Agatha Christie’s exotic seaside mystery thriller now in an exciting new comic strip adaptation.
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?
Famed for her crime masterpieces, Agatha Christie’s books have become the best-selling in the world, appealing to readers young and old for their ingenious plots and immediately recognizable characters. The stories have also transcended the printed page, become bestselling audiobooks and award-winning films, plays and television series. Now words and pictures combine in an exciting new way of telling these stories – full-colour graphic novels which enhance the original stories and offer a completely new way of enjoying some of the world’s most popular and exciting mysteries.

“You can’t go wrong with this one”
“She springs her secret like a land mine”
Times Literary Supplement
“There is always room for more Agatha… These graphic adaptations dish up the quintessence of Christie. There are, in other words, lurid melodrama, plenty of weird and wonderful coincidences, lashings of period-perfect style and a thorough workout for the little grey cells.” Observer
“Agatha Christie is a classic of her genre. These are good stories. Now they can be accessed in different ways.” Times Educational Supplement
“Along with their brilliantly noirish covers, the books are intended to reinvigorate Christie’s murderous tales… Mixing their quintessentially English tales with a continental taste for comic books, the series will appeal to graphic novel fans who may not otherwise discover Agatha Christie’s most enduring stories.” Velocity MagazineAbout the Author:

The sun may be shining as the crowds enjoy the sand and the surf, but the famous detective is never off his guard. "There is evil everywhere under the sun," he says, and he is soon proved right when the body of famous actress Arlena Stuart is discovered on the beach. One of Agatha Christie's most famous mysteries, Evil Under the Sun was written in 1941, when the world was overshadowed by war, and the author fully intended to provide a bit of escapist fun. She set the mystery on the beautiful resort of Burgh Island off the Devon coast, a real-life location faithfully reproduced in Thierry Jollet's art. The book is part of a series that presents Christie's gripping mysteries as full-color graphic novels, adapted and illustrated by talented visual storytellers from France and Belgium. 46.
