    I have had so many strike outs lately that I needed a sure thingHello AggieThe wily old bird has done it again The besauch who gets murdered on the beach was so aggressively unlikable that I didn't really care who killed her but it was fun to tromp around with my boy Poirot as he figured it outFive stars I feel like I can breathe again

    Hercule Poirot is just fun Agatha Christie is clever and intriguing I've been fascinated by her stories since I was a teenager Evil Under the Sun is a great story not uite her best but certainly in the top 10 After reading the book I watched the movie adaption given some of the actors playing the roles You should read and then watch too who doesn't love to compare This story is good lots of little twists and turns The plot is a bit macabre There are several angles you think it will take In the end I was close to figuring it out but only because I've read hundreds of mysteries at this point A good start for a new Poirot reader About Me For those new to me or my reviews here's the scoop I read A LOT I write A LOT And now I blog A LOT First the book review goes on Goodreads and then I send it on over to my WordPress blog at where you'll also find TV Film reviews the revealing and introspective 365 Daily Challenge and lots of blogging about places I've visited all over the world And you can find all my social media profiles to get the details on the whowhatwhenwhere and my pictures Leave a comment and let me know what you think Vote in the poll and ratings Thanks for stopping by Note All written content is my original creation and copyrighted to me but the graphics and images were linked from other sites and belong to them Many thanks to their original creators

    Hercule Poirot was minding his own business taking vacation in a high class resort in the Southern England As anybody even slightly familiar with his books knows where Poirot goes crime usually murder follows Thus a very practical advice is in order if you see Poirot somewhere run away from that place fast or risk becoming another victim In any way a woman in strangled it was very obvious from the first page who would be the victim and it was done in such a way that it was physically impossible for anybody to do it On the other hand the motives were plenty blackmail jealousy envy drugs and some In other words only Hercule Poirot would be able to untangle the mystery Luckily he was present from the beginning and saw the developments as soon as they started This was one of the better stories having all the clues in the open but complicated enough to be puzzling in the best traditions of Agatha Christie I wonder how many people were able to figure it out I saw a movie first which means I was given a solution before I have time to analyze what is going on In any way the characters are great the mystery is even better and there is some excitement to be found on practically every page This is not exactly 5 stars because of some obscure clues present; still it is worth firm 4 stars and is not boring even during the reread when you remember some details

    I really enjoyed this book and it was so close to 5 stars but in the end I settled on a very solid 4 stars ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️Maybe in the morning or Boxing DayWell here we are on New Year's Eve and I now have two reviews to write before donning my DJ and heading off this evening with my friendsOh yes the book now a number of people have commented that this bears a remarkable similarity to a Christie short story hmm my memory must be going 🤔 andor that other people have copied the basic premise that this story is based upon again a complete blank here well regardless of those comments I really enjoyed itIn my mind's eye I can see Poirot Suchet dressed up to the nines laying in the sun on the beach whilst other people uncover almost 50% of their bodies to the sun how outrageous That said this book has than just amusing anecdotes or asides it has a gripping involvedconvoluted story that leaves you wondering who and how it could've been doneBeing set on an island joined only by a causeway at low tide means there are really only a finite number of suspects and each seems to have at least a modicum of an alibi Needless to say Poirot exercises his little grey cells to the max and unravels the complex mystery in front of our eyesI do remember the David Suchet episode vaguely and think that the TV adaptation uite closely follows this wonderful enjoyable book I am now nearing the 23rds mark in the 3 year Poirot challenge and I'm only one behind and I have to say that I am thoroughly enjoying it and know already that I shall be bereft when we finish this challenge what am I going to do ??

