Summary

This collection of short stories from the undisputed Queen of Crime, perfectly illustrating the incredible breadth of the author’s talent; from sinister murder mysteries to light-hearted romances.

All great crime writers have their favourite creations. Similarly, every great sleuth has his, or her, own preferred method of deduction.

Take the charming Parker Pyne, who relies upon an intuitive knowledge of human nature to solve the Problem at Pollensa Bay. Or Mr Satterthwaite, who seeks inspiration through his collaboration with the enigmatic Mr Quin in The Harlequin Tea Set mystery. Then, of course, there’s Poirot, whose measured analysis of motive and opportunity is tested to the full in Yellow Iris, when he receives an anonymous call about a matter of life and death.

Mixture of Stories

Not quite what I expected, but perhaps my fault for not reading the description properly. But essentially a collection of very random stories...

Great narrator as always

Great narrator as always.
Not a fan of the Mr Quinn stories but fortunately there are only 2.

Rehash of old plots

Unfortunately though this seems at first to be a new set of stories they are mostly short reprises of full length novels and other short story collection - sparkling cyanide is replicated identically for example.

Great travelling companion

I did not enjoy some of the narrators - I would always recommend sampling before buying.

Problem at Pollensa Bay

Yet, again, brilliant collection of Agatha Christie short stories, easy to listen to and intriguing, as I'd not heard of them before it was a good fluke buy

Mixed tales, a wee bit different from standard Christie

Quite liked this collection, but immensely enlivened by Hugh Fraser’s narration. Perhaps wouldn’t have read them (almost certainly) or watched TV adaptations, but in Audiobook form they’re very passable entertainment.
