A pleasant surprise! (these stories aren’t ‘leftovers’) While Agatha Christie wrote some of the most amazing mystery tales of our time, (I’ve read and re-read them all at least twice), she was additionally quite capable of generating some really marginal ones (such as a few of of the Parker Pyne entries) when she was a little shy on cash. Such is NOT the case in this instance.

The Poirot novels are better Agatha Christie was certainly one of the best writers of detective novels–ever. And while the short stories in this collection are interesting, they fall short of the novels. The stories feel a bit sparse, particularly in the atmosphere, which Christie created so well in her novels.

early cases An average collection of books. Christie was not at fault for disliking this book however the reader will constantly be amazed at how christie manages to fool us over and over again. Like who is the mysterious ‘veiled lady’. Overall an entertaining read which keeps you guessing.
