Evil Under the Sun

For those of you who have read my last post, you know what today’s post is about: Evil Evil Under the SunUnder the Sun, one of Agatha Christie’s many novels. I have recently finished it and greatly enjoyed it. As one of the reviews says, and I quote, “Christie is a Queen of Crime. She drops her false leads so cunningly that few-if any-readers figure out who the villain is.”

In this story, Evil Under the Sun, we find Hercule Poirot, the Belgian detective, at a small seaside resort.  He has begun to enjoy, what he hopes will be, a peaceful vacation. However, when a young, retired, charming actress, who is staying at the hotel, is murdered, it is up to Poirot to find the villain. Could it be her husband, who is left $50,000? Or maybe her daughter, who resents her stepmother’s superior attitude? Perhaps one of the American gentlemen or the wife of the lovesick Patrick Redfern.

This is a great Agatha Christie novel and I highly advise you read it. Like I quoted before, “Christie is a Queen of Crime.”
