    Still in the formative years of his career, Hercule Poirot faces a most taxing case: who killed Lord Cronshaw? Was Coco Courtenay's death on the same night a mere coincidence? And did she deliberately take an overdose of cocaine?

    Very intriguing, wonderfully crafted stories, narrated expertly by Hugh Frazer, the actual Captain Hastings of the TV series.

    So there I was, holed up in my office, trying to duck the bill collectors, when she walked in. She was the kind of sweet cookie that made your eyes water like you were hit with a 10-ton blackjack. She told me Raymond Chandler created the hard-boiled private eyes that rule American crime fiction, and this collection traces the genesis of Chandler's style in such stories as "Mandarin's Jade", "The Man Who Liked Dogs", and "Try the Girl".

    Story

    The collection are the stories that Farewell, my Lovely was stiched together from. Actually, if I hadn't read that first, this could have been a much better experience: the bleak atmosphere works all the same, but every storyline has a begininng, a middle and a decent ending. Elliott Gould is the perfect man for the job: although I knew most of the action, it was still worth listening to his interpretation.

    Recommended only if you are a trule Raymond Chandler fan _or_ if you haven't read yet Farewell, my lovely.

    Here is the famous first case that launched the legendary career of Hercule Poirot. Agatha Christie's brilliant and eccentric detective steps out of retirement and into the shadows of a classic mystery. The victim is a wealthy heiress. The suspects are her fortune-hunting husband, her jealous relatives, her hired companion, and others. The solution is a deadly scheme that can only be revealed by the master detective himself, Hercule Poirot.

    Wanda McCaddon was a bit hard to get used to after the perfect narration of Hugh Frazer. The story is really excellent, cerainly among the better Poirot novels

  • Curtain: Poirot's Last Case

    The house guests at Styles seemed perfectly pleasant to Captain Hastings. There was his own daughter, Judith; an inoffensive ornithologist called Norton; dashing Mr Allerton; brittle Miss Cole; Doctor Franklin and his fragile wife, Barbara; Nurse Craven; Colonel Luttrell and his charming wife, Daisy; and the charismatic Boyd-Carrington. So Hastings was shocked to learn from Hercule Poirot's declaration that one of them was a five-times murderer.

    Story

    One of the best Poirot stories -- masterfully narrated by Hugh Fraser, who also performed the narrating character in the David Suchet series. This is among the Agatha Christie books which are not only masterfully woven crime mysteries but also not without literary merits. It revolves around real ethical and moral dilemmas -- a relatively rare thing in murder mysteries.
