By Christine Trent

Undertaker Violet Harper and her husband are attending the long-anticipated establishing of Egypt’s new Suez Canal, which has been masterminded through the bright French engineer, Ferdinand de Lesseps. Fireworks, galas, and canal cruises are all a part of the deliberate festivities at stops alongside the way.

Tensions abound around the a variety of ecu delegations in attendance. The Prussians, Dutch, French, British, Austrians, and Russians all have political grievances opposed to one another, made worse via inner struggles inside of Egypt itself.

All of this animosity is forgotten, even though, in the course of clinking glasses and deafening cheers. that's, until eventually a person dies in an unintended hearth in the course of a fireworks demonstration…or was once the blaze set to hide the loss of life of a possible blameless spectator? whilst she isn’t authorised to work out to the dressing of the corpse, Violet turns into suspicious.

As made up our minds to get to the evil root of the grisly affair as de Lesseps is to maintain it out of overseas newspapers, Violet starts off her personal refined research and fast realizes that there are extra suspects than there are sails on a royal yacht. was once the homicide due to the political jealousies? Or is a person carrying out a vendetta opposed to the good guy de Lesseps himself? finally, who didn’t have hatred for the French, whose overall mastery of the Suez Canal intended they'd be controlling canal transport for the foreseeable destiny?

When one other guy can also be came across murdered, it turns into noticeable that there are malevolent forces one of the revelers…who will cease at not anything to maintain Violet from researching the truth.
