There's a body in a trunk; a dead girl's reflection is caught in a mirror; and one corpse is back from the grave, while another is envisioned in the recurring nightmare of a terrified eccentric. What's behind such ghastly misdeeds? Try money, revenge, passion, and pleasure. With multiple motives, multiple victims, and multiple suspects, it's going to take a multitude of talent to solve these clever crimes.
In this inviting collection, Agatha Christie enlists the services of her finest - Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple, and Parker Pyne - and puts them each to the test in the most challenging cases of their careers.

Short but sweet!
While this is a good collection of short mysteries, many of which have been dramatized for television quite successfully, I miss the more leisurely read of the longer Agatha Christie works.
The colorful worlds and characters she invites us into are too quickly gone leaving me feeling less satisfied at the end than I have been with others of her stories. Don't get me wrong, she still has the knack of writing a compelling short story but I guess I was left wanting more at the end of these.
Perhaps the best use of this book would be for someone looking for a short but fun diversion whilst on short car trips or for someone wanting a little "bedtime story". If that is your goal then you will most likely thoroughly enjoy these little peeks in to Agatha's creative mind.

I like the actors in the TV shows reading the books.
yes, just as good as the others
