Great Stories although Misleading Title

Truly great collection of murder mysteries from
arguably the best golden age detective author.

With Christmas approaching, I love to get into the winter mood with some chilling winter mysteries, but was a little disappointed that this is not really a themed collection. While all are very good, one is set in Palma De Mallorca so not very wintery!

That aside, a truly enjoyable set of short stories and fans of the genre will not be disappointed.

Disappointing

Just rather boring stories with an irritating female attempt at a Belgian accent. Couldn't finish it.

Gasp, gasp!

I LOVE the stories, Agatha Christie is an incredibly skilled writer, however, I struggled with the narrator taking big gasps of breath (particularly during stories featuring Poirot) it really distracted me from the story.
