First there was the mystery of the film star and the diamond...then came the "suicide" that was murder...the mystery of the absurdly cheap flat...a suspicious death in a locked gun-room...a million dollar bond robbery...the curse of a pharoah's tomb...a jewel robbery by the sea...the abduction of a prime minister...the disappearance of a banker...a phone call from a dying man...and, finally, the mystery of the missing will.

What links these fascinating cases? Only the brilliant deductive powers of Hercule Poirot!

    "Wrong Reader, Good Stories"

    A good collection of stories, but beware if you're a fan of Hugh Fraser and don't listen to the preview before buying. This collection is actually read by David Suchet (Poirot in the TV series) and NOT Fraser.

    The stories themselves are good and varied, ideal to dip in and out of. Much less 'murder mystery' and more towards the Jewel heist type story than Christie's other books, but all are well written with satisfying endings. Recommended then, but again, listen to the preview before buying

    "Point Investigstes"

    A number of short stories with Point.

    Story
    "David Suchet IS Hercule Poirot"

    A faithful reading of the Poirot stories by the man himself - David Suchet. Very pleasant listening with humour and drama, even though I know the stories so well.

    A full cast recording would be the only improvement, but David Suchet's range of character interpretations was masterful.

    This I shall listen to again and again with equal enjoyment.

    Story
    "Not great on many levels."
    Would you try another book written by Agatha Christie or narrated by David Suchet?

    Wasn't keen on the narrations, especially that of Hastings who was irritating . Sound quality was poor compared to other recordings.


    If you’ve listened to books by Agatha Christie before, how does this one compare?

    Poorly.


    What aspect of David Suchet’s performance might you have changed?

    Better quality, better supporting cast.


    Any additional comments?

    Makes me realise how far we have come. I know casual racism was an accepted thing in older novels, even in Just William and John Buchan books. But this is the first time I have been offended by an Agatha Christie one where the constant reference to " chinks, orientals and slitty eyes " was common during one of the readings.

    Story
    "Suchet a wonder!"
    If you could sum up Poirot Investigates in three words, what would they be?

    Excellent Entertainment Extraordinary


    What did you like best about this story?

    The excellent charactisations of Suchet brings the personalities to life.


    What does David Suchet bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A true Poirot experience.


    Any additional comments?

    David Suchet portraits Poirot to a "T"! Fantastic work and the stories, as always, wonderful.
