Publisher's Summary

In one of London's most elegant shops, a decorative doll in green velvet adopts some rather human, and sinister, traits....

A country gentleman is questioned about a murder that has yet to be committed....

While summoning spirits, a medium is drawn closer to the world of the dead than she ever imagined possible....

In a small country church, a dying man's last word, sanctuary, becomes both an elegy and a clue to a crime.

Mix of Poirot, Miss Marple and stand-alone stories

Read by a variety of narrators, this short story collection has mostly short story mysteries and one of Christie's supernatural short stories. Overall, the short story mysteries were good and except for narrator Joan Hickson, were read well. Hickson's voice is hard to hear and has a lisp. I did not like the last story, The Last Seance which had a supernatural element to it.

Excellent!

I don't often give gleaming reviews, but I love Agatha Christie and the narrators were spectacular. This is a book I listen to again and again. Well worth the credit/money.

Mixed - Half Excellent, Half Mediocre

Narration quality is all excellent, but some of the stories themselves are just dumb. The one about the doll and the one about the medium are boring, but the rest are very good.

There are other, better, and longer collections with the same excellent narrators, but this will do once those are finished.
