This complete collection of over 50 Hercule Poirot short stories in a single volume carries little masterpieces of detection. There is a spectacular diversity in the plots and themes of these cases, ranging from very brief tales to full-length novellas.
Hercule Poirot had a passion for order, for rational thought, and had a justified confidence in his deductive genius. No matter what the provocation, he always remained calm.
The shrewd little detective with the egg-shaped head and the enormous black moustache was created by one of the world’s greatest storytellers, Agatha Christie, who excelled at the art of short story writing. Only she could have devised the cases worthy of Poirot’s skill, the ingenious mysteries that challenge the reader as well as the detective.
There is a spectacular diversity in the plots and themes of these cases, ranging from very brief tales to full-length novellas. Violent murders, poisonings, kidnappings and thefts, all are solved or thwarted with Poirot’s usual panache – and the characteristic application of his ‘little gray cells’
