Publisher's Summary

All great crime writers have their favourite creations. Similarly, every great sleuth has his, or her, own preferred method of deduction. Take the charming Parker Pyne, who relies upon an intuitive knowledge of human nature to solve the "Problem at Pollensa Bay". Or Mr Satterthwaite, who seeks inspiration through his collaboration with the enigmatic Mr Quin in "The Harlequin Tea Set" mystery. Then, of course, there's Poirot, whose measured analysis of motive and opportunity is tested to the full in "Yellow Iris", when he receives an anonymous call about a matter of life and death.

Rehash of old plots

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.

Mixed tales, a wee bit different from standard Christie

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.
