the original book has 4 more stories than this audiobook, hence the lowered rating. felt a bit cheated paying the price on this for half an audiobook.
otherwise, the narration is spectacular as usual and A.C. short stories are nothing if not breezy enjoyment on a Sunday afternoon.
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Hugh Fraser is an excellent reader. Unfortunately only four stories are included:
Problem at Pollensa Bay
The Second Gong
The Harlequin Tea Set
Be warned: the official book has four more stories which are NOT included.
The Regatta Mystery
The Love Detectives
Next to a Dog
Therefore 3 stars
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.

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.
