As a whole I'm not a big fan of Agatha's short stories, but there are several I adore:

5. The Mystery of the Blue Jar
4. The Strange Case of Sir Arthur Carmichel
3. Accident
2. Witness for the Prosecution
1. In a Glass Darkly

I always have difficulties when I have to say why I like something. It either fascinates me or not. These stories just strike me with their endings. I was like wooooowwwwwwwwwwwww what the...... .

    For me it has to be The Harlequinn Tea Set, hands down. The visual imagery here mixed with the murder mystery and mr Quinn's magical tone are always delighting.
    Poirot's Third Floor is also near, being funny at the beginning and absolutely dark at the end.
