Murder on the Nile by Agatha Christie
Simon Mostyn and heiress Kay Ridgeway are on their honeymoon on a paddle steamer on the Nile River but all is not roses and champagne. A dark shadow has followed them on their post-wedding travels. Jacqueline de Severac – Simon’s jilted fiancé and Kay’s former best friend – keeps turning up at every stop on the newlywed’s itinerary. Aboard the paddle steamer are a host of characters including Miss ffoliot-ffoukes, a rich, opinionated old lady and her niece – the naive Miss Grant, plus Smith – a direct man with Socialist leanings, Dr. Bessner – a German tourist, Canon Pennefather – Kay’s guardian and several other memorable characters. While journeying along the river murder and mayhem ensue and it is up to Canon Pennefather to uncover the criminals before they reach their destination.
