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.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Everybody needs a holiday—even brilliant Belgian detectives. But Hercule Poirot’s escape to England’s sunny Devon coast is interrupted when a vivacious actress is murdered on the grounds of his exclusive hotel. In classic Agatha Christie style, Poirot’s “little grey cells” are put to the test by a colorful cast of potential suspects, each with their own motives, alibis, and secrets. One of Dame Agatha’s most effortlessly charming mysteries, 1941’s Evil Under the Sun kept us guessing until the very end.

I'm about half way in the book and I love it. The vocabulary is extraordinary and it is very detailed. I'm reading the physical copy and was very pleased to know that it is here too. Overall, great book even if I didn't read the whole book.
Best book ever
The only reason I guess who did it was because everyone said the murderer was the person you least expected it to be.
