    I have had so many strike outs lately that I needed a sure thingHello Aggie The 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 out.Five stars I feel like I can breathe again

    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 Maybein the morning or Boxing Day.Well 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 friends.Oh 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 and or that other people have copied the basic prem 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 Maybein the morning or Boxing Day.Well 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 friends.Oh 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 and or 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 it.In 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 hasthan just amusing anecdotes or asides, it has a gripping involved convoluted story that leaves you wondering who and how it could ve been done.Being 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 eyes.I do remember the David Suchet episode vaguely , and think that the TV adaptation quite closely follows this wonderful enjoyable book I am now nearing the 2 3rds 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

    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 i 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 someIn 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 someobscure clues present still it is worth firm 4 stars and is not boring even during the reread when you remember some details

    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

    Nowadays, no one believes in evil It is considered, at most, a mere negation of good Evil, people say, is done by those who know no better who are undeveloped who are to be pitied rather than blamed But, M Poirot, evil is real It is a fact I believe in Evil as I believe in Good It exists It is powerful It walks the earth He stopped His breath was coming fast He wiped his forehead with his handkerchief and looked suddenly apologetic I m sorry I got carried away Rev LanePoir Nowadays, no one believes in evil It is considered, at most, a mere negation of good Evil, people say, is done by those who know no better who are undeveloped who are to be pitied rather than blamed But, M Poirot, evil is real It is a fact I believe in Evil as I believe in Good It exists It is powerful It walks the earth He stopped His breath was coming fast He wiped his forehead with his handkerchief and looked suddenly apologetic I m sorry I got carried away Rev LanePoirot 23 take place at the Jolly Roger resort The startling man magnet of the summer is former actress Arlena Stuart who, soon after things get under way, is found lying face down on the beach And everyone has had a reason to kill her Women hate her, especially the wives of men who follow Arlena, drooling Men like Patrick Redfern, married to poor Christine who has to stand by humiliated while her husband spends all of his time sneaking around with Arlena So Arlena s husband has a good reason to kill her, too Is this a case of turning the tables on a femme fatale Arlena s step daughter is studying witchcraft There s been others strangled in the area in the past few years Is it in fact evil that exists under the sun Fortunately Hercule Poirot is also vacationing at the Jolly Roger, eh wot What a coincidence But no joke, there s a satisfying resolution to this mystery, well done.The quotation I opened with has Rev Lane focusing on evil, but then there is, not surprisingly, given the title, a lot of musing about evil, even from Poirot I hadn t seen it very often in Christie I thought it might have to do with the word coming in fashion around the world because of Hitler the book was published in 1941 But Christie avoids direct references to politics in her writing, usually She s writing entertainments But her commentary on evil is actually a feminist point, which I will only hint at because it is a little spoilerish She through Poirot wants to make a commentary about what people assume about very beautiful people such as Arlena being bad or even evil because they look or dress in a certain way I liked that part of the resolution a lot, actually.This is a slightly higher rated Poirot than others on Goodreads, I see, and I agree with that assessment I liked this one quite a bit
