Wow, a real tour-de-force for Agatha. The writing is definately a cut above many of her novels, and the story is rich in psychological aspects, tight plotting, vivid characterization, and an evocative setting.

Golden girl Linnet Doyle seems to have everything: looks, money, personality, business sense, and, as it turns out...enemies. After stealing her passionate school chum Jacqueline de Bellefort's handsome fiance, Simon, she heads out to Egypt for an exotic honeymoon. But Jackie is not a woman to be scorned as she haunts the newlyweds in an attempt to poison their new life together. On a cruise up the Nile, Linnet meets her untimely end, but as Jackie has an unstoppable alibi, who could have wished her dead? Apparently, the list is endless. Luckily, Hercule Poirot is on vacation on the same boat and just cannot let his little grey cells rest...

Truly fantastic and one of the best five novels Agatha wrote. Highly recommended for all readers.
