At Devon's Jolly Roger resort, Arlena Stuart Marshall openly cavorts with Patrick Redfern while her husband and Patrick's wife helplessly watch. Later Arlena's lifeless body is found in the sand at a nearby cove. The evidence seems to point to Arlena's husband as the murderer, but Hercule Poirot, who just happens to be on holiday at the tony hotel, doesn't settle for such an easy answer. Everyone is a suspect, and the evidence includes voodoo practices, drug-smuggling, religious mania, bank withdrawals, mysterious love letters, and two murders from the past.

Hercule Poirot is on a summer holiday at a beautiful seaside retreat in Cornwall - actually the hotel is on an island just off the coast. Yet he senses all is not as it seems. He overhears strands of conversations, and he watches the beautiful but somewhat incautious actress, Arlene Marshall, flirting with a young man even though both their spouses are present. When she is found strangled on the beach at nearby Pixie's Cove, her husband is the most obvious suspect. Poirot observes that little things seem to be happening which can't be explained and no one will own-up: a bottle flies out a window and someone takes a bath at lunchtime. He notes that bodies lying on a beach all seem the same. There's evil under the sun and there's no one better than HP to get to the bottom of it. I've seen at least one version on the screen, so I knew the ending, but it was still most enjoyable.
