From the Back Cover
The tranquillity of a cruise along the Nile was shattered by the discovery that Linnet Ridgeway had been shot through the head. She was young, stylish, and beautiful. A girl who had everything . . . until she lost her life.
Hercule Poirot recalled an earlier outburst by a fellow passenger: "I'd like to put my dear little pistol against her head and just press the trigger." Yet in this exotic setting nothing is ever quite what it seems.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Then, when Linnet is found dead shot through her head, (and with Jakie's initial written with blood on the wall) of course de Bellefort is the first suspected. Luckily, Poirot is also onboard Karnak, and so it is up to him to solve this mystery.
As always, Christie's novels has a lot of twists, and some clues were not given till the end, which makes it extremely hard to solve. But I still liked the book because it is very cleverly written and I was very curious as to who killed Linnet Ridgeway (and some other people). I liked this book a lot, and I totally recommend it to anybody who wants a book that keeps you turning pages and working your brains at the same time.
Linnet Ridgeway, the victim, is wealthy, young, and beautiful. She is used to having her way, so when she falls in love with her best friend Jackie's fiancé (named Simon), trouble is in the air. Simon soon realizes that he loves Linnet more than Jackie, and marries her instead.
On their honeymoon, a cruise on the Nile, Jackie is on board, and ready for revenge. So when Linnet is found dead in her bed one morning, it is obvious who did it. But it was impossible for Jackie to have killed her, since she had people with her the entire night. Hercule Poirot, the detective, has to find the answers to several questions to solve this mystery. Did an attempted murder that occurred earlier have anything to do with this one? Why did the murderer throw something overboard? Why is Linnet's business guardian so secretive about the forms he wants her to sign? Do Linnet's missing pearls have anything to do with it? He must use his intelligence, intuition, and interviewing skills to solve the crime. Can he prove who did it?
This book was a little slow-moving before the murder was committed, but I liked it because of its challenging reading level, the exciting storyline, and the surprise ending.
this book is the only agatha christy book i have been able to figure out. in all her books its the little ideas in the back of your mind that just cant be right that turns out to be the truth. i plan to finish the series by the end of the year. this and the murder of rodger ackroyd are my two favorites. i would highly recomend this book!!!!
