2007: #77 – Evil Under the Sun (Agatha Christie)
Book #77 was Evil Under the Sun, a Hercule Poirot mystery from Agatha Christie. The back of the book reads:
Set at the Jolly Roger, a posh vacation resort for the rich and famous on the southern coast of England, Evil Under the Sun is one of Agatha Christieâ€™s most intriguing mysteries. When a gorgeous young bride is brutally strangled to death on the beach, only Hercule Poirot can sift through the secrets that shroud each of the guests and unravel the macabre mystery at this playground by the sea.
It’s hard to review classic authors such as Christie. To me, she’s a master of creating suspicion and changing your mind, only to create suspicion again. I really enjoy these.
