Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "These never-before-collected Christie stories were originally published in magazines of the times, and the majority of them were written before Dame Agatha was at the top of her game. Most of the nine tales (though not the one Poirot) focus on human nature rather than true mystery and bristle with melodrama (one can almost hear organ music crashing in the background). Christie's many fans (two billion copies of her books are in print) may not find these stories to be hearty fare, but as tea cookies, they will satisfy. --Ilene Cooper"
