Deal me OUT During Agatha Christie’s early life, bridge was a staple of upper middle class English life. Everyone was expected to play because it was a way to keep a room full of people occupied. As a character in REBECCA says, “What else can you DO in the evenings?” Television not having been invented and conversation being out of the question, apparently.

One of Christie’s best, but not as well known Been reading & re-reading Christie for 50 years. Classic cozy British mysteries and this is one of my favortites. She should be read in the order in which she wrote the books, the characters age & circumstances change but the detectives (Hercule Poirot & Miss Marple, principally) are forever themselves. Christie is the best at misdirecting the reader and she outstrips every other author in terms of volume! Highly recommend reading her: she’s a classic. And so is Cards on the Table.
