Cards on the Table:

An unusual dinner party is hosted by Mr Shaitana, as his guests include four detectives: Hercule Poirot, Mrs. Ariadne Oliver,  Colonel Race, Superintendent Battle of Scotland Yard and four people who have gotten away with murder in their past. They decide to play Bridge after dinner, the detectives play in one room and the suspects in another. To Mr. Shaitana this was supposed to be nothing but entertainment, but after the detectives finish their game, they come to the shocking discovery that Mr Shaitana had been murdered. Naturally, the detectives suspect one of the other four guests as his murderer, but each one of them denies the accusation after being interviewed.

Is it really true that one of the other four guests have to be the culprit? Or could one of the detectives have something to do with it?

Over de auteur
Agatha Christie is a british writer. She was born on September 15th, 1890 in Torquay in a wealthy family and the youngest of three children.

Christie had always been a fan of detective novels, so after having enjoyed several of them she decided to write her own. She finished her first novel in 1916, though it got rejected by multiple publishers. After several months of trying one was willing to publish it if she was willing to change the ending. So she did, and it was finally published in 1920.

She eventually grew to become one of the most successful writers of all time.

New York Times: ‘Agatha Christie… what more could a mystery addict require?’

Velocity Magazine: ‘There is always room for more Agatha… these graphic adaptations dish up the most perfect examples of Christie. Observer Agatha is a classic of her genre. These are good stories.’
