Christie first introduced her dapper Belgian detective Hercule Poirot in , with her own debut novel The Mysterious Affair at Styles. She bade him farewell with Curtain , her penultimate novel. But though published in , this was written in the s, and most of the later collections of Poirot stories drew from earlier material.

So the seventeen-year span in this book essentially covers the working life of the former Belgian policeman from his retirement to England to the time of his final case. Almost all of them have been dramatized in the BBC series Agatha Christie's Poirot, together with several of the full-length novels, starring the incomparable David Suchet.

Christie's ingenuity is unmatched, not only in devising original twists but also in developing variations on a theme as she did in her collection The Labours of Hercules , all of which are reprinted here. Coming back to them again after the BBC versions, though, I find myself enjoying them much less.

It is not that I recall the solutions; none of the stories have stuck in the memory like the best of the novels. It is more a matter of pacing.

They contain enough to intrigue, albeit briefly, but not enough to satisfy. And he got it from old Badger Cotterill who's got it from Snooks Parker.

This tiny scrap of dialogue, from "Problem at Sea," says a lot about Christie's world, and also her understated sense of humor. For Hercule Poirot is a society detective, and almost all his cases involve members of the upper crust, bound by wealth and birth, schools, regiments, or clubs, attending the same house parties and social events, and with a fair sprinkling of vapid young things with nothing to do except play tennis and flirt.

Even when Poirot's clients come from outside this circle, they are always at the top of their game: a middle-European prince, the ballet dancer who has taken London by storm, an American billionaire, a star of the silver screen.

The brilliance of the BBC producers was to realize what scope this gives for production design, shot after shot of Art Deco style and interwar luxury, filled out with those British character actors who can make so much of tiny roles.

But on the page, the supporting roles remain tiny, and the color and luxury is left to the imagination. This is not the case with a full-length novel, where even a minor character can be given depth, and we can immerse ourselves in an environment rather than dipping into it and moving on.F] The Inner Life of Animals: F] Psychology of Gender: Shealy [P.
