Publisher's Summary

In the title work in this collection of novellas, Poirot and Inspector Japp collaborate on the investigation of a suspicious suicide. The supernatural is said to play in the disappearance of top secret military plans in The Incredible Theft—an incredible claim, indeed, as Poirot will prove. The bullet that kills Gervase Chevenix-Gore shatters a mirror in Dead Man's Mirror—just the clue Poirot needs to solve the crime. And, while basking on white Mediterranean sands, Poirot stares trouble in the face—the beautiful face of Valentine Chantry, now celebrating her fifth marriage—in Triangle at Rhodes.

This title was previously published as Dead Man's Mirror.

Keep with it

Nigel Hawthorne is only the reader for the first story ("Murder in the Mews") and it is a good thing. His Poirot is horrible and there were several times during the story that I thought about returning the book because of the reader.

Luckily, Hugh Fraser reads the other three stories in the book and is, as usual, awesome!

Horribly Narated

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

This book is a great book but it is narrated horrible.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Agatha Christie books are classics and timeless.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

It ruined the whole book. The narrator only have three voices he can do with very little difference between the three.

Four short mysteries from Christie

The first short story in this audio book, Murder in the Mews, is narrated poorly by Nigel Hawthorne. The rest of the stories are wonderfully narrated by Hugh Fraser. Overall, I found them to be enjoyable quick listens.

Fine diversion, but not as good as usual

I am sad to say I didn't enjoy these 4 novellas as much as I usually enjoy Christie, but that was partly because of the narration. Off the bat that disappointed me in Murder in the Mews. And that crime had me fooled for a while, but I was on the right track by the time Poirot explained all. The other stories were a bit better in narration. I half solved the theft of the papers, and the had figured out the method of covering up the murder with the broken mirror, though I didn't peg down the full picture. The final case I did not care for at all, and while I knew at the time it was committed who the poisoner was, I did not at all grasp the grander scheme. They made an easy little diversion from my reading of late though, I think I just prefer Christie's longer mysteries. And I prefer the usual narrators to Mr. Hawthorne.
