Disappointed

Most of these stories are also on "Poirot Investigates", so if you have that, don't waste your money on this one. Or vice versa.
David Suchet's narration is, funnily enough, not as good as some of the others.

Great story telling & performance. Ideal AC.

Grown up loving Agatha Christie in all forms but find this to be the best medium ever. David Suchet delivers an endearing Poirot as well as a wonderful performance as Hastings and the wide myriad of characters. Great listening

Excellent reading but ...

... I already had most of these cases in another collection. But David Suchet is my favorite Poirot and an excellent narrator.

Murder in paradise...

Thirteen short stories from the master. David Suchet is a brilliant narrator, creating various characters and voices, that bring the stories to life.
