Everyone I chat with, seems to be busy reading and reviewing Agatha Christie books just lately.
She is an author I used to read avidly as a teenager, but too long ago to talk with any authority about the individual books.
I volunteered for an extra shift at the hospice shop, Saturday morning and what sprang out from the bookshelves and caught my attention immediately, but this ‘Hecule Poirot’ adventure, from the great lady herself.
We get very few Agatha Christie books donated these days, as I would assume that she would be rather out of vogue with anyone under a certain age.
This copy is however, in immaculate condition, as it is a 2001 Agatha Christie Signature Edition, published by Harper.
Synopsis – Words are taken from the book…
“The beautiful bronzed body of Arlena Stuart lay face down on the beach. But strangely, there was no sun and Arlena was not sun-bathing….she had been strangled.
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”
All this great reading for the princely sum of 99p
