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. Poirot senses that someone has murder in their heart, and he guesses right. As things come to a tragic head, only Poirot the quiet observer can piece together what has happened in this lover’s triangle.

great story I had not read this one in a while and I enjoyed this one. It always got me how many times Poirot told the murderer to leave the island. In the end I she kind of seemed to have realized why she needed to leave. But of course she did not listen as most people often do. Agatha Christie has a way of showing you that maybe we all need to listen when someone tells us something. It just might be for our own good.

Agatha at Amazon It is amazing how Agatha Christie continues to mesmerise her fans no matter how short or long her stories are, or how often she repeats her scenarios or promulgates her pompous, imperialist and sometimes sexist convictions. And like all addicts, no matter how I rankle under the side effects, I have to have more and more Agatha so Amazon’s offerings of stand-alone short stories are handy hits.

A rarity: TV episode better than this original version In general, when one compares a movie or TV adaption to the original published story or novel, the video version suffers in comparison. Not so in this case. The script of the TV version (starring David Suchet) is so vastly superior to Christie’s original short story (this item) that I can give this only 3 miserly stars.The TV version is available also on DVD and streaming.
