Overview

At last, a single volume that gathers together all of the short stories featuring Agatha Christie's most famous creation: Hercule Poirot. The dapper, mustache-twirling little Belgian with the egg-shaped head and curious mannerisms has solved some of the most puzzling crimes of the century—and, in his own humble opinion, is "probably the greatest detective in the world."

In this complete collection of stories, ranging from short tales to novellas, Poirot faces violent murders, poisonings, kidnappings, and thefts—all solved with his characteristic panache. Only Agatha Christie could have devised cases worthy of Hercule Poirot's skill and "little gray cells."

Every Hercule Poirot short story in one great volume. Written in the typical Agatha Christie way. Don't miss out on this one. Over 800 pages. Well edited.

50 Poirot mysteries, all the short stories in one volume. Lots of fun! Anyone who loves Agatha Christie will like the convenience of all these stories in one volume. I like being able to read one quick one when I have a few minutes.

Agatha Christie is in top form with Hercules Poirot.  Each of his mysteries are wonderfully written and very enjoyable.  She'll leave you guessing.

If you enjoy Agatha Christie and Poirot in particular, here is all his short stories in one volume. For a paperback, it is heavy and thick, but the [print is clear and the stories are vintage Christie. Of course, this does not include her Poirot novels, although, I believe many of those may have been adapted from these short stories.

The Mistress of Mystery presents all her Poirot short stories. Hours of bite sized fun!

Beware -- The last short story is out of order chronically . It should have been placed before all the Labors of Hercules. I don't care when it was published! Otherwise, a great collection. In Number 24 (The Theft of the Royal Ruby), it is not at all clear why Poirot was sent to Kings Lacey - until later in the story. BTW, the Masterpiece Mystery version tells you right up front.
