This review is from: Poirot and the Regatta Mystery: A Hercule Poirot Short Story (Kindle Edition)
As the author of 1920s Detective stories Trouble Brewing (Jack Haldean Murder Mysteries) I'm always happy to acknowledge Agatha Christe as the absolute Queen of Crime. The Regatta Mystery is a short story (hence the price) and a wonderful introduction to one of the cleverest mystery writers who ever lived. It stars Parker Pyne, one of Agatha Christies continuing character. Not so well know as Miss Marple or Poriot but jiust as much fun. The Dartmouth background ideftly evoked - its a place she knew vey well - and it all adds up to an excellent story. Read, savour, enjoy!
