Title: Murder in the Mews
Author: Agatha Christie
Series: Hercule Poirot #16
How did a woman holding a pistol in her right hand shoot herself in the left temple? What was the link between a ghost sighting and the disappearance of top secret military plans? These are just two of the questions Hercule Poirot must answer.
This is a short story collection which sees Hercule Poirot solve four puzzling mysteries from a mysterious death to a dangerous tryst and an impossible theft. The four stories are:
Murder in the Mews, Triangle at Rhodes, The Incredible Theft, Dead Man’s Mirror.
I enjoyed this collection, there was some really great little mysteries in here. I particularly liked the resolution of both Murder in the Mews, which guest starred Inspector Japp and The Incredible Theft, that stepped away from murder and had Poirot investigating a theft of vital plans. I felt Triangle at Rhodes was the weakest of the group which had a nice twist but otherwise not much happened. Dead Man’s Mirror was fun but I felt was a little under developed, it felt like there was a lot of loose ends, but it did have a cameo from Mr. Satterthwaite who is an incredibly fun character.
Overall, this is a good mix in a short story collection.
