About the Book

In appearance Hercule Poirot hardly resembled an ancient Greek hero. Yet—reasoned the detective—like Hercules he had been responsible for ridding society of some of its most unpleasant monsters.

So, in the period leading up to his retirement, Poirot made up his mind to accept just twelve more cases: his self-imposed 'Labours'. Each would go down n the annals of crime as a heroic feat of deduction.

Critical Praise

“Hercule Poirot was and is the gold standard among brilliant and quirky detectives, and the Christie touch with plot and puzzle has never been equaled, much less exceeded.” — John Lescroart, New York Times bestselling author

“A finely shaped book, richly devious and quite brilliant—by far the best volume of Poirot shorts.” — San Francisco Chronicle

“Twelve little masterpieces of detection. Poirot and Agatha Christie at their inimitable best.” — Sunday Express (London)
