Great Short Stories,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding (Poirot) (Kindle Edition)
I'm not usually a fan of short stories and tend to avoid them. Having said that, when I read the blurb on the back the first short story The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding it caught my eye and when I started to read the book they held my attention throughout as they had quite a bit of depth to them.
There is quite a cross section in these stories which are all Poirot's except one which is a Miss Marple, so you are in for a treat if you like both. The stories range from finding a ruby embedded in a Christmas pudding, a man's body found in a Spanish chest, a man unjustly accused of murdering his difficult boss, a man having a dream where he wants to kill himself to a man who is a creature of habit suddenly changes his eating habits and routine when eating out at a restaurant. All in a days work for Poirot.
A nice dose of murder to curl up in front of the fire and read on a cold afternoon with a cuppa. Would recommend.
