    Ok this book comprises four novellas so its probably fair that I mark them as I readMurder in the Mews 45 ⭐️A great short story that commences on Guy Fawkes night amidst the fireworks exploding so ideal for murder And who did it and why ? Poirot and Japp go metaphorically hand in hand to solve this complex killingThe Incredible Theft 35⭐️Who was the person seen skulking around the terrace ? How did they know to steal the plans in that short space of time ? Poirot interviews all the people at the dinner that night to ascertain who could possibly have stolen the plans and why was the femme fatale Mrs Vanderlyn really invited for the weekend by Lord Mayfield ?Dead Man's Mirror 4⭐️Amazingly I read this short story last year and yet I still couldn't remember who the murderer was Now does that mean I am loosing my memory or hopefully that I've read so many books since that this story has been pushed from my mindAnyway its an enjoyable story with Poirot at his most enigmatic best as he investigates the suicide or was it murder of the slightly batty Sir Gervase Chevenix Gore Writing a book about his ancestors and surrounded by his meagre family and staff Sir Gervase is found dead in his locked study when he doesn't turn up in time for dinner Poirot invited down that day arrives amongst the confusionTriangle at Rhodes 4⭐️So this was to uote a friend a Grand story Poirot holidaying on a Greek Island lucky devil is drawn into an incident involving 2 married couples He is concerned that something untoward is going to happen and warns one of the wives that she should leave the island Needless to say she ignores his advice and her husband is then accused of murdering the other wife Poirot seems to have pre empted the murder and makes himself available to the Greek police Truth will come outSo overall this has to be a 4 ⭐️ star read 4 great short stories that really demonstrate Poirot's intelligence and versatility

    The anthology consists of 4 novellasMurder in the Mews Remember remember The fifth of November The Gunpowder treason and plot; I know of no reason Why the Gunpowder treason Should ever be forgotWho could have thought that hipster Agatha Christie would use these lines before Alan Moore made them cool in V for Vendetta? I certainly was not expecting this In any way during the celebration of Guy Fawkes night a suicide of a young woman occurred Only there were too many suspicious circumstances for Inspector Japp to start murder investigation Luckily his friend Hercule Poirot was involved in the investigation So murder or suicide? It is up to Poirot to decideThe Incredible TheftA strategic plans for a super duper plane was stolen from the home of its inventor At this time Europe was ready to start a war so everybody and their brother would have loved to build such a plane The theft was committed in such a way that is was physically impossible to do thus the title One of the guests convinced the host to invite Poirot to investigate Poirot did so Is it just me or the ending is uite unsatisfactory? Dead Man's MirrorA famous eccentric millionaire made an offer to Poirot he could not refuse He came following the invitation just in time to find a dead body of that guy Everybody was convinced it was suicide Everybody but Poirot that is The longest and the most convoluted story of the book The mirror in the murder room was the key to the mystery I still have no clue why Triangle at RhodesPoirot was taking a vacation on a Greek island thinking there would be no murders around him To nobody's surprise he ended up right in the middle of a love triangle with all its drama jealousy heartbreaking and murder Yes a person whose fate was obvious from the first page of the story was poisoned This is the shortest story with setup being done during all but the last couple of pages where Poirot explained what really had happened The story length is its biggest strengthWhat can I say? It is a Poirot book not titled The Big Four which means the minimal rating is 4 stars It has great characters Poirot himself being first and foremost and complicated mysteries but it is not outstanding so 4 stars it is

