This collection was fun, but at the same time it was confusing because I’d already read at least two of the stories, and possibly more like five or six of them. That’s a problem when there’s only eight stories inside there, but at least they’re good stories, which is why I remembered them in the first place.

It’s because I’ve been collecting every Agatha Christie book that was ever published, and there’s some crossover between books that were published in the UK and in the USA. It confused me, though, because some of the stories also had different names, but then I checked this book against a few others that I own and I saw that even though the names were different, the opening paragraphs were the same.

I still enjoyed reading it though, and I would recommend this to other Agatha Christie fans. It’s also cool because it includes stories about both Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple, which gives you a nice healthy little dose of both of them. All in all then, there’s a lot to like here and not much to dislike. Read it.
