Publisher's Summary

It was not unusual to find the beautiful bronzed body of the sun-loving Arlena Stuart stretched out on a beach, face down. Only, on this occasion, there was no sun...she had been strangled. Ever since Arlena's arrival at the resort, Hercule Poirot had detected sexual tension in the seaside air. But could this apparent "crime of passion" have been something more evil and premeditated altogether?

David Suchet is fantastic

The delivery and performance is absolutely spot on. It's not one of Christie's best works but Suchet makes it worth a listen. Slow in places but a good afternoon listen.

OK

Shame Hugh Fraser hadn’t narrated this. I haven’t seen more than a few minutes in passing of the TV adaptations with David Suchet and HF, so I don’t have any preconception that HF is “only” the dim stooge to DS.
DS makes many voices comic, exaggerated, even for light fiction like this. Still I don’t like much of the current ultra-violent crime fiction, especially as bedtime listening. Far better a sanitised assassination of an unpleasant person with a minimum of gore.
