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."

    All Poirot, at your fingertips

    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.
