From official release/information:
All her life, Jocelyn Shore has wanted to tour Egypt. After scrimping for years, the attractive high school teacher and her first cousin, Kyla Shore, embark on an Egyptian tour with WorldPal. While exploring the pyramids of Giza, one of Jocelyn's traveling companions, the nosy, pesky Millie Owens, is stabbed in the back of the neck. Soon afterwards, Jocelyn herself becomes the killer's target. With the help of Kyla and a dashing stranger, Allan Stratton, she manages to survive several attacks while endeavoring to unveil the killer's identity.
Product Description: Texas high school teacher Jocelyn Shore and her cousin Kyla are on a once-in-a-lifetime guided tour of Egypt with a motley crew of fellow travelers when the most odious of the bunch, a nosy, disagreeable woman named Millie Owens, takes a fatal fall off of one of the great pyramids. And that's only the beginning of their troubles.
From the jovial doctor haggling for trinkets he doesn't want to the mysterious impostor wearing someone else's clothing to the attractive stranger traveling alone, this group of tourists is carrying more than one kind of baggage. Add a mistaken identity, a priceless necklace, and another unexpected death, and Jocelyn finds herself reluctantly trying to unravel an intrigue that threatens to end not only her vacation, but her life.
