Summary

How did a woman holding a pistol in her right hand manage to shoot herself in the left temple? What was the link between a ghost sighting and the disappearance of top secert military plans? How did the bullet that killed Sir Gervase shatter a mirror in another part of the room? And who destroyed the "eternal triangle" of love involving renowned beauty, Valentine Chantry? Hercule Poirot is faced with four mystifying cases, "Murder in the Mews", "The Incredible Theft", "Dead Man's Mirror", and "Triangle at Rhodes", each a miniature classic of characterisation, incident, and suspense.

also includes Hugh Fraser

Only the first story is read by Nigel Hawthorne. Which is just as well, as, in my opinion, his Poirot characterisation is absolutely atrocious and at times the accent sounded more German than anything else. It was most distracting. Thankfully the other stories were read by the always-excellent Hugh Fraser.



The running order is as follows -

Murder in the Mews

The Incredible Theft

Dead Man's Mirror

Triangle at Rhodes

Great stories

Very entertaining and gripping short stories.
Hugh Fraser is reading the last three and I prefer him to Nigel Hawthorne (who does a good job but not as good as Hugh). I really enjoyed this Audible book.
