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".

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
Yellow Iris
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
Magnolia Blossom

Therefore 3 stars
