Publisher's Summary

It had been a typical New Year's Eve party. But as midnight approaches, Mr. Satterthwaite - a keen observer of human nature - senses that the real drama of the evening is yet to unfold. And so it proves when a mysterious stranger knocks on the door. Who is this Mr. Quin?
Mr. Satterthwaite's new friend is an enigma. He seems to appear and disappear almost like a trick of the light. In fact, the only consistent thing about him is that his presence is always an omen - sometimes good, but sometimes deadly....

After I caught on! Or did I?

I love these stories, and actually listen to them more than once, because I'm sure I
missed a clue, same as poor Mr. Satterthwaite .

Luckily, he gets some mysterious help!

Can't tell you more, but get it and
listen, you won't be disappointed!

Different

My enjoyment of the stories varied. Some were fantastic. Others just sat there. Thus the 4. Mr. Quin is a bit magical. His powers include knowing when a young lover needs his special help, and showing up to direct Mr. Satterthwaite. They do not include knowing the key to the mystery (I don't think), so the detection in the story is not ruined.

My favorite was The Man from the Sea
