Publisher's Summary

So far, it had been a typical New Year's Eve house party. But Mr. Satterthwaite, a keen observer of human nature, sensed that the real drama of the evening was yet to unfold. So it proved when a mysterious stranger arrived after midnight. Who was this Mr. Quin? And why did his presence have such a pronounced effect on Eleanor Portal, the woman with the dyed-black hair?

    "Better to read than listen"

    For some reason, this collection of stories is much better read than listened. I would recommend picking up the book instead.

    Hugh Fraser is wonderful as always but the stories have too much detail that even a moment of inattention ruins it.

    Love having someone read me a story. Fires in the hearth, rain on the roof, sunny days and surf. Good friends, good food and J S Bach.

    Story
    ""Ah Love Could thou and I with Fate conspire..""

    These are stories of murder and mystery where Mr Quin inspires an older batchelor of some means to alter a seeming Fate. Again and again. A delightful listen. For me this is a very different Christie. Having written that, there still are, the trip to Egypt, the country homes, weekend guests, young Americans doing Europe, a troupe of robbers, rural hotels, motoring through the countryside, thunderstorms, a Duchess, quiet islands in the sun and Casino. And then some.

    "Good listen"

    I love anything by Agatha Christie and if your a fan you will love it too. I was'nt expecting lots of short stories, I'm not sure if it tells you this in the description, but it is still a great book by the Crime Queen.

    "Short Story Gems"

    Mr. Harley Quin is one of Agatha Christie`s most engaging characters together with Mr.Satterthwaite who appears in each story as the vehicle by which wrongs are righted and justice is done. The stories are intriguing and entertaining. This is Agatha Christie at her short story best and one laments that there are not more of them. Hugh Fraser`s narration is, as always, excellent.

    "Enjoyable but slightly bonkers"

    A good little collection of short stories, apart from the last one that takes the whole premise just that little bit too far for me. Definitely worth a listen though. I rather adore Mr Satterthwaite

    "My favourite Agatha Christie book"

    I am a big fan of Agatha Christie's work and this is my all time favourite. It is quite different from the rest of her books and has a slightly spooky atmosphere. Hugh Fraser (Captain Hastings) does a very good job of narrating all the different characters. A pleasure to listen to!

    "Some things get better with age!"

    I loved this book. hard to believe it was first published in 1930. Yes there are parts of it which are dated and very well to do. However there are parts that are just magical.
    The narration by Hugh Fraser was somehow comforting and apt, a pleasure to listen to.

    "Impressive, Christie with a supernatural touch"

    Excellent, an aspect of Christie's work I was not aware of. Clever stories, and an intriguing character set. As I understand it the stories were written shortly after her "crisis" in 1927, and each story in the set grows darker as the series progresses. I am truly surprised that the mysterious Mr Quin is not more widely known.

    "The amazing Mr Quin!"

    I love this collection of short stories by Agatha Christie, which feature the quiet but observant Mr Satterthwaite and the mysterious Mr Quin. Mysteries to be solved (not always murder) and a sense of the darkly supernatural. I particularly enjoyed 'The Dead Harlequin' story. An overall interesting mix (some better than others) but all enjoyable. Hugh Fraser does an excellent job as always narrating the stories.
