A classic Agatha Christie short story, available individually for the first time on audio.
This electric short story begins in October on the island of Rhodes, a veritable paradise of privacy, beauty and calm, or so Hercule Poirot has imagined.
The reality is quite startlingly different. The idyll is disturbed by the arrival of famed Chanel beauty Valentine Chantry and a ripple of malice is felt across the island. Captivated by her wiles and immaculate good looks one young married man falters, closely watched by Valentine’s brooding husband and the watchful eye of Poirot.
Amidst the heady pink gins and close quarters Poirot senses that someone has murder in their heart, and he guesses right…
‘The plots are so good that one marvels … most of them would have made a full length thriller.’ Daily Mirror
