This collection of stories, which includes stories featuring Poirot, Miss Marple, and Mr. Parker Payne, is definitely one Christie's better story collections. The stories feature simpler versions of the intriguing puzzles I love in her novels, and are filled with as much intrigue and mystery as this short form will allow. My Rating: 4 stars.
8/15/16 I am a massive Agatha Christie fan, and her books never cease to wrap me up and envelope me into the story. That being said, this was not a favorite for me. The plot was wonderful, but the wrap up had me a bit disappointed. It felt like she was trying just a bit too hard to make you "expect the unexpected". Fantastic prose, wonderful description and storyline, but a 3/5 for me because I just couldn't love the ending.
