It is time for another Agatha Christie book review. Murder in the Mews is a collection of four short stories, all featuring my most favorite detective Hercule Poirot. So without further ado, let's get down to business.

Murder in The Mews is the name of the first story. Poirot is faced with a murder which appears as a suicide but, is it really? A woman is found dead inside her room, of which the door and window are locked from the inside. But Poirot is sure it isn't what it looks like. The second story is called The Incredible Theft where Poirot is summoned to investigate a matter of stolen military documents linked to a possible ghost sighting. Not believing the ghost part one bit, he gets down to what he does best. Dead Man's Mirror is a tale where a murder takes place the moment Poirot arrives on scene. But among all the clues, Poirot is fascinated by the shattered mirror in the dead man's room. What could it possibly mean? In Triangle At Rhodes, Poirot cannot seem to escape murders even when on a holiday and ends up solving one amidst a love triangle.

What can I say that hasn't already been said about Agatha Christie's style of writing? Most satisfying to the curious mind with Poirot being the icing on the cake! The background of each of the stories is different, allowing a fresh point of view to the readers as they advance from one story to the other. Thankfully, the methods of Hercule Poirot remain the same and continue to captivate our minds. And as a result of pursuing a Poirot book, my grey cells are now super charged!

I am a self confessed fan of Agatha Christie and I cannot get enough of her books. I collect them and read them over and over again, without getting bored. And that is what makes her stories incredible! If you love mystery, crime solving and mind boggling plots, then go ahead and grab one of her books. You won't be disappointed.

Needless to say, highly recommended!
