review 1: Billed as a short story, this is quite long for a typical short story but I picked it up on Kindle. My version contained only the one story: Dead Man's Mirror. After reading "The Christie Curse" I felt the need to delve into the true Christie oeuvre and greatly enjoyed this one. I don't think I've read this one but I do remember it being dramatized with David Suchet as Poirot. An egotistical aristocrat surprisingly commits suicide and, in shooting himself shatters a mirror on the wall. Did the shot actually hit the mirror or was it a set up for murder? And did the dead man kill himself because he had found out about some long-ago family scandal and, writing the word "Sorry" on paper, do away with himself as the noble thing to do ending his line forever? Only Poirot k... morenows!
review 2: A collection of four short stories featuring Poirot. The title story concerns an arrogant Lord who summons Poirot to his manor to discuss fraud, but the detective finds himself investigating a locked room murder instead. This is the only Christie I've read so far where the answers seemed so glaringly obvious.This book also goes by the title of Murder in the Mews, which is the best story in the collection. A young woman with a good life commits suicide, or maybe someone has made it look like suicide. Poirot is assisted by Inspector Japp and the woman's roommate. less
