Great Poirot stories, several different stories in one book all spanning different years of Chrisite's writing. A wonderful find for Poirot fans.

Three novellas and a short story featuring Hercule Poirot. The first and longest, "Dead Man's Mirror," is tricky if the reader looks for motive first, but perfectly fair if the reader looks primarily at means and opportunity. The second, "The Incredible Theft," is fairly simple, but does let us meet the redoubtable Mrs. Macatta that has been mentioned in several other novels. The third, the titular "Murder in the Mews," is my favorite of the lot, beautifully channeling "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime." The last, the short story "Triangle at Rhodes," seemed too abrupt when matched against the three novellas -- there were too few clues for me to have a chance to untangle it before it was over. All in all, this collection is nice, but not terribly memorable.

Four short stories which show why Dame Agatha was the best.
