Death on Tour, by Janice Hamrick

This book won the Mystery Writers of America First Crime Novel Award, and I see why.  Hamrick did a great job with her Egyptian setting, a medium-end tour of Egypt; the hapless, gauche, annoying and friendly folks on tour; and the relations between the cousins, Jocelyn and Kyla.  The plotting was careful and the herrings suitably red.  Maybe I need to take a tour of Egypt some March.
