over the last week i've finished four Agatha Christie audiobooks starring Hercule Poirot.
Death in the Clouds: a French woman is murdered, in front of a dozen witnesses who don't notice a thing, in an airplane as it crosses the Channel to England. Hercule Poirot happens to be on the plane and, as he didn't notice the killing either, launches himself into the investigation. I was pretty proud of myself as i actually figured out the murderer! a 6.
The Mysterious Affair at Styles: I have definitely read this one before, probably a few times. By the time all the major characters were introduced I had remembered who was killed, who the murderer was and the major plot twists. still, it was fun to listen to. 6.
The Big Four: sorta like a James Bond plot. Four criminal masterminds try in various ways to get rid of Poirot so he cannot stop their devious plans. It was the sort of thing i had to keep reminding myself that, at the time it came out, the plot devices probably weren't cliches yet. a 5.
The Labours of Hercules: I liked this one the least. It really was 12 short stories, threaded by the fact that Poirot feels there needs to be a new series of the Labours of Hercules for intelligent, modern people. only a 4 but i must admit that the dog kidnapping scheme is bloody brilliant!
So there it is, 3 for the Vintage Mystery challenge as I am not counting the reread.
