SynopsisTheodore Shimmer is a businessman, smuggler, blackmailer and crook - a man who easily attracts enemies - and many of them seem to have been invited onto 'The Smug Juggler' for a Nile cruise. There's the fading film-star, the debt-ridden gambler, the dodgy doctor and the business rival. No surprise, then, that Theodore Shimmer is found dead. However, the manner of his death is more of a surprise. (Fans of this genre will be led to thinking that they are witnessing a cross between 'Death on the Nile' and 'Murder on the Orient Express' - only to be taken in by the author's cunning plot twist!)
