Who is Harley Quin, that is the question. He is the most mysterious character Christie ever created. He is not a detective by any sense. He is more of a guide who gives people hints and clues for them to reach conclusions they never thought of before. He suddenly appears when people need him the most and disappears when he is done. The only character to appear in all Quin's stories is Mr Satterthwaite, the narrator. A old gentleman who likes watching the drama that is life. Many people have their theories of what or who Harley Quin is. I have my own theory, but i will keep that to myself. What's your theory?
I loved Mr. Quin I look to see if there are any more not as test. I loved all the personalities that Mrs.Christie gave us. When I find a author I like I tend to read everything that they wrote. Mr. Quin might be able to match with wit with our funny little Belgium detective just don't call him a Frenchman.😊
This is one of those stories that is not only funny in a way but kind of sad too. Harley Quinn is an interesting character. You never know when he will show up. It makes for a good story when he starts to get you thinking about how it all happened. Great reading.
I always have liked all of Agatha Christie's heroes. Mr. Satterwaite and Harley Quin are no exception. The short stories are unique and the intervention of Mr. Satterwaite on behalf of a person who has passed on is an interesting concept.

This is a interesting little story about a murder a suicide that happened sometime ago and Mr Quin flies in one night to solve the mystery. I haven't read many stories featuring Mr Quin and I quite enjoyed watching him untangle this one. I liked the story and also the narration. This was a good one to get me back into the groove of listening to Agatha Christie mysteries on audio.
"And suddenly all the events of the night seemed to fall into pattern - Mr. Quin's arrival, no fortuitous chance, but the appearance of an actor when his cue was given."
This first Mr. Quin short story introduces a fascinating character, who I've heard was a favorite of Agatha Christie. I've read several of these stories and enjoy him more and more. He knows all, but uses his knowledge to encourage others to look deeper.
This story takes place one evening at a manor house and delves into a 10-year-old suicide. The characters are easy to follow, the surprising twist unexpected. Mr. Quin knocks at the door, apparently experiencing car trouble, and we quickly see his manipulative skills... "It was he who was staging the play - was giving the actors their cues."
The Coming of Mr. Quin is among my favorites in this collection.