    A collection that shows its age culturally speaking Dead Man's Mirror3 starsThe flat was a modern one The furnishings of the room were modern too The armchairs were suarely built the upright chairs were angular A modern writing table was set suarely in front of the window and at it sat a small elderly man His head was practically the only thing in the room that was not suare It was egg shapedClearly written in the days when entrance and exit wounds were not a known Thing by all readersviewers Nonetheless I liked the characterizations The classic locked room mystery that seems to be a suicide The Incredible Theft 25 starsAs the butler handed round the souffle Lord Mayfield leaned confidentially towards his neighbor on the right Lady Julia Carrington Known as a perfect host Lord Mayfield took trouble to live up to his reputation Although unmarried he was always charming to womenI never really grooved much on Christie's attempts at spy stories It's a strange bygone age where people apparently take home Top Secret Plans and have Top Secret Meetings at their country estates Still Poirot and it is intriguing as a period piece Murder in the Mews 3 stars'Penny for the guy sir?' A small boy with a grimy face grinned ingratiatingly 'Certainly not' said Chief Inspector Japp 'And look here my lad ' A short homily followed The dismayed urchin beat a precipitate retreat remarking briefly and succinctly to his youthful friends 'Blimy if it ain't a cop all togged up'Christie does a nice twist Inspector Japp and Poirot investigate an apparent suicide discovered by the woman's roommate More dialogue with feel of polish Triangle at Rhodes2 stars Don't read this if you are going to read Evil Under the Sun Hercule Poirot sat on the white sand and looked out across the sparkling blue water He was carefully dressed in a dandified fashion in white flannels and a large panama hat protected his head He belonged to the old fashioned generation which believed in covering itself carefully from the sun Miss Pamela Lyall who sat beside him and talked ceaselessly represented the modern school of thought in that she was wearing the barest minimum of clothing on her sun browned personChristie must have been working out her plot for one of her better known full length mysteries This is uite truncated at a mere 25 pages and loses much of the atmosphere that makes the book so powerfulTwo and a half stars rounding up because Christie If I rate them lower it's probably because I'm comparing them to my memories of her at her bestEdition note this is the right ISBN number wrong cover It's a 1984 reprint by Berkeley Books and features a sihlouette of Poirot on the front

    Who am I kidding in writing this review? None or one? of my Goodreads friends is going to read this book 440000 reviewed And Then There Were None More than 100K people or have reviewed Christie’s each most popular Poirot works such as The Murder of Roger Ackroyd Murder on the Orient Express or Death on the Nile Murder on the Mews is one of the Little Engines that Could of Christie lore reviewed by as few as 8000 It features four stories three that might ualify as novellas published in 1937 maybe perfect length for tv serialization but nothing much to write home about my having been there One thing to observe about Christie generally is that she makes scant reference to a real world outside of her fictions In general she occasionally admits that The Great Depression may have affected her characters In “Murder in the Mews” we open on Guy Fawkes Day with some kids begging “Penny for the Guy sir?” but Chief Inspector Japp brushes him off and there are maybe only a couple other references thereafter about the fact that the need for money might be a motive for the crime Poirot himself is a little egg headed dandy; he loves pretty girls and royals He’s generally respectful to all classes in his investigations but he and his author don’t much apologize for being pretty escapist even elitist In “The Incredible Theft”—which is not all that incredible Agatha come on—we have our first mention that England may have to face the challenge of involvement in WW II“Murder in the Mews” The best and most developed story is the title story Is it a murder disguised as a suicide or a suicide disguised as a murder? That’s the uniue angle here and I htink it is very good 4 stars“The Incredible Theft” See above but it’s about a theft ? and no one even dies? What’s the good of reading about that Agatha? At least kill somebody Though the theft involves plans for a bomber—a war reference—and a pretty American former ? spy no one would care much about this theft Not enough development 2 stars“Dead Man’s Mirror” Features rich and somewhat eccentric Lord Chevenix Gore who for some reason seems to have committed suicide in spite of his massive ego Who would even buy this premise and yet most characters seem to accept it for most of the story So yeah he was murdered and as Gore gets gored okay by a bullet sorry couldn't help myself the mirror in an adjoining room gets shattered How can this even happen? But why should we even care? This one is a little notable because it rehearses an idea for getting away with murder that appears in a later book The Mirror Crack'd It's a solid story 3 stars“The Triangle at Rhodes” is mercifully short the weakest of the four not included in some editions involving a love triangle though you think it is about one set of characters and that’s the interest in this one that the triangle you thought was key is not as important as another Beach scenes 2 stars but the summer scene at Rhodes could have been developed These are pretty early and weaker stories from Christie and yet they are still readable I kept reading they are pretty well constructed I read them fast and yet they are good to see her working out some different ideas If you want to read Christie though this would not even be close to the one I would recommend

    That odd little foreigner with the strange mustache Hercule Poirot is at it againIn Murder in the Mews a collection of shorts Poirot's razor sharp mind is pitted against such stumpers as a suicidemurder conundrum a deadly love triangle and a case of important papers gone missing Originally four short stories were published under this title which was called Dead Man's Mirror here in the States My version only included three stories Murder in the Mews Triangle at Rhodes and The Incredible Theft The title story is the most intriguing and most well developed The remaining two were uite enjoyable if a bit uick and just a tad perfunctoryjust a tad mind you Poirot that charming if arrogant sleuth is clever as ever in unearthing the truth an absolute pleasure to observe in action Christie's plotting was relatively tight with an occasionally smart twist or two Her characters are serviceable as always though few really stood out as some have in her other stories All in all if you're already an Agatha Christie fan you won't go wrong with Murder in the Mews


