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 – Naval Commander Tony Chantry. The second couple is Douglas Gold and his mousy wife, Marjorie. When Douglas Gold becomes infatuated with Valentine Chantry, jealousy leads – as Poirot predicted – to murder… This story has a nice setting, good characters and a good twist at the end.

"Triangle" became "Evil Under the Sun", but the originally short story is better and has some appealing characters. Fraser brings them all to life. He is particularly good at doing empty-headed women. The companion story, The Incredible Theft, is not so good. It's a rehash and lengthening of an earlier story and is a bit Conan Doyle-ish.

Great short story as a bedtime read. This story is set in the island of Rhodes where two couples meet and flirt with eachother and fall out and make friends again. Needless to say murder happens and the relationship between the two couples changes completely. Won't say anymore other than read for yourself as it is a good book and you want to put your feet up with a cuppa for half an hour or unable to get off to sleep.

Would recommend.

Did not realise this was such a short story - so was surprised when I realised it was a full-length "Poirot" on TV that I have seen a few times. Just goes to show - short or full-length - Christie's stories are excellent in any medium.

Entertaining. It was a good and quick read while I was waiting for an airplane. I don't think there was anything special to this book but I could not guess who the killer. Worth reading.

A short Agatha Christie story and exactly what I would expect. Now made into several different TV dramas over the years.
