The young Egyptologist Rupert Winfield has escaped his family and career to become a tour guide on a Nile paddle steamer. The Great War is now a decade ago and will-heeled Europeans and Americans are once again flocking to Egypt to see the country's famous monuments.

For Winfield, his assembled party seems at first to be the usual ragbag of the ignorant, the racist, and the feckless, but he soon discovers that some the guests on board have rather more to them than meets the eye. Who exactly, he begins to wonder, is the mysterious Sebastian Printonm and why do accidents keep happening whenever he is around? And then there's the handsome, war-wounded doctor, from whom Winfield begins to feel more than just a passing interest - but even he, it seems, has his secrets.
