Summary

First there was the mystery of the film star and the diamond...then came the "suicide" that was murder...the mystery of the absurdly cheap flat...a suspicious death in a locked gun-room...a million dollar bond robbery...the curse of a pharoah's tomb...a jewel robbery by the sea...the abduction of a prime minister...the disappearance of a banker...a phone call from a dying man...and, finally, the mystery of the missing will.

What links these fascinating cases? Only the brilliant deductive powers of Hercule Poirot!

Classic Christie - and Suchet is perfect as always

I really enjoyed David Suchet in his role as Poirot for television. It makes him a natural choice for narrator of this classic collection of Christie's stories featuring our favourite Belgian detective. Suchet delivers well, and his performance is both dynamic and soothing, so I can either listen and enjoy or have it as background when I want a comforting sleep. I'm so pleased that he recorded these stories and love them every time I listen. Highly recommended.

Good stories

the stories are interesting enough mysteries - most have stood up to being adapted for TV. Suchet, excellent though he is as an actor, is not as good as Hugh Fraser as a narrator, these being two different skills.

Come on Audible

love all there is written by Agatha Christie however its so frustrating that audible has books like these with the chapters just listed as "chapter 1" "chapter 2" etc, when these are individual stories.

Wrong Reader, Good Stories

A good collection of stories, but beware if you're a fan of Hugh Fraser and don't listen to the preview before buying. This collection is actually read by David Suchet (Poirot in the TV series) and NOT Fraser.

The stories themselves are good and varied, ideal to dip in and out of. Much less 'murder mystery' and more towards the Jewel heist type story than Christie's other books, but all are well written with satisfying endings. Recommended then, but again, listen to the preview before buying
