Publisher's Summary

A beautiful heiress has been found dead on a train. A playboy has been stabbed through the heart during a costume ball. An elderly woman suspects that she is being slowly poisoned to death. A prince fears for his reputation when his fiancée is embroiled in another man's murder. A forgotten recluse makes headlines after he is shot in the head.
Who but Agatha Christie could concoct such canny crimes? Who but Belgian detective Hercule Poirot could possibly solve them? It's a challenge to be met - in a triumph of detection.

An excellent listen

Classic Agatha Christie short stories with clever plots. What really sells this is the dramatic narration by David Suchet and Hugh Fraser. A delightful rainy day listen while knitting in stockinette--if the knitting is a complicated pattern you might drop a stitch or miss a clue!
