Publisher's Summary

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.

Another great BBC adaptation

What did you love best about Evil Under the Sun?

The performances were wonderful and the adaptation of the book very skillfully done.


What other book might you compare Evil Under the Sun to and why?

Any of the BBC recordings of Dame Agatha's books are worth a listen.


Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I love John Moffat as Hercule Poirot. He really captures his fussiness and intelligence.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

There is no vacation from evil.

Ending Too Absurd and Tired

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.