    Even on a holiday Poirot finds himself in middle of a murder mystery It appears that it is destined that this Belgian cannot have a peaceful holiday The plot is brilliant for the way in which the woman is murdered and alibi for the culprit Unlike other Poirot novels there are three strong suspects and when at the end with a flourish Poirot unravels the plot and rising to the challenge of the murderer makes him confess you are left satisfied at the justice delivered Interesting read

    Lazy summer days are here One of my favorite parts of summer is lounging with a thriller or mystery and spending an entire day reading to see whodunit As I wait rather impatiently for my library to process new books by my favorite contemporary mystery and detective writers I went to my old fall back Dame Agatha Christie Even as I read and of her mysteries and am beginning to sense a formula there is no mystery writer who holds my attention than the ueen of Crime Imagining David Suchet as Poirot on television I return once again to a case featuring the Belgian mustachioed detective Even Hercule Poirot needs a vacation It is the height of summer and he finds himself at the Jolly Roger Hotel on Smuggler’s Island The hotel is a cross between a resort with amenities and a bed and breakfast and the guests soon fall into a relaxed routine of bathing boating tennis and all the other activities one would find on at a luxurious hotel The Jolly Roger has developed uite the reputation as guests from various stations of life find themselves there on a holiday Poirot is the most recognizable and initially other guests ask him if he is there to work but alas he like the others is just there on a vacation He cautions however that there is always evil under the sun and one should look no further than the myriads of beach bathers one body could easily be swapped for another; it is row upon row of happy sun tanners and swimmers With his premonition of evil Poirot foreshadows that something will happen it is just a matter of when Just as Poirot forecasted Arlena Stuart is found murdered A harlot Stuart is a magnet for men and has had the reputation of breaking up marriages In the heat of summer Poirot sensed that Stuart was about to work her evil ways again Although married to Kenneth Marshall Stuart had her eyes on Patrick Redfern a newly married man who was enjoying a holiday with his wife Christine Both Mrs Redfern and Captain Marshall grew aggravated and frustrated with Arlena’s actions but Arlena while dim witted and not pleasant for women to be around moved uickly from one man to another Patrick Redfern was her catch of the moment creating a tension on the island resort that was supposed to be a relaxing holiday When Stuart is found strangled on the beach all motives point to a frustrated Kenneth Marshall or perhaps to Christine Redfern or perhaps another of Stuart’s disappointed male conuests It is up to Poirot to get to the root of the evil afoot In many other of Christie’s cases Poirot is asked to assist local authorities in solving the case Here he just so happened to be vacationing at the scene of the crime and knew the hotel guests so the police on the case were all too happy to let Poirot take the lead As has been the case in all the other Poirot cases I have read his ability to use his little grey cells has him a step ahead of other detectives Here his heavy sleuthing is not necessary The case is straight forward Poirot uestions the hotel guests about their alibis and surmises that only one person could possibly be guilty until that person has an ironclad alibi Poirot as times is found lost in thought and does get creative in his methodology fitting all the pieces of the puzzle together to solve the case He wins the approval of American guests Mr and Mrs Gardener who I found charming saving the day once again allowing guests to enjoy the rest of their holiday I am sure I will read mysteries before the summer is through They are uick whodunnits and a fun escape from the rigors of the grind of life Even though Poirot is my favorite detective character I am starting to catch on to Christie’s formula and might need a break from the Belgian sleuth next time around Thankfully Christie has also given the world Miss Marple and there are still plenty of cases of both detectives that I have not read yet Until next time case solved 35 stars

    What better way to spend a holiday afternoon than reading an Agatha Christie novel Miss Marple or Hercule Poirot it does not matterEvil Under the Sun is Poirot and the little man is on holiday too His holidays are always like work though as he always seems to discover murdered bodies wherever he goes This one is a beautiful woman on a beach and there are plentiful suspects among the hotel guestsChristie throws in red herrings aplenty and I completely swallowed one of them and came nowhere near guessing the murderer as a result Maybe my brain was on holiday too Who cares It was a light entertaining and totally enjoyable read

    425 stars I was just recommending this book to a friend in another Agatha Christie thread and noticed that I had only rated this 3 stars What the heck self? I’m not really a big Poirot fan but this was an excellent murder mystery with a particularly intricate and twisty resolutionThe setting is an expensive exclusive vacation resort in Devon on the coast of southern England Besides Hercule Poirot there are only about a dozen guests at the hotel The victim one of the hotel guests a flirtatious newlywed woman who is found dead on an isolated beach in a cove strangled to death Whodunnit? There’s a pretty good 1982 movie version of this book starring Peter Ustinov as Poirot
