"Hercule Poirot is enjoying a well-deserved holiday on Smugglers' Island off the coast of Devon until he finds himself caught up in a murder investigation. The beautiful bronzed body of glamorous actress Arlena Stuart lies facedown on the beach. But strangely, there is no sun and Arlena is not sunbathing. She's dead... strangles! 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." --From back of book

I adooooore Hercule Poirot!!!! He is definitely the book character that I love most. He is a super genius! I was surprised when I discovered the killers, although I felt very sorry for one of them at the beginning because... when you read the book you will know  I won't spoil anything for you guys, so you read the book and experience that beautiful suspense. I give this book 9/10 and I'm going to tell you something... reading Agatha Christie's books is a kind of magic. When you read one, you will want to read all of her books.

This is a very quick read; I never would have guessed who did it! The crime takes place while Hercule Poirot is supposed to be on vacation; and involves both the current murder and one from the past. I liked the interviews both local law enforcement and Poirot conduct with the suspects. It is rather devious the way Poirot sets up a test and tumbles to the truth; although I think he took a bit of a risk this time! Agatha Christie does it again!

Weak, preposterous ending. Slowly paced with a lot of dialogue.
