My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Blurb:
Bagaimana mungkin seorang wanita dengan pistol di tangan kanan bisa menembak pelipis kirinya sendiri? 

Adakah kaitan antara hantu dan hilangnya sebuah dokumen penting berisi rencana rahasia pemerintah? 

Bagaimana sebutir peluru yang menewaskan seorang lelaki bisa memecahkan cermin di bagian lain ruangan? 

Dan siapakah yang membuyarkan cinta segi tiga yang melibatkan seorang wanita cantik yang dikenal suka kawin cerai? 

Hercule Poirot dihadapkan pada empat kasus pelik yang membingungkan, dan masing-masing kasus dipecahkan secara tak terduga dan memuaskan.

Review:
I've read this book long time ago. I remembered that it is a collection of stories. There are 4 stories inside. The first story is Murder in the Mews. I'm not surprised with the outcome, though I don't remember the story. It was a long time ago.

The second story is similar with one of the stories in Poirot's Early Cases. The difference is just the object. In this book, its plane design, but in the other book, its submarine design. I forgot the title in the other book, but I think you will know when you read this clue. In this book, this story is longer, because there are only 4 stories. In the other book, there are 15 stories, so each story are relatively shorter than in this book.

The third story, titled Dead Man's Mirror also similar with the story in Problem at Pollensa Bay, titled Second Gong (Gong Kedua). Only, the story in this book is longer.

The fourth story, Triangle in Rhodes, is kind of a surprise, even though I distinctively remembered the ending.

Still, a good read.

About the Author:
Agatha Christie

Agatha Mary Clarissa Miller was born in Torquay, Devon, England, U.K., as the youngest of three. The Millers had two other children: Margaret Frary Miller (1879–1950), called Madge, who was eleven years Agatha's senior, and Louis Montant Miller (1880–1929), called Monty, ten years older than Agatha.

Agatha Christie also wrote romance novels under the pseudonym Mary Westmacott, and was occasionally published under the name Agatha Christie Mallowan.

To honour her many literary works, she was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire in the 1956 New Year Honours. The next year, she became the President of the Detection Club. In the 1971 New Year Honours she was promoted Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire, three years after her husband had been knighted for his archaeological work in 1968.
