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.

AC's short stories often are some of her best, and these are no exception. David Suchet narrates all but one, I think. He is so outstanding. IMHO, this is a must listen for all Christie fans,
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!
the flow of the stories in such a short amount of time.Keeps my interest whil exercising
the length of each of the stories and not miss details to solve the crime
the character's attitude and social standings in the narrative
