    Hercule Poirot was minding his own business taking vacation in a high class resort in the Southern England As anybody even slightly familiar with his books knows where Poirot goes crime usually murder follows Thus a very practical advice is in order if you see Poirot somewhere run away from that place fast, or risk becoming another victim In any way, a woman in strangled it was very obvious from the first page who would be the victim and it was done in such a way that it was physically i Hercule Poirot was minding his own business taking vacation in a high class resort in the Southern England As anybody even slightly familiar with his books knows where Poirot goes crime usually murder follows Thus a very practical advice is in order if you see Poirot somewhere run away from that place fast, or risk becoming another victim In any way, a woman in strangled it was very obvious from the first page who would be the victim and it was done in such a way that it was physically impossible for anybody to do it On the other hand, the motives were plenty blackmail, jealousy, envy, drugs, and someIn other words, only Hercule Poirot would be able to untangle the mystery Luckily he was present from the beginning and saw the developments as soon as they started This was one of the better stories having all the clues in the open but complicated enough to be puzzling in the best traditions of Agatha Christie I wonder how many people were able to figure it out I saw a movie first which means I was given a solution before I have time to analyze what is going on In any way, the characters are great, the mystery is even better, and there is some excitement to be found on practically every page This is not exactly 5 stars because of someobscure clues present still it is worth firm 4 stars and is not boring even during the reread when you remember some details

    I really enjoyed this book and it was so close to 5 stars, but in the end I settled on a very solid 4 stars Maybein the morning or Boxing Day.Well here we are on New Year s Eve and I now have two reviews to write, before donning my DJ and heading off this evening with my friends.Oh yes, the book, now a number of people have commented that this bears a remarkable similarity to a Christie short story hmm my memory must be going and or that other people have copied the basic prem I really enjoyed this book and it was so close to 5 stars, but in the end I settled on a very solid 4 stars Maybein the morning or Boxing Day.Well here we are on New Year s Eve and I now have two reviews to write, before donning my DJ and heading off this evening with my friends.Oh yes, the book, now a number of people have commented that this bears a remarkable similarity to a Christie short story hmm my memory must be going and or that other people have copied the basic premise that this story is based upon again, a complete blank here , well regardless of those comments I really enjoyed it.In my mind s eye I can see Poirot Suchet dressed up to the nines laying in the sun on the beach whilst other people uncover almost 50% of their bodies to the sun how outrageous That said this book hasthan just amusing anecdotes or asides, it has a gripping involved convoluted story that leaves you wondering who and how it could ve been done.Being set on an island joined only by a causeway at low tide, means there are really only a finite number of suspects and each seems to have at least a modicum of an alibi Needless to say Poirot exercises his little grey cells to the max and unravels the complex mystery in front of our eyes.I do remember the David Suchet episode vaguely , and think that the TV adaptation quite closely follows this wonderful enjoyable book I am now nearing the 2 3rds mark in the 3 year Poirot challenge and I m only one behind and I have to say that I am thoroughly enjoying it, and know already that I shall be bereft when we finish this challenge what am I going to do

    Even on a holiday Poirot finds himself in middle of a murder mystery It appears that it is destined that this Belgian cannot have a peaceful holiday The plot is brilliant for the way in which the woman is murdered and alibi for the culprit Unlike other Poirot novels, there are three strong suspects and when at the end with a flourish Poirot unravels the plot and rising to the challenge of the murderer makes him confess, you are left satisfied at the justice delivered Interesting read

    Lazy summer days are here One of my favorite parts of summer is lounging with a thriller or mystery and spending an entire day reading to see whodunit As I wait rather impatiently for my library to process new books by my favorite contemporary mystery and detective writers, I went to my old fall back Dame Agatha Christie Even as I readandof her mysteries and am beginning to sense a formula, there is no mystery writer who holds my attentionthan the Queen of Crime Imagining Lazy summer days are here One of my favorite parts of summer is lounging with a thriller or mystery and spending an entire day reading to see whodunit As I wait rather impatiently for my library to process new books by my favorite contemporary mystery and detective writers, I went to my old fall back Dame Agatha Christie Even as I readandof her mysteries and am beginning to sense a formula, there is no mystery writer who holds my attentionthan the Queen of Crime Imagining David Suchet as Poirot on television, I return once again to a case featuring the Belgian, mustachioed detective Even Hercule Poirot needs a vacation It is the height of summer and he finds himself at the Jolly Roger Hotel on Smuggler s Island The hotel is a cross between a resort with amenities and a bed and breakfast, and the guests soon fall into a relaxed routine of bathing, boating, tennis, and all the other activities one would find on at a luxurious hotel The Jolly Roger has developed quite the reputation as guests from various stations of life find themselves there on a holiday Poirot is the most recognizable, and initially other guests ask him if he is there to work but alas he like the others is just there on a vacation He cautions, however, that there is always evil under the sun, and one should look no further than the myriads of beach bathers one body could easily be swapped for another it is row upon row of happy sun tanners and swimmers With his premonition of evil, Poirot foreshadows that something will happen, it is just a matter of when Just as Poirot forecasted, Arlena Stuart is found murdered A harlot, Stuart is a magnet for men and has had the reputation of breaking up marriages In the heat of summer, Poirot sensed that Stuart was about to work her evil ways again Although married to Kenneth Marshall, Stuart had her eyes on Patrick Redfern, a newly married man who was enjoying a holiday with his wife Christine Both Mrs Redfern and Captain Marshall grew aggravated and frustrated with Arlena s actions, but Arlena, while dim witted and not pleasant for women to be around, moved quickly from one man to another Patrick Redfern was her catch of the moment, creating a tension on the island resort that was supposed to be a relaxing holiday When Stuart is found strangled on the beach, all motives point to a frustrated Kenneth Marshall or perhaps to Christine Redfern or perhaps another of Stuart s disappointed male conquests It is up to Poirot to get to the root of the evil afoot In many other of Christie s cases, Poirot is asked to assist local authorities in solving the case Here, he just so happened to be vacationing at the scene of the crime and knew the hotel guests, so the police on the case were all too happy to let Poirot take the lead As has been the case in all the other Poirot cases I have read, his ability to use his little grey cells has him a step ahead of other detectives Here, his heavy sleuthing is not necessary The case is straight forward Poirot questions the hotel guests about their alibis and surmises that only one person could possibly be guilty, until that person has an ironclad alibi Poirot as times is found lost in thought and does get creative in his methodology, fitting all the pieces of the puzzle together to solve the case He wins the approval of American guests Mr and Mrs Gardener, who I found charming, saving the day once again, allowing guests to enjoy the rest of their holiday I am sure I will readmysteries before the summer is through They are quick whodunnits and a fun escape from the rigors of the grind of life Even though Poirot is my favorite detective character, I am starting to catch on to Christie s formula, and might need a break from the Belgian sleuth next time around Thankfully, Christie has also given the world Miss Marple, and there are still plenty of cases of both detectives that I have not read yet Until next time, case solved 3.5 stars
