Volume 37 in the Agatha Christie Collection (1941) Limited edition of 800 copies worldwide
It was not unusual to find the beautiful bronzed body of the sun-loving Arlena Stuart stretched out on a beach, face down. Only, on this occasion, there was no sun… she had been strangled.
Ever since Arlena’s arrival at the resort, Hercule Poirot had detected sexual tension in the seaside air. But could this apparent ‘crime of passion’ have been something more evil and premeditated altogether?

Hercule Poirot is enjoying a well-deserved break on Smuggler's Island and, through habit, paying close attention to his fellow holidaymakers. When glamorous actress Arlena Stuart is found strangled on the beach of a small out-of-the-way cove Poirot becomes embroiled in a murder investigation. With his clever and methodical questioning he discovers that nearly all the guests have connections to Arlena. But which of these suspects, including her family, felt strongly enough about Arlena Stuart to kill her?
