The classic Evil Under the Sun, one of the most famous of Agatha Christie’s Poirot investigations, has the fastidious sleuth on the trail of the killer of a sun-bronzed beauty whose death brings some rather shocking secrets into the light.
The beautiful bronzed body of Arlena Stuart lay face down on the beach. But strangely, there was no sun and Arlena was not sunbathing…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.
Reed's Mid-Day Reads is an adult book group that reads genre fiction, typically mysteries. We have been branching out to include other genres. Members read the book and discuss it at the meeting. We meet in the Carlin Room on the library's lower floor. No registration is necessary and books are available at the library one month prior to the meeting date.
