July 14 2003 Mystery Masters
Two things bind this sampler of thrillers: the diminutive Poirot's deductive brilliance and his partner Hastings's obtuseness. The eleven cases here involve film stars, valuable jewels, and abductions as Poirot stylishly uncovers the truth. This is a thrilling short story collection by the master of mystery and the most popular author of all time.

“Hercule Poirot taught me that ‘all that matters is the little grey cells within. Secretly and silently they do their part.’ No action sequence rivals Poirot using his intelligence and logic to solve a crime.” (M. J. Rose, international bestselling author) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some more of her good stories to read July 20 2013
By Duchess TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
These are good short stories of hers that are going to be nice for me to take when I want something fun to do while waiting for the flights and other things I have to do on my way to Europe. I know these stories are also in DVD and have always enjoyed watching them, so I know already that they are good stories to read as well as watch on DVD. I have no regrets in buying these AND the other short story collections that she has made.

I thought this audio book was great! Having David Suchet himself performing the voices...it just makes it classic.
I couldn't stop listening!

4.0 out of 5 stars Delightful April 10 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"Poirot Investigates" is a collection of short stories featuring the Belgian detective. His friend Captain Hastings relays the varied tales, ranging from crimes of robbery to kidnapping to murder. It even includes one of Poirot's failures, where he didn't solve the crime correctly ("The Chocolate Box"). Thoroughly enjoyable for all of Dame Agatha Christie's fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars 14 of Poirot's early cases March 16 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
All of these stories (narrated by Hastings) first appeared in _The Sketch_ (a magazine) throughout 1923; all have been adapted by A&E. I've sorted them by original publication date.
"The Jewel Robbery at the Grand Metropolitan" - (14 March, 1923) Locked-room theft. Hastings, having had a windfall, persuades Poirot to join him on holiday at the Grand Metropolitan in Brighton. When a fellow guest's pearls are stolen, nobody seems to have had opportunity both to steal and conceal them.
"The Disappearance of Mr. Davenheim" - (28 March, 1923) Locked-room disappearance: the senior partner of a financial firm went for a walk, just before meeting a competitor in his own home - but Davenheim was never seen again. Japp bets Poirot a fiver that he can't solve it without leaving his flat, even if he gets all the information Japp does.
"The Adventure of 'The Western Star'" - (11 April, 1923) Movie star Mary Marvell has been receiving mysterious letters, saying that her husband's wedding gift to her - a fabulous diamond - is actually one of a pair, the stolen eyes of an idol. And now she and her husband, Gregory Rolf, are negotiating a deal to film at Yardly Chase - where the Star of the East is the most famous gem of Lord Yardly's collection. (Incidentally, the Valerie Saintclair and Lord Cronshaw cases mentioned in passing can be found in _The Under Dog_).
"The Tragedy at Marsdon Manor" - (18 April, 1923) An insurance company hires Poirot to check on the death of a man who, on the verge of bankruptcy, had taken out a lot of life insurance just before his death. (Poirot, with his love of psychology, actually stoops so low as to test suspects with word-association games here.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff to forget about the world Nov. 6 2001
By JR
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Fine collection of stories with Hastings narrating all of them. Humorous and far fetched and still diverting enough to finish. A nice way to see Poirot's earlier cases plus one he even failed -(the best story of the bunch.) Compared to her other story collections, this one isn't great, but it's still highly readable. Try her Witness for the Prosecution collection, too and the shorter Jane Marple pieces. They make a well rounded whole. Christie was skilled in many forms of writing (novels, plays, etc, even romance, under another name)
