Absolutely brilliant collection of short crime fiction. It's a little bulky to manage but for a traveller on the move (or at home on a story a night) it's about as much fun as you can have with your pijamas on!! I had pre-judged Poirot on some pretty poor-rate Hollywood movies and (in my opinion) an over-styled Granada TV series. The novels are well worth this exploratory read and at the cover price you'd be hard pushed to find better value for money. A perfect companion to a long flight or a busy schedule.
