Sea and educated at Oxford and City Universities. This one's a tribute to Agatha Christie's "Death on the Nile," but with modern implements and contrivances. He has won awards for his writing, and regularly contributes to national newspapers including The Guardian and the Daily Telegraph. He is the Vice Chair of the Crime Writers' Association and a CWA short story Dagger judge. L C Tyler lives in Islington, London. It's narrated in first person, bouncing back and forth between our mystery-writing protagonist, Ethelbert, and his long-suffering agent, Elsie.

One of the few aphorisms that I still follow – or indeed can now recall – is that, on holiday, you should always opt for an early breakfast re that much fresher

One of the few aphorisms that I still follow – or indeed can now recall – is that, on holiday, you should always opt for an early breakfast re that much fresher. The stocks of cereal and jam would still be complete. The staff would be that much more attentive.

Herring on the Nile book. In an effort to rejuvenate his flagging career, crime novelist. This is quite a good mystery pastiche with LC Tyler taking on the Agatha Christie original and spinning it out with some wit. I wouldn't go so far as to say it's even remotely funny but I understand that's its intention.

Herring on the Nile - . If I’d noticed any references in the tour brochure to a dead body floating in the Nile or to the cold barrel of a gun pointing at a spot precisely midway between my eyes, I might have decided South Wales in a blizzard was in fact the much better option. But perhaps they’d hidden that sort of stuff in the small print, along with the fuel surcharges.

Ethelred Tressider’s career is not, let’s face it, what one might call glittering  . In a desperate effort to revive his imagination, Ethelred books a cruise down the Nile-cradle of civilization and so on. Well, it worked for Agatha Christie. It is not, however, working very well for Ethelred. He is the Vice Chair of the Crime Writers' Association and a CWA short story Dagger judge

In an effort to rejuvenate his flagging career, crime novelist Ethelred Tressider decides to set his new book in Egypt and embarks on a `research trip' with his literary agent, Elsie Thirkettle, in tow. No sooner has their cruise on the Nile begun, however, than an attempt is made on Ethelred's life. When the boat's engine explodes and a passenger is found bloodily murdered, suspicion falls on everyone aboard - including a third-rate private eye, two individuals who may or may not be undercover police, and Ethelred himself. As the boat drifts out of control, though, it seems that events are being controlled by a party far more radical than anyone could have guessed. Herring on the Nile is an ingenious mystery, and a darkly funny tribute to Agatha Christie and the golden age of crime fiction. `Tyler juggles characters, story, wit and clever one-liners with perfect balance' The Times
  • This one's a tribute to Agatha Christie's "Death on the Nile," but with modern implements and contrivances. It's narrated in first person, bouncing back and forth between our mystery-writing protagonist, Ethelbert, and his long-suffering agent, Elsie. Neither one understands the scope of the goings-on so you get to enjoy the multitudinous gaffes of the unreliable narrators. The writing is smart and well-plotted, and if you like to think of yourself as a clever reader, you'll enjoy all of the references, some quite buried, to the great Christie. I was hoping for more plot points to actually occur in famous Egyptian settings, but that's a minor quibble.

  • I so enjoyed this book. Of course, I like books set in Egypt, but this was so funny. Ethelred is such a gormless guy to be the hero of a book. Can't wait to read the rest in this series.
