Cards on the Table

Cards on the Table - Agatha Christie Only four suspects, who could it be?

This is one of Dame Agatha's books where she adeptly uses the narrative trick, as she's never used it before. You'd think that from four suspects you could easily pick out who did it. I guessed, and rationalized, because I really want to point out the murderer for once for Pete's sake, but that old woman, she kept on throwing ploys at me.

And I enjoyed being bamboozled. Cheers for this novel!
