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.

Listener Opinions

    " This is a great book full of mystery in every passage. It is an amzing book and I recomend it to anyone who loves to be i suspense. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate | 2/14/2014

    " One of the best Hercule Poirot mysteries, with all the trimmings: a seaside resort, two spouses being cuckolded, a slightly violent young girl, weird old ladies, weirder Americans, a bizarre and unpredictable mystery. I listened to the recording by David Suchet and he's excellent with all the characters despite his long association with Poirot himself. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lady Knight | 1/29/2014

    " A nice, engaging mystery! It's been a while since I've really been drawn in by one of Christie's stories, and while the actual resolution to the mystery is a little contrived, this was a good read and Poirot is his usual semi-annoying yet utterly brilliant self. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Taylor | 1/27/2014

    " My first Agatha Christie book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristin | 1/21/2014

    " Excellent! Kept me thinking! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 1/15/2014

    " Great read, but as usual I was wrong about who the killer was. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lavinia | 1/11/2014

    " I saw the film before I read the book, but the book is much better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeffrey Marks | 1/1/2014

    " I look at this book as the other bookend to Death on the Nile, which is mentioned several times in this book. I can't say too much without going into spoilers, but it's a great book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Anamaria Elek | 12/15/2013

    " It took twoAgatha Christie novels for me to make sure I don't like her style at all. Throughout the book you haven't a clue about who the villain is, until the very last few pages when brilliant Mr. Poirot solves everything. It's annoying, in my opinion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Muditha | 11/24/2013

    " quite the mystery! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margot Jennifer | 11/2/2013

    " This is another favorite "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 10/6/2013

    " This was my first Agatha Christie and I was not blown away by it. It was worth reading, but I don't think I need to read another one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Umesh Kesavan | 8/20/2013

    " Very tough to decipher for the new readers of Christie.For Christie regulars,the "how" part will be a tough nut to crack but not the "who" part.A delightful read,nonetheless. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sonia Gomes | 8/9/2013

    " I cannot say that this is one of my favorite Agatha Christie, but the movie which I later saw was quite good, I like the part where the body with the spectacular beach hat was found, it was really so classy !! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bruce | 7/7/2013

    " One of my favorite Christie books so far. Good characters, complicated murder and I always like it when Poirot doesn't have that annoying Hastings hanging around. I suspected the right character, but had no idea how he/she had pulled it off with such an airtight alibi. This was a fun read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mandy | 6/15/2013

    " I loved this book! The twists and turns are amazing and totally unexpected. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tara Hall | 4/6/2013

    " Add a woman of Sin City character Ava quality ("Evil personified, according to the book), dope gangs, murder and witchcraft, and you get a very good novel! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annette Meier | 3/15/2013

    " WOW - too much drama build-up for the ending we got . . . story was good, but uncomfortable at times - must have been the point of it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Portia Costa | 3/6/2013

    " Another wonderful read. I'm hooked on Christie. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christopher Colegrove | 7/31/2012

    " On of the top 4 books with Hercule Poirot in! The culprit or culprits did it - but it doesn't seem possible - until Hercule Poirot explains! Good holiday classic for Hercule! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Miki | 7/31/2012

    " Cheesy perhaps, but very compelling "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pauline | 3/22/2012

    " The little grey cells were working well on this case. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zach | 3/17/2012

    " "Evil Under the Sun" was quite a puzzle, and its solution didn't disappoint. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris Morton | 2/16/2012

    " It was ok but by the end I thought that it was all a bit contrived. There again, what was I expecting? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Walter | 6/1/2011

    " Siempre sospecho demasiado de aquellos que no lo merecen. Pero así es Agatha Christie, nos lleva por el mal camino hasta que nos aclara quién fue el asesino. Excelente lectura! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 eyup | 5/25/2011

    " This is the very first Agatha Christie book I ever read. It will always remain dear to me as it started my absolute love for her writing. The story stumped me, I loved the writing and it was just a breath of fresh air after going on an Anne Rice reading spree prior. "
