This is a mixed collection of short stories: 2 featuring Parker Pyne, 5 featuring Hercule Poirot, 1 featuring Miss Marple, and one narrated by an unnamed character not found in any other story or novel. Unfortunately, as a result it had the feel of a remainders sale -- the stories were linked by no theme and no characters; I doubt they were even written in close proximity to each other. None of them was really a stand-out either; the only one that I will remember at all was the one narrated by the unnamed man, which was more horror story than mystery. Still, a completist should have this in his/her collection, and none of the stories was bad, so 2 1/2 stars.

A diamond worth several fortunes is stolen as a dinner party trick, and then stolen from the thief...how lucky that Mr. Parker Pyne is also a guest at the party. The incomparable Hercule Poirot proves that a crowd is the best place for a murder. And Miss Marple solves a crime that stumped the police without ever leaving her fireside. (back cover)

Nine very short stories in the vein of a locked room mystery, featuring super sleuths Mr. Parker Pyne, Hercule Poirot, and Miss Marple. Easy reading for a lazy day (or evening). Simple plots that you will probably figure out at once. Stories include: The Regatta Mystery, The Mystery of the Bagdad Chest, How Does Your Garden Grow?, Problem at Pollensa Bay, Yellow Iris, Miss Marple Tells a Story, The Dream, In a Glass Darkly, and Problem at Sea.

An Agatha Christie 'sampler'. Short mysteries 'starring' Miss Marple, Hercule Poirot and Parker Pyne in turn.

You have to like short stories, and you have to like Mrs. Christie's short stories, in particular. I got this because of "Trouble at Sea," which I had just watched as a television production. At best, I can say, the quality is uneven - some are slight, in more than one sense, some are quite engrossing.

This collection of short stories, in my opinion, is not up to Ms. Christie's usual standard of writing. Someone else may enjoy them immensely, but they weren't what I was looking for.
