Christie takes on the Greek hero The Labours of Hercules features Hercule Poirot deciding to solve a series of symbolic mysteries/puzzles referencing Hercules before he retires (again?). These puzzles take on myriad forms, from kidnapping to political scandal to theft to drugs to murder.

Loved these stories Loads of stories I’d never read before… short stories. There are 12 short stories; 1. The Nemean Lion, 2. The Lernean Hydra; 3, The Arcadian Deer, 4. THe Erymanthian Boar; 5. The Augean Stables; 6, The Stymphalean Birds; 7. The Cretan Bull; 8. The Horses of Diomedes; 9. The Girdle of Hypolita; 10. The Flock of Geryon; 11. The Apples of Hesperides; and 12. The Capture of Cerberus. I found that I like her short stories in that I could spend an hour or so of enjoyable reading…

Agatha Christie takes on Greek mythology This is one of Agatha Christie’s better offerings. There are 12 short stories, each one decidedly different from its predecessors. The characters are not a finely drawn as in her longer books, but the subject matter is interesting and each story moves at a quick pace. It is interesting to see the connection Dame Christie makes between Poirot and Hercules of Greek mythology. Poirot is definitely the triumphant winner. Sit back and enjoy a good yarn.Megan Antonucci
