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

This story was first published in The Strand in 1936 and, in book form, included in, “Murder in the Mews,” in 1937. The themes in this story later became reworked as the novel, “Evil Under the Sun,” in 1940. However, this short story is certainly worth reading in its own right.
Poirot is on holiday in Rhodes, hoping for a relaxing time away from crime. There are only a few residents, including two new couples. The first is the five time married mode, Valentine Chantry, with her latest husband – N

We believe what we are lead to believe. So true. Christie really does understand the human race, doesn't she? Their twisted ideas, their ignorance and naivety. What a very clever, twisted crime. If not for Poirot, they would have gotten away. No one is too clever for our little Belgian.

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.

Recommends it for: Anyone; detective; mystery stories; who done it?
Poirot goes to an island off of the Italian coast, hoping to stay away from murder. He sees a love triangle play out before him and warns a party to leave the island. They do not and then a member of the triangle is murdered. Poirot explains everything to another vacationer who says he could have done something.

Who done it? (view spoiler)

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.

Short story previously published in Murder In The Mews.

Clever story. Some similarities to Evil Under the Sun but a completely different ending.

About the only one of hers I've thought was really bad. I never did understand how he knew beforehand. Usually she tells you how. This time it didn't make sense what she DID say.

Fun, quick, sleight-of-hand mystery. Exotic locale, unfortunately, it was not sufficiently incorporated into the story. Still Hercule is Hercule and the Dame is the Dame, 4 stars.

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....
