    One thought on “The Jewel Robbery at the Grand Metropolitan and Other Stories”

    1. This is a too short collection of Christie s short stories, about 2 hours in length audio , read by David Suchet, who s known for his portrayal of Christie s detective Hercule Poirot on Masterpiece Mystery What that doesn t prepare you for is his amazingly wide range of voices and acting that he applies to the reading of these stories I think I like his Hastings even than his Poirot You d swear you re listening to a whole talented cast instead of one man The stories themselves are from Poirot s [...]
