Mailbox Monday – November 1st 2010

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.

Buy This Book From Amazon

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

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

  • Agatha Christie was one of the few authors who were well-represented in our village library when my mother took over as librarian. I read them at a very early age and have had no desire to re-read them. There are just too many books in existence that I haven’t read yet!

  • Hi Cathy,

    I haven’t actually read this particular book before. In the past I have read mostly from the Miss Marple series, not Poirot.

    Like yourself, I never re-read books. There just isn’t enough time for that, with all the great new books that are being published each and every day!

  • Hi Julie,

    Agatha Christie definitely has to be high up there as an all-time classic doesn’t she? and deservedly so in my opinion.

    Her books have been re-printed so often and there are still stars of stage and screen queueing up to play a part when Miss Marple or Hercule Poirot take to the screen, in yet another adaptation, that the enduring power of the lady cannot be denied.
