Oops! Should I put the correct answers in spoiler tags so as not to spoil things for those who haven't read that particular book?

2. Arlena Marshall
3. Linnet Ridgeway Doyle
Spoiler:
Shot. Murder on the Nile

Yes - on both counts!
4. Ruby Keene - The Body in the Library - pdurrant

5. Mr. Ratchett
Spoiler:
Stabbed - several times. Murder on the Orient Express

Yes - on both counts

6. Henry Morley
Mr. Amberiotis
Spoiler:
Stabbed in the throat. Cards on the Table

7. Thomasina Tuckerton
8. Marlene Tucker
9. Rex Fortescue
10. Madame Giselle
11. Hercule Poirot - Curtain - pdurrant
Spoiler:
Natural causes. Old age?

Close, but not quite.


See my comments above - great start!

1. Emily Ingelthorp - The Mysterious Affair at Styles - Iznogood
Spoiler:
Poison. A famous poison. Strychnine, arsenic or cyanide. By "cyanide" I mean all the cyanide acids HCN, KCN etc. That's as specific as I can be. I only have a vague rememberence of the poison


2. Arlena Marshall
I know this one too, but I can't for the life of me remember the book. Is it a Miss Marple story?

Edit:
Spoiler:
Arlena Mashall isn't by any chance the actress that commits suicide in the book where Mrs. Bantry have sold the Something Hall (Gossington Hall?), the same house in which The Body in the Library is found? If so, it was suicide by poison again - sleeping drugs or something


6. Henry Morley
Mr. Amberiotis
Spoiler:
Is this the one at the dentists then?


11. Hercule Poirot - Curtain - pdurrant
Spoiler:
Was he shot then? Perhaps between the eyes? One of the deaths in this book is caused by a bullet in the head like a mark of Cain, but I don't remember whether that was Poirot or his victim. It would be very appropriate if it was Poirot though. Suicide by pistol?

Right about Emily Ingelthorp

Sorry - wrong about Arlena

Right about Mr. Amberiotis

Wrong victim for Hercule

OK - so it seems my quiz question about dead bodies has killed the thread!
[Poetic justice?] I've filled in the answers below in spoiler tags - in case anyone still wants to guess.

Iznogood is clearly the winner - so take it away and give us a new question!
