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.

The fact that it takes Poirot almost two chapters to explain the how and the who of the murder pretty much says it all. Too many new facts are thrown in at the end, as if Christie couldn't come up with an ending.
David Suchet does an excellent job as the narrator.
No, but he is great. Excellent job of change of voice as well as being able to put "personality" into the characters. Best I've listened to.
I am an eclectic person who loves to learn.
I have already listened to this book twice. There is such beautiful details that it is always intriguing. Hercule Poroit is my favorite character that Agatha Christie writes about. David Suchet does the voices of every character so wonderfully that you forget it is just him reading.
As usual Agatha's twists keep you going until the end. Hercule Poroit never tells you everything and his character is so quirky and enjoyable. The characters are so rich and developed that you feel like you really know the people she writes about.
Fantastic voices and brings every character to life. Such a joy to listen to him perform.
David Suchet's excellent performance of all the characters really brought the story to life.
I really enjoyed the lead-up to the murder, meeting all the characters and finding out all the motives people might have.
He has a wonderful knack of creating believable and individual voices for each character and has a very light touch with the more humorous bits.
No, I wanted to savor it.
Hercules Poirot! Nobody can beat him!
His impersonation of the characters and Poirot's voice are untouchable.