  7. Vikas Singh Vikas Singh says:

    What makes this collection a good read are the two stories The first Incredible theft is expanded version of Christie's original story The Submarine plans The second story Dead Man's mirror is expanded version of her earlier story The second Gong The other two stories in the collection include Murder in the Mews and Triangle at Rhodes We also get to know that Poirot loves his Sirop de cassis

  9. Janete Janete says:

    This was the first Agatha Christie's short histories book I've read and I did not like it very much It's interesting for passing the time but I prefer the novels with Hercule Poirot than these short stories I read in my native language and I consider that this book deserves 35 stars


  10. Obsidian Obsidian says:

    I gave this collection of Hercule Poirot stories 5 stars I thought that the stories were interesting although I uibbled about the ending on two of the four stories Murder in the Mews 45 stars Japp asks Poirot to assist when a woman Mrs Barbara Allen is found dead in an apparent suicide After arriving on scene both men are starting to lean towards murder Mrs Allen roommate Miss Plenderleith seems largely unaffected by the scene she sees or so it appears Japp wonders if Miss Plenderleith had something to do with Mrs Allen's death Poirot is intrigued by the scene he has found and realizes that something here is amiss I thought this was a very good showing of Poriot's little grey cells I also liked seeing how well Poirot and Japp worked this one together I do often find the stories that are absent Poirot's side kick Captain Hastings to not be as fulfilling as a reader but thought this one was very well done The solution to this one was interesting especially because I think there's a lot of logical leaps I didn't see straight on The only reason why I didn't give this one 5 stars is that the ending was not 100 percent satisfying I did laugh though since there is some dialogue between Japp and Poirot and murder and I started thinking about Curtain Poirot's Last Case The Incredible Theft 4 stars At a big country house I love stories with big country houses are the setting Lord Mayfield has invited Sir George Carrington his wife Lady Julia and their son Reggie There is also a Mrs Vanderlyn who is a beautiful brunette American woman with a very suspicious pastpresent Mrs Macatta who is a forthright MP Then we also have Mr Carlile Lord Mayfield's assistant and Mrs Vanderlyn's maid Christie sets the stage so to speak when we get to follow around the room and see how some of these characters feel about the other ones Eventually everyone leaves the dining room and Lord Mayfield and Sir George are left alone to discuss the design of the new fighter Later on that evening they are about to put the plans away when they hear a scream and leave the study Coming back they find the plans gone Poirot is called in and honestly you can tell that right away he knows what happened but we go through a whole back and forth with him interviewing people Once again the ending was not that satisfying because we find out who the guilty party is and the reasoning behind things made me roll my eyes Dead Man's Mirror 4 stars Sir Gervase Chevenix Gore writes to Hercule Poirot to come to him at once Poirot of course is not someone who likes to be ordered around However after a conversation with someone he knowstrusts about Sir Gervase he decides to go and visit He arrives and it seems that Sir Gervase has killed himself Poirot of course interviews everyone present and it seems there are a lot of warring interests going on between certain people present Sir Gervase's adopted daughter Ruth was being pressuredbullied by him to marry a distant relation Hugo Trent Due to Ruth not wanting to marry Hugo we find out that he intended to rewrite his will disinheriting her We get led on a merry chase via interviewing suspects but once again Poirot seems to know almost immediately who the guilty party is and why they did what they did I just thought it was a little far fetched in places Triangle at Rhodes5 stars We have Poirot on holiday in Rhodes There's not a lot of people around so he's made friends of sorts with some of the other guests All of them are agog though at the goings on between two married couples the Gold's and the Chantry's The Gold's consists of Douglas and Marjorie The Chantry's consists of Tony and Valentine We find out that Valentine has been married 4 or I think maybe even 5 times before she has wed Tony and that the woman seems to have a habit of having men fall in love with her Tony is possessive of his wife and doesn't like other men coming near her However on a beach day Douglas Chantry lays eyes on Valentine and it appears that is all he cares about during the vacation Soon the whole place is wondering when Douglas and Valentine will run off And we have the dreaded triangle between a married man his wife and mistress When Valentine dies though everyone wonders who did it and whyThis was my favorite story in the collection and I loved how we are given the solution It makes you go back and re read the story you just finished which I always enjoy I read this book for the Amateur Sleuth suare
