Cards on the Table (Paperback)
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....
