Cards on the Table (Paperback)
In Agatha Christie's classic mystery, Cards on the Table, the wily Hercule Poirot is on the case when a bridge night turns deadly
Mr. Shaitana is famous as a flamboyant party host. Nevertheless, he is a man of whom everybody is a little afraid. So when he boasts to Hercule Poirot that he considers murder an art form, the detective has some reservations about accepting a party invitation to view Shaitana's "private collection."
Indeed, what begins as an absorbing evening of bridge is to turn into a more dangerous game altogether....
“When you think it’s Colonel Mustard in the basement with the crescent wrench, you owe the fun to Dame Christie.”
-William Dietrich, New York Times bestselling author of the Ethan Gage Adventures
“The finest murder story of her career….Mrs. Christie has never been more ingenious.”
-Daily Mail (London)
