Detective Hercule Poirot takes a holiday at an exclusive hotel on a tiny island to retreat from the stresses of his profession. The tranquil atmosphere is disrupted by the appearance of the charming Arlena Stuart who brings an indefinable erotic tension to the premise. When she is found strangled in a secluded cove, there are few, especially among the women, who feel either surprise or regret. With bewildering clues, Poirot is certain the solution lies with Arlena herself.

I adooooore Hercule Poirot!!!! He is definitely the book character that I love most. He is a super genius! I was surprised when I discovered the killers, although I felt very sorry for one of them at the beginning because... when you read the book you will know  I won't spoil anything for you guys, so you read the book and experience that beautiful suspense. I give this book 9/10 and I'm going to tell you something... reading Agatha Christie's books is a kind of magic. When you read one, you will want to read all of her books.

This is a very quick read; I never would have guessed who did it! The crime takes place while Hercule Poirot is supposed to be on vacation; and involves both the current murder and one from the past. I liked the interviews both local law enforcement and Poirot conduct with the suspects. It is rather devious the way Poirot sets up a test and tumbles to the truth; although I think he took a bit of a risk this time! Agatha Christie does it again!

Weak, preposterous ending. Slowly paced with a lot of dialogue.
