This is a story that has been shown on television, and has been included in printed versions under various names. I enjoyed reading this book very much as it tells not only a story but reveals a bit of Poirot's personality and thinking process. As in many of Agatha Christie's novels, you keep thinking that you know 'who did it', but find out you are not correct. Read this book without outside distractions. It's a keeper!

Gold as Heart
As usual very high standard of short stories, though not the best in my view (I would rank labour or Hercules as better). The most memorable of these stories is the one about the pudding, which is very fun, though with an overconvoluted plot which would not really occur in real life (.. but again this is fiction right, and the character of Poirot is hardly realistic, which is also what makes him likeable). Note that the last story isn't with Poirot but with Ms Marple: to be honest not my cup of tea, as I much prefer Poirot, but in comparison with almost any crime writers out there, still head and shoulders above today's standards.

Agatha never disappoints. This is a fun read that keeps you guessing to the end. Arrived in as advertised condition and on time.

Didn't know it was a series of short stories.

As a long term fan of Agatha Christie I was pleased to find a novel I didn't remember reading. My "little grey cells" remembered parts of the story when I read further chapters. I love the gentle dialogue and language of Agatha Christie's style. It evokes a different mood to modern novels even though they have similar macarbe subjects. I found the story, like other Christie tales, difficult to put down. It was very enjoyable and worthy of a second and third visit to Póirot's world.
