A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation starring John Moffatt as Hercule Poirot with Stephanie Cole and Donald Sinden.

Hercule Poirot, along with three other luminaries from the world of crime detection, is invited to dinner by the renowned London socialite Dr Shaitana. Also on the guest list are four members of what Shaitana calls his Black Museum - a collection of murderers who have each succeeded in 'getting away with it'.

After midnight, when the guests prepare to leave, they make a terrible discovery. Their host is dead in his armchair, stabbed in the chest. The four sleuths are thus faced with one murder and a quartet of likely suspects. Working both together and independently, they investigate the past of the Black Museum's finest in order to determine the most likely killer.

Poirot finds that many hindrances and distractions are thrown in his way, as he attempts to read the meaning of the cards which each suspect has placed on the table.

    " This wasn't the best Agatha Christie book I have ever read but it did keep me guessing until the end. A murder is commited out in the open so that is intriguing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Geert Goeman | 2/15/2014

    " 'Cards on the Table' by Agatha Christie was first published in 1936. "

    " thiz iz amazing novel "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bea Alden | 1/22/2014

    " Four expert sleuths are invited to dinner to meet four guests who had each gotten away with murder . . . "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Qian | 1/21/2014

    " All book with Christie now is in Chinese, if there is English, I will write it . "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amanda J | 1/15/2014

    " I don't blame Christie for the two star rating. It is just that this book had so much talk about bridge that it was hard for me to follow, knowing next to nothing about the game myself. Also, I wasn't thrilled with the rather convoluted ending. Still a big fan of A.C. though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andie | 1/9/2014

    " This is a really good one too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie Q | 12/30/2013

    " I am not a huge fan of Agatha Christie probably because the format is always the same. However, I don't mind a read once in a while. This story is a well constructed one that has quite a lot of snigger moments with Poirot. He is what holds it together really. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruchel | 12/28/2013

    " Four "detectives" and four "murderers." One man brings them together and becomes the "victim." Wonderful premise and a wonderful story, very well written. (Agatha is making fun of herself when she describes the author.) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 12/8/2013

    " I thought Ariadne Oliver was a fun look at Agatha herself. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ernest Jordan | 12/8/2013

    " One of my Faves from Agatha Christie "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 12/4/2013

    " I need to learn how to play bridge. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sabyasachi Mondal | 12/3/2013

    " quite a twister!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mariam | 12/2/2013

    " not agatha christie's best .... but the last few chapters are breathtaking-ly good! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shahrah Alwani | 11/12/2013

    " This is definitely one of agatha Christie's best books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Varish | 10/7/2013

    " Good start, slow in the middle and exciting finish ! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen | 7/29/2013

    " I heart Agatha Christie! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ezra | 2/17/2013

    " The queen of crime's best!! This book is all about the characters and psychology. The writing is fantastic and Poirot is great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melalang Buana | 12/5/2012

    " I had read this when in my teenage time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ezgi | 8/23/2012

    " Best Christie book. Intriguing characters, intriguing crimes and moreover, elegance all over. I've been wanting to learn bridge ever since I read this book. Haven't still but I will someday. Hopefully I get to play it with pearls, wearing a silk gown and talking in a British accent. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheila Beaumont | 5/10/2012

    " This was a reread of an old favorite. I especially like this one because Agatha Christie's alter ego, mystery writer Ariadne Oliver, is in it, and she has some very amusing dialogue. Also, I'd forgotten whodunit, so I was able to enjoy the suspense too. A fun read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brette | 3/1/2012

    " Second Agathie Christie novel and I'm just not loving it. Quick read "

    " A little overly twisty... but fun indeed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 5/15/2011

    " Double, double, triple plot loops! Whodunit? You'll have to read to the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caroline | 5/10/2011

    " This was a very good mystery. It really kept me guessing! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Yoana | 5/3/2011

    " I liked the original red herring - having Mrs. Oliver guess the murderer right away and then discredit her throughout the book by making her a sort of a cartoonish character. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 4/27/2011

    " A mental puzzle if I've ever read one, but palatable enough to be entertaining. Vintage Christie. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Portia | 4/18/2011

    " Wonderful and ingenious. One of Christie's cleverest and best. Classic locked room mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsey | 4/10/2011

    " Only 4 potential murderers and I was still at a loss. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mimi | 3/22/2011

    " This book stumped me until the very literal last page. I loved that about this book. Loved, loved, loved it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jody | 3/18/2011

    " I love Agatha Christie. She rocks. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ezra | 3/15/2011

    " Keeps you guessing; Christie is able to make all of the characters plausible murderers, so that it is impossible to tell whodunnit until the very end. Very crafty writing. "
