The novel is notable for being the first novel in the Poirot series set at least partly in the courtroom, with lawyers and witnesses exposing the facts underlying Poirot's solution to the crimes. The title is drawn from a song in Shakespeare's play  Twelfth Night . The novel was well received, even by her usual critic, who said "Elegiac, more emotionally involving than is usual in Christie, but the ingenuity and superb clueing put it among the very best of the classic titles."...

This was the last novel of an especially prolific phase of Christie's work on Poirot. She published thirteen Poirot novels between 1935 and 1942 out of a total of eighteen novels in that period.

Poirot sets himself a challenge before he retires - to solve 12 cases which correspond with the labours of his classical Greek namesake! 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 in the...

Eddie Chapman was a charming criminal, a con man, and a philanderer. He was also one of the most remarkable double agents Britain has ever produced. Inside the traitor was a man of loyalty; inside the villain was a hero. The problem for Chapman, his spymasters, and his lovers was to know where one persona ended and the other began. Based on recently declassified files,  Agent Zigzag  tells Chapman’s full story for the first time. It’s a gripping tale of loyalty, love, treachery,...

Anton Chekhov (1860-1904) shares insightful moments in the everyday lives of 19th Century Russians. With great economy, Chekhov's short stories reveal the depths of human joy, confusion, dissatisfaction, and sorrow. His tales elicit a deep sympathy for all people, wherever they may be, in Russia more than a hundred years ago or anywhere in the world today. These translations, by Constance Garnett, Marian Fell, and others, are offered here as public domain recordings created both for...

Anton Chekhov's Swan Song [1887] was one of his early plays. In it are but two characters: Vasili Svietlovidoff, a 68 year old comic actor and Nikita Ivanich, who is an even older man, the theater's prompter. Following a benefit evening in his honor, unbeknownst to everyone, the comic actor Svetlovidov falls asleep in a drunken blur. When he awakens, the theater is dark and empty. He falls quickly into saddened monologue... The play opens with Chekhov's stage directions: The scene is laid on...

Anton Chekhov wrote three interconnected short stories, sometimes referred to as "The Little Trilogy." The three are: "The Man in a Case," "Gooseberries," and "About Love." These individual tales are well loved in their own right, but read/listened to together, they reveal interrelated, reoccurring characters and themes. The three stories read here in public performance, are now available as a single iPod or MP3 audiobook. Please select the version...
