Like many story collections, this one is a bit uneven. Some of the stories are quite original and interesting, but others are a bit predictable. All are old-fashioned and charmingly nostalgic. Overall, a great short listen for Christie fans who enjoy her British way of looking at the world.
Isla Blair, Simon Vance, and Hugh Fraser are always delightful narrators, and this is no exception. I particularly liked Isla Blair, the lovely character actress whose talents are much in evidence with the female voices required in the first stories.
The stories are: The Edge, The Actress, While the Light Lasts, The House of Dreams, The Lonely God, Manx Gold, Within a Wall, The Mystery of the Spanish Chest, and The Harlequin Tea Set.

Would you listen to The Harlequin Tea Set and Other Stories again? Why?
Yes. I have enjoyed the mysterious character of Harley Quinn, and I enjoy Mr. Saitherwaite's fussiness.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
The work is a set of short stories. You are able to stop after each story, so no.
Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No, I listened to it while I was out walking, so I was motivated to walk each day until I finished. It gave me something to look forward to.
