An exclusive hotel on a tiny picturesque island seems to be the ideal retreat for Hercule Poirot from the stresses of criminal detection. But with the appearance of the beautiful Arlena Stuart, the quiet and peaceful atmosphere becomes charged with an indefinable erotic tension. And when she is found viciously strangled in a secluded cove, there are few, especially among the women, who seem to feel either surprise or regret.
As Poirot follows a twisting path of bizarre and bewildering clues, his only certainties are that the solution lies within Arlena herself, and that there is evil under the sun.
John Moffat is Hercule Poirot in this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation with an all-star cast which includes Iain Glen, Fiona Fullerton, Robin Ellis, Wendy Craig, George Baker and Joan Littlewood.

The performances were wonderful and the adaptation of the book very skillfully done.
Any of the BBC recordings of Dame Agatha's books are worth a listen.
I love John Moffat as Hercule Poirot. He really captures his fussiness and intelligence.
There is no vacation from evil.
Having read Agatha Christie books as a juvenile, I didnt realize how tired and farfetched her plotlines were. John Moffat is excellent as always portraying Poirot, bit he cannot do anything about this absurd ending. Shame.
"Very good story"
Enjoyed listening to it very much. John Moffat is very good as Hercule Poirot. The other actors were good too.
I enjoyed listening to 'Evil Under the Sun' very much and it makes one feel that they are part of the story.
