October on the island of Rhodes is a veritable paradise of privacy, beauty, and calm—or so Hercule Poirot has imagined. The reality is quite different, as the arrival of famed Chanel beauty Valentine Chantry causes a ripple of malice to be felt across the island. She captivates at least one married man with her wiles and good looks, as her brooding husband watches on. Poir ...more

October on the Greek island of Rhodes is idyllic with fewer tourists taking in the sights of one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. The island offers sun bleached sands, the Temple of Apollo, archeological digs, and murder!

Hercule Poirot is enjoying time away from mysteries and investigations when Valentine Chantry, a femme fatale with a record of five marriages, is poisoned. Everyone on the island has taken note of the liason between Valentine and Douglas Gold, each married to another l
Why is it that whenever I make a prediction in the beginning I always turn out wrong? I dunno, it's just always been a pattern with the Agatha Christie Poirot novels and TV Series yet I don't mind, as long a my 'grey mass' is working inside of my head (I think Poirot is really starting to get to me, in a good way)

Hum, the way this story was set I was carefully running back and forth between the characetrs trying to understand who was honest and who wasn't, and I was wrong on my whole theory.

Short story previously published in Murder In The Mews.

Have read but don't really remember it. To be re-read.
Quick and clever read.
Triangle at Rhodes (Urlaub in Rhodos) [Mai]

23 Seiten

Poirot's hopes for a holiday from crime prove over-optimistic.

Poirot möchte Urlaub auf Rhodos machen und rutscht direkt wieder in einen Mord. Auf 23 Seiten kann ja nicht all zu viel passieren. Der Todesfall ist das Ende des einen Kapitels, die Lösung beginnt sofort im 1. Satz des nächsten Kapitels... Okay eine Kurzgeschichte aber absolut nicht Christie-Like...

Bekommt von mir leider nur 2/5 Lesezeichen.
Poirot shows that he understands affairs of the heart... he is not swayed by misdirection or red herrings; as an astute observer, he sees the triangle at Rhodes....
For a short story, it was pretty good. I realized after I've started I had watched the movie.

Watch the film adaptation with David Suchet instead. It's 100 times better.
