The classic Evil Under the Sun, one of the most famous of Agatha Christie's Poirot investigations, has the fastidious sleuth on the trail of the killer of a sun-bronzed beauty whose death brings some rather shocking secrets into the light. The beautiful bronzed body of Arlena Stuart lay face down on the beach. But strangely, there was no sun and Arlena was not sunbathing…she had been strangled. Ever since Arlena's arrival the air had been thick with sexual tension. Each of the guests had a motive to kill her, including Arlena's new husband. But Hercule Poirot suspects that this apparent "crime of passion" conceals something much more evil.

Professional reviews

"Poirot attempts to get away from it all at the seaside, where he encounters Christie's usual international cast of characters. Since many of these eccentrics are stereotypes, David Suchet's wonderful rendering of the henpecked husband dutifully uttering "yes, darling"; the machine-gun verbal delivery of Westin; and the always volatile mix of English and Irish accents and temperaments all combine to surpass a straight reading. These delicious ingredients mix successfully with the complex story of the beautiful Arlena's murder and the many suspects who all possess motive, means, and opportunity, as Poirot cleverly reveals.
