Read in November, 2017

2017 reread on audio: Magnificent collection of stories I think I may know by heart. This time the fabulous readings by Christopher Lee, David Suchet, the lispy Joan Hickson, and other fabulous actors were so good I am inclined to re-listen rather than be disappointed by whatever I try next. I've a suspicion that I first read this book more than 30 years ago, and perhaps that's why I could tell you the creepy doll story, Poirot's Christmas adventure with the pudding, and the seemingly idiot girl traveling to sell miniatures, not to mention Bunch intercepting a dying man asking for sanctuary in the church, as though they were my own memories.

2009: Not only mysteries, but gentle horror as well (I guess "creepies" isn't a real reader's advisory term.) Reminiscent of those Hitchcock compilations with a nice balance of Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple, and generic creepies. Quick.
