Bespreking

A great collection

In The Veiled Lady Poirot is a bit bored with the lack of interesting cases that comes his way when a mysterious lady rings his doorbell. This adventure transforms our hero into a burglar and delivers a reasonable, although a bit farfetched conclusion to an amusing mystery.

Nothing is what it seems in The Lost Mine, where Poirot gets involved in solving the mysterious dissapearance of the Chinese businessman Wu Ling. It�s quite amusing when Poirot visits the opium den, but I never got the clue as to why that would lead to the solution to the mystery.

The Chocolate Box is a nice little example of a fair detective story. It gives the reader enough clues as to the nature of the crime, so when the denouement follows it should be no surprise to the avid detective fan. Simple but effective.
