"Death on the Nile" by Agatha Christie is, like most of Christie's mysteries, a 'cozy.' Even though there is much bloodshed, the bullet holes are small. The shed blood is minimal. Poirot is on vacation and has purchased a ticket for a week-long cruise on a stretch of the Nile. It's the mid-'30s. The passengers are few. Between them, they keep several plots going. If you've seen the movie or TV versions, then the terrorist/agitator plot will be new to you. The jewel thief plot is a bit better known. And, then there is the bodies-every-where plot that drives 'Death on the Nile.' The solution seems quite fantastic. But, the whole voyage is quite delightful.
