Editorial Reviews

John Lescroart
“Hercule Poirot was and is the gold standard among brilliant and quirky detectives, and the Christie touch with plot and puzzle has never been equaled, much less exceeded.”
Sunday Express (London)
“Twelve little masterpieces of detection. Poirot and Agatha Christie at their inimitable best.”
San Francisco Chronicle
“A finely shaped book, richly devious and quite brilliant—by far the best volume of Poirot shorts.”
