I was rather surprised, if not disappointed, to learn only after I started reading Murder in the Mews, that this book in the Poirot series in fact consists out of four totally independent stories. Even for Agatha Christie I would say that four mysteries in less than 350 pages is a bit of a stretch.

All four of them were - of course - very nice and again unique examples of Christies' endless wittiness, but I would rather have enjoyed them wrapped in longer stories. ( )

Inspector Japp from Scotland Yard invites Hercule Poirot to a house in Bardsley Garden Mews where, during Guy Fawkes Night the previous evening, a Mrs Barbara Allen apparently shot herself. Her flatmate, Miss Jane Plenderleith, discovered the body. The doctor believes that there is something strange about the death - possibly murder made to look like suicide... a great short story. ( )

A nice collection, and refreshing after the Monogram Murders, an official Poirot pastiche. That was okay-ish, but there's nothing like the real thing! ( )

This is a collection of three Poirot short stories or novellas: "Dead Man's Mirror", "Murder in the Mews", and "Triangle at Rhodes." Of the three, Triangle was my favourite; Mirror went on too long and Mews didn't have Hastings in it, unlike the TV adaptation (which made the TV adaptation much more fun). Still, I'm pretty much always happy to read a Poirot, so it was not the worst way to spend my reading time. ( )
