Abstract:

THE SCENE: An exotic cruise in the land of the ancient Pharaohs. THE VICTIM: She made such a lovely bride. Alas, a tiny round bullet hole just above her right ear had interrupted what seemed to be a perfect honeymoon. THE SUSPECTS: The boat was crawling with them, including the ex-girl friend of the groom who said she had just come along for the ride-and the groom himself who had at least a couple of dozen million motives ($) for murder. THE CLUES: A dainty pearl-handled revolver, a string of stolen pearls and an initial scrawled in blood ... THE SOLUTION: Even the great Hercule Poirot couldn't put the pieces together in time to prevent the murderer from striking again!

A rich woman has recently moved into town. She is supposed to marry a lovely young man who has fallen deeply in love with her. Then her friend (who has lost all her money in the stock market crash) comes to town to announce that she is getting married and asks for a job for her fiancé.
