He was a man of whom nearly everybody was a little afraid. Why this was so can hardly be stated in definite words. There was a feeling, perhaps, that he knew a little too much about everybody. And there was a feeling, too, that his sense of humor was a curious one. People nearly always felt that it would be better not to risk offending Mr. Shaitana. It was his humour this afternoon to bait that ridiculous looking little man, Hercule Poirot.

In one room: Poirot and his friends play bridge. In the other: Mr. Shaitana and his exhibits play murder.

"Cards on the Table" sees Christie at the height of her powers, and also at her most self-referential. A hedonistic collector invites four detectives – Poirot,and three of her recurring sleuths, Colonel Race, Superintendent Battle, Mrs. Oliver – to play bridge with four criminals. When their host is, inevitably, murdered, it becomes clear that the four are suspects and, as Christie notes in her introduction, this is no trick: there are four suspects only. Logic and reason will see us to the conclusion. (Well, that and a damn good knowledge of bridge.)

This was the introduction into Poirot's world of Ariadne Oliver, Christie’s surrogate character in the canon, and one of her most delightful portrayals. Already bitter about her recurring Finnish detective and his silly quirks, Oliver gets to waffle on at length about detective fiction without ever feeling like she’s hammering home a point. All four detectives are permitted some investigation, which allows Poirot to function as a vital part of the novel, rather than a God. (This is not inherently a flaw but it’s nice to see him rubbing up against other people’s deductive techniques.) The victim is fascinating, the suspects equally so, and – with their backgrounds as alleged killers – the contrivances never feel like anything less than a natural part of the plot. (*coughCat Among the Pigeonscough*)

The David Suchet adaptation – which introduced Zoe Wanamaker as Oliver – took countless liberties with the plot, none of which were necessary but none were disastrous, but was delightful and atmospheric: how can you go wrong with a story such as this? There are no flaws in the story or in the construction, but interestingly this is Christie at her most Conan Doyle-esque. For those of us who aren’t familiar with bridge, the lengthy examinations of the score card are slightly bewildering, but this kind of long-form thinking – not just figuring out that the initials on a handkerchief are in a different language, for instance – comes across as real deductive thinking, the kind of powers that Poirot has always professed separate him from the lower forms of investigators.

Poirot ranking: 4th out of 38 ( )

Not the most well know of Christie's works, but I think it's one of her best. A party where the host promises Pariot will meet murderers who managed to get away with it. The host invites eight people, four suposed murderers and four other who represent law and order, including the wonderful Inspector Battle. The host winds up dead and the four "detectives" join forces to figure out who murdered him. I never guessed the murder. ( )

Cards on the Table is a suspenseful mystery about a murder that takes place during a game of bridge. The four suspects those playing all seem innocent, yet they have secrets deep in their pasts. This novel showcases the intellect, arrogance, and careful reasoning of the detective Hercule Poirot. ( )

“Permit me to tell you, madame, that you are a most remarkable woman. All my homage and respect. Yes, indeed, a woman in a thousand. Why, you have not even done what nine hundred and ninety-nine women out of a thousand could not have resisted doing.”
“What is that?”
“Told me just why you killed your husband—and how entirely justified such a proceeding really was.”
Mrs. Lorrimer drew herself up.
“Really, M. Poirot,” she said stiffly. “My reasons were entirely my own business.”
“Magnifique!” said Poirot, and, once more raising her hand to his lips, he left the room.
